Shows what you can do with instant torque.

So, here are some stats. Maker Automobili Pininfarina claims its Battista does 0-62mph in less than two seconds, 186mph in less than 12 seconds, has a top speed of more than 250mph, and does 280 miles on one charge.

Its brake horse power (bhp) is equivalent to 1,900, about twice that of a Formula 1 car (a decent-sized Ford Fiesta, Britain's best-selling car, has a bhp of between about 84 and 138).


The thing must be a bear to drive. Other cars in this class usually come with a key that unlocks the oh-fuck features, which the owner has to earn by attending a driving school.

Those who really manage to do 250 MPH won't do it for long with 280 miles on a charge.

Two million puts one in your garage.

Perhaps the same amount would put an electric EXTRA 330 in your hanger.

It would be able to hang, if not accelerate and climb straight up, hanging from the prop.
