On April 29th , Adamas Motors and Automobili Pininfarina introduced its stunning pure-electric 1,900 hp Battista hypercar to the Middle East, at its regional launch event. The event took place at the Bvlgari Hotel in Dubai to VIP guests and media.
Having arrived in Dubai just 10 days after its successful North American debut in New York, this world-first car will be faster to 100 km/h than a modern-day Formula 1 car and represents a new level of desirability for electrification in the UAE, one of the world’s most successful markets for supercars. The Italian-designed and hand-built hyper GT makes a clear statement that electric cars can be beautiful, desirable and extremely powerful – the classic supercar ingredients.
Luca Borgogno, Design Director, Automobili Pininfarina, said: “We are proud to be in Dubai for the Battista’s Middle East debut. Just a few weeks after it was launched at the Geneva International Motor Show, where it received an amazing reception, we have arrived in one of the world’s most discerning countries for supercars and luxury cars. The Battista’s classic hypercar proportions combined with cutting-edge technology that delivers 1,900 hp and zero emissions will be a new experience for its owners in the UAE, and we believe will make them fall in love with ultra-high-performance electric vehicles.”
A maximum of 150 Battista hypercars will begin production at the iconic Pininfarina S.p.A. automotive atelier in Cambiano, Italy, in the second half of 2020. Just 50 are anticipated to be available to cover the Middle East and Asia markets; therefore high demand is expected for this zero-emission high-performance car.
