Boasting a 1900-HP engine, the car is estimated to go from 0-62 mph in just two seconds — faster than a Formula 1 racing car.

“The Battista is the hypercar of the future, inspired by a legendary past. It combines true inspiration and innovation in its technical achievement and emotional appeal,” stated Automobili Pininfarina’s CEO Michael Perschke.
