MUNICH: Automobili Pininfarina has announced a long-term partnership with the Pininfarina design studio regarding the PF0 as well as its future electric vehicles.
The idea is to develop a "Pura" design vision, keeping vehicle design as pure as possible.
Automobili Pininfarina is currently working on a spectacular car, the PF0, capable of topping 400kph at top speed and doing 0 to 100kph in two seconds.
Rumours suggest power equivalent to 1,900hp and range is reportedly close to 500km. The German former Formula 1 and current Formula E driver, Nick Heidfeld, has been enlisted as the car's development driver.
The latest prototype to date has only been presented privately, which explains why no official photo has yet been released. The final model should make its debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, before starting to roll out the following year. Note that only 150 PF0 models will be produced.
After this debut, Automobili Pininfarina - which is part of the Indian multinational car maker, Mahindra & Mahindra - plans to develop other production models starting with a somewhat less elitist SUV.
The 89th Geneva Motor Show takes place March 7-17, 2019.
