Predicated upon its its PURA Vision design concept, Automobili Pininfarina has developed the B95, its first-ever all-electric hyper barchetta. Production and delivery will begin in 2025, marking the 95th anniversary of design house Pininfarina SpA.

“This is the most exciting chapter of the Automobili Pininfarina story so far – we’re taking another big step forward,” said Paolo Dellachà, Automobili Pininfarina CEO (Photo: Automobili Pininfarina)

B95 made its world premiere at Monterey Car Week in August, presented alongside the Battista Edizione Nino Farina hyper GT, which debuted at Goodwood Festival of Speed in July, as well as the recently launched PURA Vision design concept.


The design of B95 is exemplified by full-width enveloping bodywork which wraps around into the front fenders, and a high swage line.

Pronounced wheel arches enabled the design team to add extra shape to the connection between the arches, and the bodyside.

The B95 also features the world’s first electronically adjustable aero screens. The clear polycarbonate design incorporates exposed aluminium supports and can be raised and lowered by the client.


The B95 is powered by the same powertrain as in the Battista hyper GT. It can reach 0-60mph in less than 2 seconds, and has atop speed of more than 300km/h (186mph)

There is a choice of five driving modes to tailor the driving dynamics: Calma, Pura, Energica, Furiosa and Carattere, which are activated via a rotary selector, located next to the steering wheel (Photo: Automobili Pininfarina)

It features a high-capacity 120 kWh lithium-ion battery generating peak power of 1400 kW (1900 PS). The T-shaped battery pack, which is liquid-cooled, is protected within a strong and lightweight carbon fibre housing and can be charged using DC fast chargers up to 270kW – for a 20-80% top up in as little as 25 mins.

Power is delivered to the road via four independent high-performance electric motors – one driving each wheel.

Andrea Crespi, Chief Technical Officer, Automobili Pininfarina, noted, “We’ve selected the latest technology to make it a vehicle people desire to own, as well as a thrilling place to be.”
