Battista hyper GT becomes the fastest accelerating car in the world; sets record-breaking acceleration figures.

The new tests confirm that the Battista hyper GT is also the fastest braking EV in the world, completing 100-0 km/h in just 31 metres.

Luxury Italian carmaker Automobili Pininfarina has confirmed the Battista hyper GT’s performance credentials by revealing its record-breaking official acceleration and braking figures for the first time. Battista hyper GT was tested at the Dubai Autodrome, and it broke all the previous records to become the world’s fastest accelerating car. It is also the fastest-braking EV in the world now.

The official performance figures of the Battista hyper GT are:

  • 0-60mph in 1.79s
  • 0-100km/h in 1.86s
  • 0-120mph in 4.49s
  • 0-200km/h in 4.75s
  • 100-0km/h (braking) in 31 metres

The pure-electric Battista is the most powerful Italian car ever made, with 1,900 hp and 2,340 Nm of torque. The hyper GT has a top speed of 350 km/h, a WLTP range of up to 476 km, and is priced from €2.2 million plus local taxes. Battista’s performance credentials were recorded and verified at Nardò, in Italy, as part of its global test and development programme earlier this year.

Automobili Pininfarina is making the hyper GT at the new Atelier space in Cambiano, Italy. Battista is hand-crafted by a team of over ten craftspeople. From start to finish, the assembly of each Battista takes ten weeks. First deliveries of the car to customers worldwide are underway.

Paolo Dellacha, Automobili Pininfarina Chief Product and Engineering Officer, said: “I am proud that our new electric hyper GT delivers on the promises we made when we set out our development plan. In Battista, we have achieved performance beyond our original, extreme targets.

“Perfectly optimized weight distribution and low centre of gravity are at the heart of this result. The combination of bespoke chassis and suspension tuning, tyres proven over many thousands of test miles, and four-motor torque vectoring delivering unprecedented power enable Battista to be the fastest-accelerating road-legal car in the world.

“Battista’s incredible technical package includes a carbon ceramic brake system, helping the Italian hyper GT become the fastest braking electric car in the world. Our discerning clients here in the UAE have been overwhelmed by the Battista driving experience, which is as breathtaking as its award-winning design.”
