Naim Audio has created a 1300 Watt ‘sound experience’ for the Pininfarina Battista, the world’s first pure-electric luxury hypercar.

The bespoke Naim Audio system features ten speakers engineered into the cabin of the rare Italian pure-electric hypercar. The new Battista prototypes are now being prepared for final testing and development programme commencing in August

Every Battista pure-electric hypercar will be hand-crafted by Pininfarina in Cambiano near Turin in Italy, with deliveries to clients worldwide beginning early in 2021. No more than 150 of these luxury cars will be created, each specified with a bespoke in-car sound system by British brand Naim Audio.

Rene Wollmann, Automobili Pininfarina Director of Sportscars said: “Our clients are eagerly anticipating the unprecedented 1,900 PS driving performance of Battista, and now we will provide an equally thrilling 1,300 Watt in-car sound experience for their pleasure. We will also harness the sound of Battista’s four e-motors, which will provide a unique and exciting soundtrack when this hypercar accelerates at speeds up to 350 km/h. Electrification creates an entirely new dimension and opportunity for sound tuning throughout Battista.”

Naim Audio has drawn on the expertise of its fellow VerVent Audio brand, Focal, to optimise all speakers for their unique environment

The newly developed Battista audio system delivers 1300 Watt of power through 10 speakers arranged inside the cabin of Automobili Pininfarina’s first pure-electric car. The new system features a Dual Voice Coil Subwoofer located between driver and passenger seats, with super-tweeters amplifying higher frequencies situated behind the seats and in the panels of Battista’s butterfly doors.

Tuning is optimised for both driver and passenger: a symmetrical speaker layout creates an auditorium-like studio effect.

Charlie Henderson, Naim Audio Managing Director, said: “I am thrilled that our first EV hypercar audio system has been created specifically for the groundbreaking Battista by Automobili Pininfarina. In the electric vehicle era, audio becomes more important than ever. At cruising speeds, the nature of Battista will be serene and peaceful and in this scenario, sound quality will be critical. We see this as a fantastic opportunity to create an all-new sound experience that is as revolutionary as Battista itself. Using the finest components from audiophile-grade automotive speakers, alongside our expertise in DSP and audio tuning, Battista will offer an exceptional sonic experience.”
