CAMBIANO, Italy and MUNICH, July 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Automobili Pininfarina is paying tribute to a motorsport icon with an exclusive new limited-edition version of its award-winning electric hyper GT: the Battista Edizione Nino Farina.

The Design Edition will make its dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where it will be driven up the famous hill by former F1 star and hillclimb record holder Nick Heidfeld. In his capacity as advisor to Automobili Pininfarina, "Quick Nick" has played a key role in the Battista's history to date.

Following the success of the limited edition Battista Anniversario, the latest model represents the fascinating story of F1 legend Nino Farina, the first ever F1 world champion and nephew of design icon Battista "Pinin" Farina. His dynamic debut will take place a few hundred meters from the Goodwood circuit, where Nino was victorious in the 1951 Goodwood Trophy (a non-championship F1 race).

With only five examples for customers around the world, the custom features that adorn the exterior and interior of the Battista Edizione Nino Farina pay homage to the Turin-born motorsport legend. Each car in the series celebrates one of five milestones in Nino Farina's incredible racing career, ensuring that every collector owns a one-of-a-kind masterpiece of Italian design.

Paolo Dellachà, CEO of Automobili Pininfarina, explained: "The Battista Edizione Nino Farina embodies the vision of our talented design team, paying evocative homage to an undisputed legend of the Pininfarina family and his legacy. An untold story of the spirit and the courage of a man moved by a passion for racing like no other."

"Our customers demand rarity, exclusivity and the quality of execution synonymous with unique Pininfarina designs and bodywork from the past. Battista Edizione Nino Farina combines all these elements with the phenomenal performance of the most powerful car ever made in Italy, the Battista. In our imagination , Nino would have dreamed of driving with his uncle Battista, pushing the car to the limit. Like he did every time he raced."

"Driving this car will be an experience very much like putting on a superhero suit, an exceptional and emotional experience is guaranteed. I am looking forward to personally presenting the Battista Edizione Nino Farina at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed."

honoring a legend

Battista "Pinin" Farina was the founder of the famous Carrozzeria Pininfarina. He is the namesake of Automobili Pininfarina's first vehicle, the Battista, in honor of his dream of creating an exclusive vehicle for the Pininfarina brand.

As Nino Farina's uncle, he was responsible for igniting the future World Champion's passion for motorsport. Battista took his 16-year-old nephew to participate in his first race as a passenger. This whetted his appetite for competition and Nino entered numerous races and championships throughout Italy in the 1930s.

In 1950, Nino Farina competed in the first Grands Prix formally organized by the FIA ​​- the current Formula One World Championship - at the helm of a three-car team. In his first year in the World Championship, Nino Farina won the races in Great Britain (the first held at Silverstone), Switzerland and Italy, taking the World Championship in his team.

Nino Farina was a highly respected Formula 1 driver among his peers, noted for his fearless driving and passion for the sport, which contributed to his early F1 victories in his debut year. He led his teammates in the first race of 1950, at Silverstone, and capped off the season by winning the Italian Grand Prix in September.

A subtle detail distinguishes each Edizione Nino Farina with the bespoke aluminum passenger door plate, anodized in black with one of five exclusive designs, ensuring that each customer has a unique vehicle. Each model will celebrate a different milestone in the life of Nino Farina:

· Date and place of birth of Nino (1906 in Turin)

First pole position in F1 history and victory at the 1950 British Grand Prix

Nino's second victory in 1950 at the Swiss Grand Prix

The third and last victory in 1950, at the Italian Grand Prix

1950 Victory in the F1 world championship


Perfectly balancing technological innovation with a nod to Pininfarina's elegant past, Battista's unrivaled design has been elevated with Edizione Nino Farina and its heritage-inspired livery.

Dave Amantea, Design Director of Automobili Pininfarina, said: "This exclusive model pays tribute to the fearless and fearless personality of Nino Farina and his incredible achievements in motorsport. It is our tribute to a family dynasty: the man who will always be known as the first driver to be proclaimed Formula 1 world champion and our founder, the man who ignited his passion for racing."

"Each vehicle is a tribute to Nino's unique story and each one represents a unique moment in his life that was truly remarkable. We have been inspired by these moments to create a vehicle that would be the centerpiece of any collection. The characteristic color Rosso Nino's bodywork has been chosen to evoke the Italian racing red paintwork of the cars in which he achieved his greatest victories, while key finishes and design details fit perfectly with Battista's unmistakable design."

