First official pic: new Pininfarina PF0 hypercar

A private debut for Pininfarina’s incoming electric hypercar at Pebble Beach

This is the first official image of Automobili Pininfarina’s new electric hypercar, dubbed the PF0.

The car itself was shown in a private preview at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance show in California over the weekend. We’re told the private viewings concluded in an “overwhelming response” to what the team is attempting to produce.

Range? It’s being projected at over 300 miles, and each one is expected to cost £1.7m each. No more than 150 cars will be built, at AP’s Cambiano facility from 2020.

The final design and name will be revealed at next year’s Geneva Motor Show. Just six months to go before we see what’s what…
