Italian marque Pininfarina has officially unveiled its limited-to-five Battista Anniversario at the Geneva International Motor Show.

The special-edition hypercar follows on from Pininfarina’s standard Battista, which is limited to no more than 150 copies. For the Battista Anniversario, the Italian manufacturer has taken its electric hypercar as the base and reworked it to become 10kg lighter, deliver an increased top speed of 217 MPH, and has equipped it with new forged aluminum wheels and performance-oriented tires.

Altogether, the Pininfarina Battista Anniversario will become Italy’s most powerful road-legal car ever made, offering 1,900 hp and 2,300 Nm torque from its four electric motors that are mounted inside a carbon fiber monocoque chassis and body. New additions for the Anniversario edition include a “Furiosa” pack that equips the car with a revised carbon fiber front splitter, side blades and rear diffuser, which are finished in a two-tone colorway of the marque’s signature carbon and “Iconica Blu” tinted carbon with pinstripes in “Bianco Sestriere.”

Each of the five Anniversario cars is finished in a combination of three signature colors, with “Bianco Sestriere,” an all-new “Grigio Antonelliano” hue, and Pininfarina’s signature “Iconica Blu” gracing the body. The paintwork takes several weeks to finish by hand, while its pinstripes are hand-painted onto a disassembled body for the most precise finish.

Pininfarina’s Battista Anniversario is set to cost from €2.6m EUR (approx. $2.87m USD) and will roll out alongside the 145 other Battista’s by the end of 2020.
