Italian design company Automobili Pininfarina already announced a couple of stunningly beautiful, and insanely quick new cars at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show: the H2 Speed supercar and the luxury all-electric HK GT. And now, in anticipation of the 2018 Beijing Auto Show, Pininfarina has revealed that (a) they will officially move to specializing in high-end electric cars, and (b) they are coming out with an electric hypercar code-named PF0 (shown in concept sketches above and below) that will be an absolute rocket on four wheels.
The Pininfarina HK GT boasts a powertrain made up of independent permanent magnet motors with 2-speed transmission and microturbine range-extender and will go from 0 to 100km/h (62mph) in 2.9 seconds.
Meanwhile, the H2 Speed, which was awarded the 2016 Concept Car of the Year Award and named Best Concept at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, accelerates from 0 to 62mph in 3.4 seconds using a 653 horsepower full power hydrogen powertrain made up of four electric synchronous motors with permanent magnet, and will reach 186 mph with zero emissions.
Take a peek at both cars below, and learn more about them here.
As for the upcoming PFO, Automobili Pininfarina says the PF0 will do 0 to 62mph in under two seconds, hit 186mph in less than 12 seconds, reach a top speed beyond 250mph, and have a driving range of greater than 310 miles. (I have to assume they don’t mean at 250mph.)
Pininfarina is planning a production run of less than 100 units with the first deliveries scheduled for sometime in 2020. And considering the PFO will be targeting the same market as cars like the Aston Martin Valkyrie, the Mercedes-AMG Project One, and the Rimac Concept Two, expect it cost in the neighborhood of somewhere between $2.5 and $3 million each. (It’s a very nice neighborhood.)
