Automobili Pininfarina has recently unveiled its latest automobile, the B95, an exceptional high-performance convertible hypercar, at the prestigious Monterey Car Week gathering. This new model, known as the B95, draws inspiration from the Italian term “barchetta,” representing a two-seater sports car with no roof. It shares its fundamental framework with the Battista, a creation from Rimac.
The foundational structure includes a T-shaped casing constructed from carbon-fiber, housing a potent 120.0-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. This battery powers four distinct electric motors, each positioned at a wheel, culminating in a staggering 1877 horsepower output. The B95 showcases remarkable acceleration, achieving the 0 to 60 mph sprint in less than 2.0 seconds, and attaining an impressive top speed surpassing 186 mph.
These extraordinary figures, especially for a convertible and windshield-less vehicle, are complemented by rapid recharging capabilities. The hypercar can efficiently utilize a DC fast charger, boasting a capacity of up to 270 kW. This allows the battery to charge from 20 to 80 percent within an astonishing 25 minutes.
While the powertrain technology might seem familiar, the B95 truly distinguishes itself through its exceptional design. Evident through its broad and low proportions, the hypercar flaunts elegant lines and a sharp front fascia, enhanced by an expansive trim piece accommodating advanced LED headlights.
Incorporating transparent polycarbonate aero screens mounted on adaptable aluminum arms, the vehicle manages wind deflection, compensating for the absence of a conventional windshield. For buyers, bespoke helmets will accompany the B95, alongside aerodynamic augmentations like sleek fairings that emerge behind the seats, optimizing airflow.
The particular variant exhibited at the Monterey event is adorned with a distinct gray hue, referred to as Bronzo Superga, infused with delicate gold flecks. This shade forms a striking contrast with the vibrant yellow paint, Giallo Arneis, adorning the front section and the driver’s side fairing.
It’s noteworthy that the carbon fiber finish adorns the front splitter and the rear diffuser, while the black aluminum wheels, with a size of 20 inches at the front and 21 inches at the rear, contribute to the vehicle’s aesthetic allure. Additionally, the brake system features the eye-catching Giallo Arneis color.
Within the cabin, the design closely mirrors that of the Battista coupe, characterized by a dashboard and center console layout. A trio of screens is elegantly positioned behind the steering wheel, complemented by extensive carbon fiber detailing across the remaining dashboard area.
Tan leather upholstery envelops the seats, center console, and dashboard, offering a delightful contrast to the brushed black aluminum accents. Adding a touch of sophistication, the seat headrests showcase an elegant Pied de Poule Houndstooth fabric.
Restricted to a production run of merely 10 units, each B95 will emerge as a unique masterpiece, owing to a wide array of personalization options. Detailed pricing information has yet to be unveiled by Pininfarina.
