Ferrari’s Design Company Working On A $2M Electric Hypercar
The company which designed the Ferrari F40, Pininfarina, is planning to launch a $2 million electric hypercar according to reports. Pininfarina has designed Maserati cars as well. Now the company is planning to launch its own hypercar in hopes to set a benchmark in the history of car making. The company is calling this the PF0 or the PF Zero.
Pininfarina was responsible for designing the classic Ferrari F40. The company showcased its capabilities in the 2016 Geneva Automobile Convention. With their H2 Speed 2018, the company introduced the world to its first hydrogen-powered hypercar. The car could go from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.4 seconds. The new PF0 plans to blow that record out of the water by supposedly going from 0 to 100 miles/hr in less than two seconds.
In the press release, Michael Perschke, the CEO of Automobili Pininfarina said:
Automobili Pininfarina is a pioneering new business created to service the most discerning clients in the world. Our product portfolio will launch with an innovative, zero-emissions hypercar that represents the progression we aim to make at the pinnacle of the luxury and sports car market.
With PF0 the company aims to deliver speed and luxury in a single package. The car could do well in Silicon Valley where the electric car is the new buzzwords.
PF0 will feature a charging time from 0 to 80 percent in a mere 15 minutes. This puts Tesla’s Supercharging stations to shame which take up to 20 minutes for a 0 to 50 percent charge.
Pininfarina designed the Ferrari F40 to run on gasoline, with their PF0 the company wants to enter the electric hypercar market. To face the competition the company has to keep up with the market standards of an electric car. Whether or not Pininfarina can set itself apart from the competition will be seen when the concept is unveiled at the 2019 Geneva convention.
