Pininfarina, Naim Audio pair 1,874 horsepower with 1,300 watts of sound
The bespoke audio system delivers 1,300 watts of power through 10 speakers. It has a dual voice call subwoofer between the driver and passenger seats and super-tweeters are located behind the seats of the coupe in the panels of the car's butterfly doors.
"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," said Rene Wollmann, Automobili Pininfarina Director of Sportscars. "We will also harness the sound of Battista's four e-motors, which will provide a unique and exciting soundtrack when this hypercar accelerates at speeds up to 350 km/h. Electrification creates an entirely new dimension and opportunity for sound tuning throughout Battista."
Naim Audio, a division of VerVent Audio, is relying on its sister brand Focal to optimize the speakers for their environment. The teammates have tuned the car's amplification and built-in Digital Signal Processing system to deliver an immersive experience with auditorium-like effect. In a release, the company says that this "will make it seem as if musicians are playing inside Battista itself."
At cruising speeds, the nature of Battista will be serene and peaceful and in this scenario, sound quality will be critical," said Charlie Henderson, Naim Audio Managing Director. "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."
Each Pininfarina Battista will be hand-crafted in Cambiano, Italy. No more than 150 will be made. The car starts at 2.6 millions euros.
