• The two all-electric hypercars share the same powertrain and look fabulous.
  • 150 units of the Battista are being built, while production of the B95 is capped at just 10 cars.
  • Pininfarina hasn’t provided up-to-date sales figures for the Battista or B95.

Automobili Pininfarina hopes to expand its footprint across Asia and has introduced the exclusive B95 Barchetta and the bespoke Battista Cinquantacinque in Japan.

The small Italian car manufacturer has entered the Japanese market with the assistance of local retail partner Sky Group in Tokyo. It says it will provide customers with a “personalized client experience” and that each car bound for Japan will be “a unique expression of each client’s personality.” Pininfarina hasn’t revealed how many orders it has from Japan nor when it will start local deliveries.

The B95 Barchetta is the brand’s most exclusive and expensive model. It was unveiled at last year’s Monterey Car Week with an eye-watering price tag of €4.4 million ($4.74 million) and shares its powertrain with the Battista. Compared to the Battista, the exterior design of the B95 is relatively simple and has fewer dramatic curves.

The example brought to Japan appears to be the same one that debuted in Monterey. It is painted in a combination of grey and yellow and sits on 20-inch front and 21-inch rear forged aluminum wheels painted in matte black. The interior of the car is also quite extraordinary. It includes seats with tan-colored leather, while the headrests are trimmed in houndstooth textile with black and white elements.

 Pininfarina Battista And B95 Barchetta Touch Down In Japan

Pininfarina took off the covers of the special Battista Cinquantacinque last week. It has been designed as an homage to the 1955 Lancia Florida designed and owned by Battista Farina. The exterior of the electric hypercar is bathed in Blu Savoia Gloss, with a Bianco Sestriere Gloss white roof.

Like the B95, the interior of the Battista Cinquantacinque has also been trimmed in the finest materials, including heritage leather from Poltrona Frau.

Pininfarina is building 150 examples of the Battista. As of mid-2022, the firm said roughly half of the available order slots had been taken, but it remains unclear if all 150 have been sold since.
