The Battista hypercar from Mahindra-owned Automobili Pininfarina has broken a world record. The chairman of the Mahindra Group, Anand Mahindra, shared the significant achievement in the auto business on Twitter.
In-Depth about The Pininfarina Battista hypercar, owned by Mahindra, surpasses all previous records for speed on public roads:
Industrialists shared a Robb Report piece stating that Pininfarina’s Battista hypercar is now the “fastest street-legal vehicle in the world.”
He continued, “The Mahindra group, of which Automobili Pininfarina is a part, was responsible for the conception of the entire project.
On Twitter, users praised the head of the Mahindra Group. Anand Mahindra was dubbed a “True visionary” by one user.
“Great feat, the price of the car is outrageous, nearly 20 crores Indian rupees,” another person commented.
According to Report, the Italian coachbuilder declared on Wednesday that its first battery-powered hypercar was the fastest-accelerating vehicle in the entire globe.
The report said, “It’s not just the fastest-accelerating electric vehicle; it’s the fastest-accelerating road-legal vehicle period.”
The hypercar shattered the Rimac Nevera record (at 1.86 seconds) this week at the Dubai Autodrome, accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in under 1.79 seconds.
The Battista hypercar accelerates from 0 to 120 mph in 4.49 seconds, making it the quickest vehicle overall. Additionally, according to Robb Report, the vehicle can slow down from 60 to zero mph in just 102 feet, which is a record for an EV.
The carbon fiber monocoque chassis of the car contains the battery cells in a T-shaped arrangement. Between the passenger and the driver is a central tube where the battery is installed.
The battery pack contains 6960 lithium-ion cells and has a 120kWh capacity.
The Battista was initially unveiled four years ago, but it wasn’t until this summer that it actually entered production. Only 150 examples of the hand-built electric hypercar from Pininfarina are expected to be produced. The report states that each car requires 1,200 hours to finish. The vehicle is already being delivered and has a starting price of $2.25 million at the current exchange rate.
