Pininfarina PF0 electric supercar to get Rimac power
Next year Pininfarina will reveal its all-electric hypercar with a Rimac developed powertrain at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show
Pininfarina has been responsible for penning some of the world’s most beautiful cars. Historic designs include that of the Dino, Ferrari 250GT Berlinetta Lusso, Ferrari Enzo, and Alfa Romeo Spider to name but a few. However, the Italian design house has always looked forward, as the Ferrari Modulo concept can attest. Its ‘next big thing’ is an all-electric hypercar that’ll have Rimac battery power.

For those of you who don’t know Rimac, they were one of the pioneers for all-electric supercars and, as well as creating their own cars, will now help supply others with electric powertrains. Pininfarina announced that its PF0 will use a Rimac powertrain and battery technology. The car is being developed by its new operational headquarters in Munich, Germany in a bid to be at the centre of European technological advancement.
The Pininfarina PF0 has only been publicly previewed in design sketches so far, but we like what we’ve seen. A lucky few were invited to a private revealing at the recent Pebble Beach concours — the rest of us will have to wait until the Geneva Motor Show 2019.
The clean design appears typical of the Italian company with simplistic details doing most of the talking. Both the battery and drivetrain are to be kept low for optimum weight distribution, something that is tricky to master considering the weight of batteries.
This sleek supercar is aiming for an electric range of 300-miles and a 0-62mph time of around 2 seconds — figures that would rival or exceed the performance of the very best combustion-based supercars today.
Pininfarina intends to build just 150 PF0s at a cost of around £2 million each. Pricey, but it might just become one of the fastest performance cars money can buy, electric or otherwise.
