Pinin’ PF0 wants in on hy­per­car wars

All-elec­tric, £1.7m and 250mph top speed... it isn’t muck­ing about

Top Gear (UK) - - THE TEN -

Her­itage. Pin­in­fa­rina has it in spades, which makes its new­est ven­ture – a sep­a­rate car­mak­ing en­tity called Au­to­mo­bili Pin­in­fa­rina – some­thing ex­cit­ing to be­hold. Mainly as it’s plan­ning an elec­tric hy­per­car that’ll see the scary side of 250mph.

Wel­come to the PF0. Or at least the back of it. Un­der­neath a full car­bon-fi­bre body sits a pow­er­train ca­pa­ble of 0–62mph in less than two secs, 0–186mph in less than 12, and that scary top speed. AP reck­ons on 310 miles of range, less so if per­chance you fall upon an empty au­to­bahn...

AP is look­ing to a 2020 launch date for the PF0; the year Pin­in­fa­rina cel­e­brates its 90th an­niver­sary. No more than 90 are ex­pected to be built, each cost­ing in the re­gion of £1.7m each.

“Pin­in­fa­rina’s de­sign val­ues of el­e­gance and sim­plic­ity present us with a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to stand out from the styling of most cur­rent sports and hy­per­cars,” de­sign boss Luca Bor­gogno says.

Like we say, her­itage.
