Automobili Pininfarina has presented its bespoke new commission for its client; the Battista Reversario. The company described it as “its most unique commission to date”.

Automobili Pininfarina said the Battista Reversario is the “pinnacle” of its philosophy in creating truly unique vehicles for its clients. Automobili Pininfarina designers collaborated with the client to create a truly bespoke design for the Italian road-legal pure-electric hyper GT model; one that will never be repeated.


“Reversario was the ultimate commission,” said Automobili Pininfarina chief design officer Dave Amantea. “Taking inspiration from the original Anniversario, it is a reflection in every aspect, using a timeless combination of colours to create an opposite that works alone and together. This is a vehicle that is the greatest expression of our ‘Dream Cars. Made Real.’ philosophy, to date.”

“Anniversario and Reversario were destined to be created by the Automobili Pininfarina team,” the anonymous client said. “I simply challenged them to understand what could be created if you follow your heart and passion.”

The Battista Reversario was inspired by the Battista Anniversario model and has integrated elements from the model such as the pinstripes are consistent with the upper stripe in the signature Iconica Blu as well as its high-capacity 120 kWh lithium-ion battery contained within a strong yet lightweight carbon fibre housing. The Reversario is distinguishable through its striking colour scheme; its lower body finished in Bianco Sestriere gloss and its upper body in Grigio Antonelliano gloss.

Inside, the Pilota seats are fitted with a white-on-white Alcantara quilting with a perforated background in Iconica Blu. While the cabin is primarily black including the bespoke chassis plate anodized in black, there are accents throughout with the cupholder retainer, the headliner centre bezel, and the seatbelts, all finished in Iconica Blu.

The Reversario will join the client’s collection of vehicles, which includes the fifth model out of five of the limited run Battista Anniversario models. The client added: “The twins are complete and total perfection that has never been achieved by the automotive world. Not only do they have legacy and pedigree, where they bear the name and indelible mark of the world’s greatest car designer, they also complement each other as mirror images.”
