Automobili Pininfarina is set to globally introduce the captivating Battista Edizione Nino Farina, a hyper GT designed to commemorate the remarkable legacy of motorsport legend and the inaugural F1 World Champion, Nino Farina. The unveiling will take place at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, slated for July 13th to 16th, where racing icon and previous Goodwood hillclimb Champion, Nick Heidfeld, will drive the vehicle.
Why It Matters
The Battista Edizione Nino Farina is the latest design edition to join the prestigious Battista series, which includes the highly coveted Battista Anniversario. Its design salutes the impressive career and audacious spirit of Nino Farina, the nephew of company founder and design legend, Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina. The hyper GT is a testament to Pininfarina’s innovative commitment to eco-conscious luxury vehicles and their passion for honoring family heritage and the historic world of racing.
Restricted to just five unique examples, each Battista Edizione Nino Farina showcases a distinctive exterior design, including a Rosso Nino paint accented by contrasting Bianco Sestriere and Iconica Blu finishes. Aesthetically pleasing ’01’ body side graphics and Glorioso Gold wheels enhance the vehicle’s allure. Inside, black sustainable leather and beige leather interiors, complete with exclusive ‘Nino Farina’ inscriptions, offer a bespoke luxury experience. Furthermore, each vehicle boasts a unique aluminium door plate, marking one of the five notable milestones in Nino’s illustrious career.
The hyper GT’s design edition will make its dynamic debut close to the Goodwood Circuit, where Nino Farina clinched victory in the 1951 Goodwood Trophy. This proximity poignantly ties the present unveiling with the venue’s historic significance and Farina’s personal victory.
The introduction of Battista Edizione Nino Farina underscores Automobili Pininfarina’s continued dedication to the fusion of innovative design, sustainability, and respect for heritage. This limited-edition hyper GT provides an exclusive driving experience, blending breathtaking performance with a nostalgic nod to the fearless spirit of a racing icon. With its unique design elements and attention to detail, this release solidifies Automobili Pininfarina’s standing as a leader in the luxury electric vehicle sector.
