-Inspired by an automotive legend from the 1950s: introducing Automobili Pininfarina Battista Cinquantacinque

CAMBIANO, Italy, May 8, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Automobili Pininfarina has selected a unique Battista commission as a fitting tribute to the 1955 Lancia Florida, a vehicle designed and loved by Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina.

The Lancia Florida was designed by Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina in the early 1950s. It was recognized as a rolling sculpture that inspired new design perspectives. Pinin’s personal Florida, which can be admired as part of the Pininfarina SpA Collection in Cambiano (Torino), was the daily driving force of the founder of Carrozzeria Pininfarina throughout his career. The stunning Battista Cinquantacinque hyper GT pays tribute to this unique heritage.

Its exterior is finished in a flawless Blu Savoia Gloss paint, which contrasts with the Bianco Sestriere Gloss roof and is completed with the elegant Brushed Anodised jewel package. Inside, it is upholstered in custom-made Mahagoni (Poltrona Frau Heritage leather). The livery and the name Cinquantacinque, which translates to ’55’ in Italian, elegantly honor the iconic and classic 1955 Lancia Florida, designed by Carrozzeria Pininfarina.

The Cinquantacinque model features a series of unique inscriptions that mark its heritage and provenance. Both the passenger door badge and the bottom of the active rear spoiler feature the ‘Cinquantacinque 55’ signature.

Each Battista is powered by four independent electric motors and a powerful 120 kWh lithium-ion battery, providing 1,900 HP and 2,340 Nm of torque. This advanced propulsion system guarantees exciting performance, such as acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 1.86 seconds and 0 to 200 km/h in 4.75 seconds, as well as a comfortable driving range of up to 476 km.

The Battista Cinquantacinque will make its public debut in Tokyo, Japan, when it is introduced to customers in the region, together with retail partner, SKY GROUP, as part of Automobili Pininfarina’s continued global expansion.

Customers in the region will be able to see Automobili Pininfarina’s ‘Dream Cars’ promise. Real fact.’ first-hand, provide a personalized customer experience and ensure that each hand-crafted vehicle that leaves the Atelier facilities in Cambiano bound for Japan is a unique expression of each customer’s personality.

Dave Amantea, head of design at Automobili Pininfarina, said: “This was a truly special and unique opportunity to design a car that pays tribute to the legacy of Pininfarina SpA. The color combination of the Battista Cinquantacinque is incredible and shows the vision that Battista had. Farina when he designed the Lancia Florida in the early 1950s, but that same model helped guide me in creating the PURA Vision design concept, a truly unique vehicle that lays the foundation for future Lancia models. “Automobili Pininfarina”.

The Lancia Florida sedan not only inspired the Cinquantacinque Battista, but also some of the key design elements of the PURA Vision design concept, a vehicle that sets the template for all future Automobili Pininfarina models.

The 1950s sedan has rear-opening doors and no B-pillar, which directly translated into the PURA Vision’s saloon doors. They swing dramatically upwards and, in combination with the pillarless opening and rear-hinged rear doors, provide unrestricted access to the spacious 2 2 seats of the design concept.

Automobili Pininfarina is at the forefront of the pure Italian luxury experience, with its personalized approach allowing precise adaptation to each client’s specific preferences. Each vehicle is a unique masterpiece, handcrafted and a reflection of the customer’s personality with inspiration from the artisans at Automobili Pininfarina.
