Pininfarina electric hypercar headed to Monterey. 0-100km/h in under 2.0s

Automobili Pininfarina, the famed design studio turned car manufacturer, has released some juicy details of their inaugural model the PF0 all-electric hypercar which will debut at Monterey Car Week.

Sadly for you and I, the showing will be private and reserved for people who have shown “significant interest” in the car. But for those lucky enough to be invited, they can expect a full-scale model that previews the PF0’s styling and technology.

Prospective customers will also get a glimpse of the car’s cockpit, which will feature a compact steering wheel and a small digital instrument cluster. They are flanked by digital displays on either side showing navigation and other vehicle information. There’s also a head up display ahead of the driver.

According to the world’s newest car brand, the PF0 will draw inspiration from some of Pininfarina most iconic models, including the 1947 Cisitalia 202, the 1970 512S Modulo and the 2008 Sintesi concept.

“We are defining a car that is not overdesigned; we want something that is super clean and looks impossibly simple. Whenever you look back at classic Pininfarina cars, these qualities stand out,” said design director Luca Borgogno.

According to Pininfarina, the PF0 is capable of dashing from 0-100km/h in less than two seconds before hitting a top speed in excess of 300km/h. The electric hypercar will feature lightweight carbon fibre body panels and is said to have a range of up to 500km.

The PF0 will be handcrafted in Cambiano, Italy from 2020, with no more than 150 to be built.
