Pininfarina Battista front end redesigned ahead of launch

The Pininfarina Battista, the first hypercar from the storied design house, has had its front end redesigned before going into production. Pininfarina says it has evolved the "purity and beauty of front surfaces" in response to aerodynamic testing. The automaker claims the revisions provide a "greater visual connection between front and back". The U-shaped element running between the Battista's headlights has been removed, as have the ducts around the headlamps.

Pininfarina teases electric PF0 hypercar

Now, in a pair of American interviews, the company has revealed some extra performance figures that should make the upcoming Tesla Roadster very, very nervous. Speaking with Wired and The Verge, Pininfarina has confirmed the PF0 will hit 60mph (97km/h) in less than two seconds, hit 250mph (402km/h) and cover 310 miles (500km) on a single charge.

While it is perhaps known best for its work with Ferrari, many will quickly sing the praises of Pininfarina's design and production work with the likes of Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Fiat, Lancia, BMW, Volvo - not to mention Mitsubishi, Cadillac and Chevrolet, among others.
