Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, 13th November 2022 – Automobili Pininfarina has marked another milestone in its journey as the Battista pure-electric hyper GT takes to Middle East roads for the first time in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The arrival of the Battista in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, coincides with a strengthened presence in the region following the appointment of luxury mobility specialists, Nine Motors, as Automobili Pininfarina’s newest retail partner. Nine Motors is responsible for the sale and service of the award-winning hyper GT in key locations across Saudi Arabia and takes the total of world-class retail partners to 27 globally.
Discerning clients and collectors in the region had the exclusive opportunity to experience the production Battista – the most powerful road-legal Italian car ever built – on local roads for the first time. The hyper GT delivers a unique pure-electric performance package featuring 1,900 hp, 2,340 Nm of torque, 0-100 km/h acceleration in under two seconds, and a top speed of 350 km/h. The Battista achieves this – as well as a choice of five driving modes – while producing zero CO2 emissions and an electric driving combined WLTP range of 476 km. With prices starting from €2.2 million, the luxury Battista is now available to clients and is hand-crafted in Italy.
The unique models have been exclusively designed to feature an array of subtle elements, such as personalised LED skyline welcome lamps, and unique Mulliner exterior details. Three Bentley models, the Flying Spur W12, Bentayga V8, and Continental GT Speed have been selected to honour the Dubai skyline, while the Flying Spur W12, Bentayga V8, and Continental GT Speed will pay tribute to the city of Abu Dhabi.
Per Svantesson, Automobili Pininfarina CEO, said: “The team and I are very proud to bring Battista to Saudi Arabia for its dynamic launch in this important country for our brand. With no more than 150 cars to be commissioned and individually hand-crafted at the Atelier in Cambiano, Italy, we are delighted to work with Nine Motors in the region and are looking forward to welcoming new clients to the Automobili Pininfarina family.”
“It is a very special time for Automobili Pininfarina: the hyper GT has now made its Riyadh debut and production is accelerating daily at our bespoke Atelier. I am looking forward to being able to demonstrate what some of our existing clients already highly value – including Battista’s performance and luxury personalisation service – across the Middle East.”
