BRUCE WAYNE-INSPIRED HYPERCARS FROM AUTOMOBILI PININFARINA

by | May 2, 2024 | Cars, Motor, Sustainability

Automobili Pininfarina, the bespoke hypercar maker based in Cambiano, Italy, has curated a collection of luxury electric cars for Batman fans. The vehicles are inspired by DC’s Bruce Wayne, the billionaire alter ego and civilian person of the DC super hero. That comic book character was best personified in the Christopher Nolan-directed movies, with Christian Bale in the lead role. After a few limp movie versions starring Ben Affleck, the movie series is looking to make a comeback with Robert Pattinson in the lead role, with a second movie due out in October 2026.

The new luxury electric cars are in collaboration with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products and Relevance International. Automobili Pininfarina has created two exclusive versions of the B95 hyper Barchetta and Battista hyper GT, named Gotham and Dark Knight, with many unique and previously unseen technical specifications. All four cars are powered by a high-capacity 120kWh lithium-ion battery and four motors to generate 1,900hp. That’s enough to propel each pure-electric model from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in less than a two second sprint – faster than a current Formula 1 car.

This design is intended to reflect the more gentle, civilian sophistication of Bruce Wayne. Both the B95 and Battista models are upholstered in a distinctive tan leather that includes bespoke quilting in the centre panels, along with tan stitching.

The Gotham Battista’s bodywork is finished in a stunning Argento Vittorio gloss paint, complemented by the Nero Torino gloss paint Goccia roof. To finish the look, the brand’s iconic ‘F’ logo is back-lit and made of brushed and polished anodized aluminium. The 20-inch front and 21-inch rear alloy wheels are finished with a Prezioso Evoluzione gloss black face and matt black channel rim.

The Gotham B95’s wheels closely match those of the Gotham Battista, except they are finished in a matt black inner and gloss black outer ring, with Titan callipers and a brushed aluminium anodized black rim centre lock ring to complete the look.

Battista and B95 Dark Knight and Gotham: inspired by Wayne Enterprises

New luxury electric cars reflect the personality of Bruce Wayne

By contrast, the Dark Knight design reflects Bruce Wayne’s use of technology to maintain an edge in his fight against Gotham City’s criminal underworld. These vehicles feature black Alcantara and black leather upholstery, with a unique black and gold duo-tone contrast stitch.

The Dark Knight Battista’s bodywork is finished in Nero Profondo gloss paint, with Nero Torino ‘Goccia’ roof, and Glorioso ceramic-polished rims complete the look. The Dark Knight B95’s exterior matches the Battista, also featuring ceramic-polished rims.

All four designs reflect Wayne Enterprises’ pursuit of innovation and Bruce Wayne’s own personality. From subtle use of the Wayne Enterprises corporate logo throughout the vehicles, to customised seat embroidery and the voice inspired by Alfred Pennyworth, these dreams cars are the embodiment of the Gotham City icon’s persona.

The Battista Dark Knight and Battista Gotham are priced at $3.64 million USD. The cars are available for purchase here. For more on hypercars and supercars, head here.
