Following an LA preview, the official debut will happen in Geneva.
Last summer Pininfarina released some teaser images of its upcoming all-electric hypercar, the PF0. An official debut is scheduled for this March at Geneva, but Automobili Pininfarina figured the LA Motor Show would be the ideal setting for a sneak peek. With its Rimac-supplied all-electric powertrain capable of producing about 2,000 hp, the PF0 is being teased once again today, but these images are definitely more revealing.
A private showing took place for invited guests only last August at Pebble Beach, so some people outside of Pininfarina have seen the finished product, but they’ve been sworn to secrecy.
But now we can all get a closer look at what’s coming in a few months’ time. Notice the single LED light bar that stretches across the front, connecting the headlights together. Also notice the horizontal LED taillights, prominent wheel arches, and carbon fiber rear diffuser. This design philosophy is being called ‘PURA’, which focuses on aerodynamics, advanced engineering solutions, and extreme levels of power thanks to electrification.
Speaking of which, Pininfarina claims the PF0 will be capable of hitting 62 mph in less than 2 seconds and will have a top speed in excess of 250 mph. It will also have a driving range of more than 300 miles.
Along with the PF0 preview, Pininfarina has also announced a 20 million euro investment ($22.59 million) that will be used for the design, development and production of the PF0 as well as future models.
If all goes to plan, PF0 production will get underway in the near future with sales beginning sometime in 2020. And yes, the PF0 will apparently be sold in North America along with Europe. According to Pininfarina’s new CEO, Michael Perschke, North American “response to (the) PF0 has been overwhelming, with nearly three-quarters of the allocation for that market now reserved by clients.”
