Automobili Pininfarina has announced a new PF0 electric hypercar of their own, and they’re already saying they are targeting the Middle East and the UAE in particular.
The company plans to tour the region with the PF0 concept car in the second half of 2018. They intend to partner with the “world’s best luxury car retailers” in order to help deliver a one-to-one sales experience, according to Automobili Pininfarina CEO Michael Perschke.
The electric hypercar has a stated ambition to accelerate to 100 kph in less than two seconds, break the 250 mph (400 kph) top speed barrier, and provide a potential zero emissions range of almost 500 km.
Ex-Formula 1 and current racing driver Nick Heidfeld will be an integral member of the team developing the PF0 vehicle dynamics programme from the beginning of 2019 due to his Formula E experience, prior to the all-electric hypercar’s on-sale date of late-2020.
Perschke said: “PF0 is borne from the 50 year old dream of Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina, to see a stand-alone Pininfarina-branded range of cars that are both beautiful and technologically advanced.”
Automobili Pininfarina was officially launched in Italy this April of 2018, where it announced its plan to sustainably develop and produce fully-electric ultra-luxury cars in low volumes.
