Last year we were taken aback by a new electric supercar at Pebble Beach. While Enzo Ferrari concentrated on his race team Automobili Pininfarina was responsible for styling and building the production cars. Nothing lasts forever, and Ferrari eventually brought production in-house. This gave Pininfarina freedom to move their headquarters to Munich, and develop the amazing Coke Freestyle machine. Perhaps this was a ruse to make us think they were out of the automotive industry, but their latest creation is about to shake up the world. In their latest press release, we learn that the Pininfarina Battista refinement continues for Monterey.
Extensive wind-tunnel runs and hours of simulation are punctuated by real-world testing. Development driver Nick Heidfeld said, “The acceleration of Battista is totally mind-blowing.” That is probably because it offers 1,900 horsepower and 1,696 lb-ft of torque. This updated version will be unveiled at The Quail on August 16th.
The House of Automobili Pininfarina will be located near the Pebble Beach Golf Club and it will host a series of exclusive events.
