In March this year, Italian design house Pininfarina announced that it’s all set to become an automaker by building its own all-electric hypercar, codenamed PFO. Back then, very little was information was revealed; all we got to know was it will be launched sometime in 2020 and will have massive amount of power to promise unbelievable performance figures. However, Pininfarina-Automobili has finally divulged some of those numbers, and we have to say that they are just as crazy as we expected them to be. Pininfarina claims that the PFO will have a top speed of 250mph, while the zero to 60mph time will be below two seconds. Those numbers are close to what Tesla is promising with its next-generation Roadster.
What’s interesting is that Pininfarina is promising a range of 310 miles between stops to recharge the batteries along with Porsche Taycan-like charging times of 10 to 15 minutes for 80 percent capacity. But, the Italian electric hypercar won’t be cheap; Pininfarina estimated that the PF0 will cost between $2 million and $2.5 million. That’s close to the starting price of the Bugatti Chiron. In comparison, the Tesla Roadster is expected to be priced close to the $200,000 mark, making it an absolute bargain. The Pininfarina-Automobili PFO will make its debut at next year’s Geneva Motor Show, but the potential customers will get a private review of the hypercar at the upcoming Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August.
