Pininfarina ties up with Naim for a new luxury audio system
Automobili Pininfarina just announced a partnership with Naim Audio. Combining power and performance, the collab offers the ultimate sound experience to prospective owners of Battista, the most powerful Italian sports car of all time.
The newly developed Battista audio system delivers an incredible 1300 Watt of sonic power through 10 speakers elegantly engineered into the cabin of the rare Italian pure-electric hypercar. The new system features a Dual Voice Coil Subwoofer located between the driver and passenger seats, with super-tweeters amplifying higher frequencies situated behind the seats and in the panels of Battista’s dramatic butterfly doors.
With deliveries to clients worldwide beginning early in 2021, every Battista pure-electric hypercar will be hand-crafted by Pininfarina in Cambiano, near Turin, in Italy. Only 150 models will be created, each specified with a bespoke in-car sound system by the award-winning Naim Audio.
Automobili Pininfarina is also preparing a small fleet of prototype Battista hypercars for the final stages of a rigorous test program beginning in August.
Rene Wollmann, Director of Sportscars for Automobili Pininfarina said:
“Our clients are eagerly anticipating the unprecedented 1,900 PS driving performance of Battista, and now we will provide an equally thrilling 1,300 Watt in-car sound experience for their pleasure. At cruising speeds, the nature of Battista will be serene and peaceful and in this scenario, sound quality will be critical. We see this as a fantastic opportunity to create an all-new sound experience that is as revolutionary as Battista itself. Using the finest components from audiophile-grade automotive speakers, alongside our expertise in DSP and audio tuning, Battista will offer an exceptional sonic experience.”
