Automobili Pininfarina has shown a teaser image of its hypercar. The car’s internal name is PF0 and the image reveals only the rear of the car. The car will feature a split rear spoiler, with the centre of the car swooping down towards the tail in a smooth, flowing design.
Luca Borgogno, Head of Design at Automobili Pininfarina, says, "The design of the PF0 is very special, with lots of unique design touches like the split tail that gives the car a special identity."
Michael Perschke, CEO, Automobili Pininfarina, says "The PF0 will look like it has been designed with just a few strokes of the pen, and what it stands for is purity of design and purity of emissions." Perschke confirmed that only 150 units will be made. “We will make 50 units a year and are aiming for model years 2020, 2021 and 2022,” said Perschke.
Anand Mahindra, chairman of Mahindra & Mahindra, which owns Pininfarina, said, "We do believe the PF0 is, in every sense of the term, a halo car. What we want now is both the qualities of purity and design - which Pininfarina represents - to give a halo to everything Mahindra does. Design, of course, not only in the conventional combustion-engined cars, but also in renewable energy."
Automobili Pininfarina said the car will offer a power output of 1,900hp, which should give it Bugatti Chiron-crushing performance. Pininfarina also says the car can hit 100kph in "less than two seconds" and will go on to hit the 400kph barrier.
The PF0 is expected to cost $2 million (approximately Rs 14 crore, excluding taxes) and will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2019.
