Automobili Pininfarina has introduced a range of custom-made all-electric vehicles inspired by the fictional character Bruce Wayne from DC Comics, in partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products and Relevance International. Known for his forward-thinking mindset and interest in cutting-edge technology and sustainable practices, Bruce Wayne’s sophisticated style aligns with Automobili Pininfarina’s exclusive Italian design and high-end customer service approach, allowing customers to customize their dream car alongside skilled artisans and the design team at the Cambiano Atelier.

Automobili Pininfarina has introduced two special editions of their hypercars inspired by Bruce Wayne’s persona onto their Barchetta and hyper GT models. These exclusive versions, called ‘Gotham’ and ‘Dark Knight’, have been meticulously designed to reflect the lavish lifestyle of the iconic character, known for his appearances in various forms of media since his inception in 1939. This collaboration will debut on followed by a unique retail concept premiering this summer, showcasing an Automobili Pininfarina Battista in an invite-only setting.

The CEO of Automobili Pininfarina, Paolo Dellachà, commented, “Our partnership with Wayne Enterprises in collaboration with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products, DC, and Relevance International is a natural extension for Automobili Pininfarina. It is driven by our joint commitment to innovative and sustainable technologies that promote the future of mobility. This partnership enables us not only to excite our clients but also to engage and inspire a wider and more diverse audience.

Dave Amantea, Chief Design Officer at Automobili Pininfarina, stated: “Designing a hypercar powered by electricity and inspired by Bruce Wayne is a fantastic project for our team. It allows them to let their creativity run wild, imagining themselves in the shoes of such an iconic figure like Bruce Wayne. These two unique versions of our hypercars are the ultimate vehicles for the man famously known for wearing a mask.”

Andrea Crespi, Chief Technical Officer at Automobili Pininfarina, concluded: “Wayne Enterprises is a symbol of innovation and a testament to an unwavering commitment to pushing boundaries. The B95 Barchetta and Battista hyper GT vehicles already embody this visionary spirit, showcasing the tireless dedication and brilliance of our technical teams at Automobili Pininfarina.”

Robert Oberschelp, Head of Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products, added: “Working with Automobili Pininfarina to design these exceptional, cutting-edge vehicles showcases our Wayne Enterprises principle: collaborate with top-tier brands to bring Bruce Wayne’s sophisticated taste to life. These remarkable hypercars, featuring intricate design and futuristic technology, embody the essence of the Wayne lifestyle while offering a groundbreaking product unlike anything else available in the market.”

Automobili Pininfarina has introduced two exclusive versions of the B95 hyper Barchetta and Battista hyper GT, named Gotham and Dark Knight, each with unique and innovative technical specifications. All four vehicles are equipped with a high-capacity 120kWh lithium-ion battery and four motors that produce 1,900hp. This power enables each electric model to accelerate from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in under two seconds, faster than a current Formula 1 car.

The Battista and B95 models come with new features inspired by Wayne Enterprises. They have an advanced HMI display with a voice similar to Alfred Pennyworth. The Battista models have performance enhancements like tailgate shark fins and front and rear carbon fiber wings with louver openings for better aerodynamics. They also feature Wayne Enterprises logos, an aluminum chassis, and door plates inspired by Bruce Wayne.

In keeping with the ‘Dream Cars Made Real’ philosophy, both the Battista Gotham and Dark Knight cars have redesigned interiors with a large curved glass roof to create a brighter atmosphere inside.

Gotham specification
This design is meant to represent the refined, sophisticated style of Bruce Wayne. Both the B95 and Battista models feature a unique tan leather upholstery with custom quilting on the center panels and tan stitching.

The Gotham Battista features a body in striking Argento Vittorio gloss paint with a Nero Torino gloss paint Goccia roof. The iconic ‘F’ logo is illuminated and crafted from brushed and polished anodized aluminum. Its 20-inch front and 21-inch rear alloy wheels sport a Prezioso Evoluzione gloss black face and matte black channel rim.

For the Gotham B95, the wheels are similar to the Battista’s but with a matte black inner and gloss black outer ring, Titan calipers, and a brushed aluminum anodized black rim center lock ring for a coordinated appearance.

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

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

All four designs mirror the dedication to innovation by Wayne Enterprises and reflect Bruce Wayne’s personal style. These luxurious vehicles embody the essence of the iconic figure of Gotham City, incorporating details such as the Wayne Enterprises logo, custom seat embroidery, and a voice inspired by Alfred Pennyworth.

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 customized seat embroidery and the voice inspired by Alfred Pennyworth, these dream cars are the embodiment of the Gotham City icon’s personal.
