Want To Drive Like Bruce Wayne? At P 207M, It Ain't Cheap

What would Bruce Wayne and Batman drive in real life? That’s the inspiration between this Automobili Pininfarina with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products and Relevance International collab. Part of a range of branded products for living the Bruce Wayne life (plans include luxury residences), these hypercars don’t come cheap.

Based on the Automobili Pininfarina B95 hyper Barchetta and the Battista hyper GT, these two vehicles were transformed into two highly exclusive versions—Gotham and Dark Knight. This partnership will launch at and will be followed by an invite-only first-of-its-kind retail theater concept coming in the next few months. Four will be made available—two in the Gotham trim and two in the Dark Knight trim.

Like the B95 hyper Barchetta and Battista hyper GT, the Gotham and Dark Knight are quad-motor EVs that generate 1,900 horsepower and 2,300 Nm of torque. This is enough to propel each one to 100 km/h in less than two seconds—faster than a Formula 1 car. A high-capacity 120-kWh lithium-ion battery ensures a comfortable 483-kilometer range between charges.

Setting the Gotham and Dark Knight versions from the B95 and Battista, these Batman-inspired creations get Wayne Enterprises-inspired displays including an instructional voice command featuring Alfred Pennyworth.

Exterior-wise, the Battista Gotham and Dark Knight cars benefit from a completely new door and roof design where a large portion of the roof is curved glass. They also have tailgate shark fins and louver openings in the front and rear wings for improved aero efficiency. The exterior is completed with Wayne Enterprises logos on the side skirts and roof, and all models display a unique aluminum chassis and door plate, inspired by Bruce Wayne.

Splitting the two models apart, the Gotham has a more “civilian” look with its tan leather interior with quilting in the center panels.

The bodywork is finished in 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 aluminum. The 20-inch front and 21-inch rear alloy wheels are finished with a Prezioso Evoluzione gloss black face and matt black channel rim.

By contrast, the Dark Knight design goes all “menacing” with its 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.

As for pricing, they start at USD 3.6 million (P 207 million) for the Battista Gotham and go up to USD 5.2 million (P 300 million) for the B95 Dark Knight.
