Following aero refinement work carried out in Italy, Automobili Pininfarina has revealed new design details of its ‘Blu Iconica’ Battista. Evolutions include changes to some of the details and definition at the front of the Battista and reinforcements to its hypercar look and feel, presenting an even greater visual connection between front and back.

Luca Borgogno, design director at Automobili Pininfarina, said, “It is incredibly exciting to be presenting the Battista in Turin and near to its home in Cambiano. Since its debut at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, the Battista has stunned audiences all around the world with its beauty and pure design. I am pleased to be presenting it with these latest masterstrokes that make the form of the car even more beautiful and elegant, and true to Pininfarina’s design principles.”

Pininfarina chairman Paolo Pininfarina commented, “We are really proud of the Battista. The design teams at Pininfarina and Automobili Pininfarina have worked hard to create a work of art. We never stop aiming for perfection in car design, so are pleased to be able to add these design details to the front surfaces that, I believe, reinforce the Battista’s elegance and beauty.”

Battista is currently undergoing further testing including wind tunnel analysis and track work under the guidance of ex-Formula 1 and Formula E racer Nick Heidfeld, Automobili Pininfarina’s chief development driver.
