The combination of bespoke chassis and suspension tuning, tires proven over many thousands of test miles and four-torque vectoring motors delivering unprecedented power enables Battista to be the fastest accelerating roads–legal car in the world.
“Battista’s incredible technical package includes a carbon ceramic brake system, helping the Italian hyper GT become the fastest braking electric car in the world. Our discerning clients here in the UAE have been overwhelmed by the Battista driving experience, which is as breathtaking as its award-winning design.”
