Pininfarina recently whetted our appetites with a couple of abstract renderings of its imminent PF0 hyper-EV – its first self-branded car – and the company is continuing the drip-feed approach by now releasing some arty sketches of how the car’s interior will shape up.
The PF0’s unveiling is set to take place at the upcoming Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and its creator promises the PFO will be the “most powerful Italian sports car ever” when it goes on sale in two years’ time, with an alleged output of 1,000bhp-plus. The company also boasts of a sub-2sec 0-100kph split and top speed of 400kph-plus.
Lightweight carbonfibre bodywork will help offset the weight penalty imposed by the battery pack and electric motors, so we expect the car to tip the scales at under 1,800kg.
Pininfarina says it will build just 150 units of the PF0, although there’s no indication of pricing. Given its exclusivity and the cutting-edge engineering that’s going into the car, we wouldn’t be surprised if it ends up costing more than the Bugatti Chiron.
Although the official debut of the car will take place at the Geneva motor show next March, the preview in Monterey will be accompanied by a comprehensive design brief by Pininfarina Design Director Luca Borgogno.
“Our presence in Monterey is an inspiring chapter in the story of realising Battista Farina’s long-held dream: One day there will be beautiful cars solely branded Pininfarina,” said Automobili Pininfarina CEO Michael Perschke in a statement.
“These special VIP previews mean that future PF0 owners, most of whom will undoubtedly own numerous modern and historic classics, have an opportunity right now to be part of the birth of the company and their hypercar.”