The unique exterior design is finished in Rosso Nino, a deep red hue that pays homage to the vehicles that Nino Farina drove throughout his racing career. The intricate bodywork and Rosso Nino paint are complemented by a special lower body livery, finished in Bianco Sestriere and Iconica Blu.

The Bianco Sestriere and Iconica Blu accents extend to the custom accent stripes on the door mirrors and the lower portion of the rear spoiler, with custom graphics including a laurel wreath, while the number "01" in Bianco Sestriere appears on a large graphic on the rear panel located behind the door.

Featuring a revised carbon fiber front splitter, side wings and rear diffuser, finished with a Bianco Sestriere stripe, the Furiosa Pack adds further exterior distinction, while the Carbon Accent Pack is finished in Signature Black Exposed Carbon.

Dark accents extend to the Goccia roof, while the exterior jewelery package is finished in black anodized brushed aluminum. This complements the black brake calipers and center lock rings, which are finished in black anodized brushed aluminium. New Glorioso 10-spoke forged aluminum alloy wheel designs feature a distinctive Satin Gold finish.

Subtle exterior details referencing Nino Farina can be seen throughout the vehicle. A bespoke "Nino Farina" engraving on the headlamp unit is finished in black anodized brushed aluminum, while the carbon driver's side winglet is enhanced with a signature "Nino Farina" graphic.


The interior of the Battista Edizione Nino Farina features a bespoke two-tone design, with the driver's seat trimmed in black sustainable luxury leather and the passenger seat in contrasting beige and black Alcantara.

The Pilota seats feature a unique design between the driver and passenger, both with a bespoke quilt pattern and "Nino Farina" on the backrest. On the black driver's seat, the bespoke headrest features an embroidered laurel wreath and "01" graphic in gold, while the Pininfarina logo is finished in red on the beige passenger seat. The backs of both seats are painted in Rosso Nino, matching the exterior bodywork.

Following the exterior theme, the upholstery is accented with Iconica Blu seatbelts, with bespoke duotone contrast stitching in beige and red on the center tunnel, dashboard and seats. The steering wheel is finished in black Alcantara with exposed carbon, with a contrasting rim at 12 o'clock in red anodized brushed aluminum. The attention to detail extends to the steering wheel plate, finished in black anodized brushed aluminum, with the "Nino Farina" signature. As on the exterior, the dark accents are extended to the interior with the black anodized brushed aluminum interior jewelery package.

Throughout the interior are beautiful details specific to the Edizione Nino Farina. The chassis plate is anodized in black with the personalized "Nino Farina" dedication, while the passenger door plate is exclusive to each vehicle.


Like the Battista and Battista Anniversario, the Edizione Nino Farina is powered by a state-of-the-art powertrain that offers record-breaking performance. The world's first pure electric hyper GT uses a high capacity 120 kWh lithium-ion battery housed in a strong and lightweight carbon fiber casing.

Four high-output independent electric motors, one for each wheel, combine with Full Torque Vectoring, Electronic Stability Control and a software differential to allow drivers to tailor power delivery and handling responses like never before. , while its T-shaped liquid-cooled battery pack is centrally mounted behind the seats to ensure a low center of gravity.

The Battista's unique launch control technology contributes to acceleration similar to that of a Formula 1 car, with 0-60 km/h in 1.79 seconds, 0-100 km/h in 1.86 seconds, a 0 to 120 km/h in 4.49 seconds and a 0 to 200 km/h in just 4.75 seconds. A car as fast as the Battista demands great braking capacity, and official tests confirm that the Battista is the fastest stopping EV in the world, completing 0-100 km/h in just 31m.

The highlights of Battista's performance data:

1,900 horsepower (1,400 kW)

· 2,340 Nm of torque

0-100 km/h (0-62 miles per hour) in 1.86 seconds and 350 km/h (217 miles per hour) top speed

Up to 476 km range (296 miles, WLTP combined), US EPA: 300 miles

The Battista combines the performance of a hypercar with the cruising range and luxurious cabin of a traditional GT, with four-wheel drive and the possibility to choose between five driving modes to adapt driving dynamics: Calm, Pure, Energetic , Furiosa and Character.
