Gotham and the Dark Knight – special versions of Pininfarina supercars in the Batman style

The Italian company Automobili Pininfarina, in the absence of new models, produces special versions of existing ones: electric supercars B95 and Battista are now available in Gotham and Dark Knight versions , they were created in partnership with Warner Bros., which owns the rights to the fabulous superhero Batman and all related characters.

The automobile manufacturing company Automobili Pininfarina spun off from the Italian design studio of the same name in 2018; the studio itself has been owned by the Indian company Mahindra & Mahindra. The first Automobili Pininfarina model was the Battista electric supercar, created in collaboration with the Croatian company Rimac, its production began in 2022. Last year, the Pininfarina B95 spider debuted, which is essentially a roofless version of the Battista. Pininfarina has no other models of its own yet, but the B95 and Battista are presented this week in Gotham and Dark Knight Batman liveries.

Over his long history, Batman has driven a huge number of cars specially created for him on movie screens and on the pages of comic books, but the special versions of the Pininfarina B95 and Battista were created, in essence, not for him, but for clients of the Italian brand who appreciate the aesthetics of the world of Batman. Perhaps Warner Bros. and will let Batman drive these wonderful Italian supercars, but the press release says nothing about this – at the moment this is a purely commercial collaboration for lovers of expensive exclusives.

The decor of both special versions uses the logos of Wayne Enterprises, the company of businessman Bruce Wayne, who, in fact, is Batman, aka the Dark Knight, aka Man-Bat. Gotham is, recall, a fictional city in which Batman lives and fights crime. Batman has a devoted butler, Alfred Pennyworth, the keeper of the superhero's garage, and his voice is narrated by the voice assistant of Pininfarina supercars. Battista, in connection with the Batman special versions, received a modified bat-style aerodynamic tail, slightly increasing downforce at high speeds.
