It will be presented alongside the Battista Edizione Nino Farina hyper GT, which pays homage to the illustrious racing career and fearless spirit of motorsport legend and the first ever F1 World Champion, Nino Farina, nephew of design icon and Pininfarina SpA founder Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina.
This pair of exclusive Italian masterpieces from Automobili Pininfarina showcase the company’s PURA design philosophy, in the form of collectors’ pieces conceived for its discerning clients.
Paolo Dellachà, Chief Executive Officer, Automobili Pininfarina, said: “I’m excited to bring the newly launched collection from Automobili Pininfarina to customers, retail partners and enthusiasts to the East Coast of America.
“This is the most exciting chapter of the Automobili Pininfarina story so far. As the world’s first carmaker dedicated to the creation of purely electric luxury cars, B95 is a demonstration of what’s possible when you remove all boundaries. Our PURA design philosophy has enabled creation of an unmistakable silhouette, inspired by of the glorious tradition of Pininfarina design and the incredible sports cars it has created throughout history.
“The Battista Nino Farina hyper GT is the ultimate celebration of our heritage. This exclusive collection of five unique vehicles pays tribute to a family dynasty, and the courageous and fearless persona of the world’s first Formula One World Champion.”
First revealed during Monterey Car Week, the breath-taking B95 is the first pure-electric, open-top hyper Barchetta ever built. It is a design and technology limited edition icon – the simplicity of its flowing open-topped bodywork contrasts with exquisite technical details to provide a dramatic interpretation of a classic racer, underpinned by pure-electric performance. This masterpiece has been designed by the Automobili Pininfarina Design team and in collaboration with Pininfarina SpA, developed and hand-crafted in Cambiano by a team of artisans.
Handcrafting and deliveries of this limited-run masterpiece will begin in 2025, marking the 95th anniversary of Pininfarina SpA. The ‘B’ in its name stands for Barchetta, both elements combined creating the name Automobili Pininfarina B95.
Automobili Pininfarina’s PURA design philosophy expresses an elegant silhouette and dramatic proportions, as demonstrated by the recently unveiled PURA Vision concept. The principles established here have been translated for B95, balancing inspiration from iconic classic race cars with futuristic elements.
It is powered by the same state-of-the-art powertrain that delivers breath-taking performance in the Battista hyper GT, but with a unique tune for such a bespoke vehicle. Accelerating from 0-60mph in less than 2 seconds, B95 has a top speed of more than 300km/h.
There are unlimited personalisation opportunities for collectors specifying B95, ensuring each one of the 10 examples will be unique. To find out more click here.

Just five examples will ever exist and the curated collection represents the second ‘design edition’ in the Battista portfolio, following the Battista Anniversario.
The unique exterior design is finished in bespoke Rosso Nino – a deep and rich red hue that pays homage to the vehicles Nino Farina drove throughout his racing career. Its intricate body and Rosso Nino paint are complemented by a special livery on the lower body, finished in Bianco Sestriere and Iconica Blu.
Inside, clients will find beautiful detailing specific to the Edizione Nino Farina, including a black anodised chassis plate with a bespoke ‘Nino Farina’ dedication, while the passenger door plate is unique to each vehicle, in celebration of a different milestone from Nino Farina’s life:
