Pininfarina Battista is the fastest electric car in the world

Rimac Nevera is no longer the fastest production car in the world from a standing start. Despite having beaten the Tesla Model S Plaid, now the Croatian supercar must once again regain the world title.

As the city prepared for the Formula 1 finale, Pininfarina took to the track at the Dubai Autodrome to establish the fastest production car record in the 0-100, clocking a time of 1.79 seconds. Furthermore, the 1,877 horsepower super electric car did 0-120 in just 4.49 seconds, setting another record.

Pininfarina claims that the Battista will exceed the acceleration of a Formula 1 car; a message of a certain thickness which, however, only concerns the shot from a standstill and on a straight line. Having reached the corner, we are sure that Verstappen's RB would take off without problems. Curves and aerodynamics aside, Battista is not only snappy but capable of stopping even in extremely short times. According to the manufacturer, it takes just 31 meters to go from 100 km/h to 0. Paolo Dellacha, Chief Product and Engineering Officer of Automobili Pininfarina, said: “I am proud that our new electric hyper GT keeps the promises made when we defined our development plan. With Battista, we have achieved performance exceeding our original extreme goals.”

Only 150 will be made, which seems fitting for a world record-breaking, $2 million-plus car. We recently tested the Porsche Taycan Turbo S, a 761 horsepower (peak) “station wagon” capable of burning 0-100 km/h in just under three seconds. Trying and retrying the shot, we noticed a certain "daze" after a few attempts and we can't imagine how brutal the sprint of a car can be, capable of further lowering the time by more than a second. On MotorLabs we put the butt on supercars of all kinds, but the thrust provided by the electric in this context is truly unattainable and, at times, unimaginable.
