Battista anniversario Design: Handcrafted Italian artistry

The finishing of each of the five cars will be in exclusive Pininfarina anniversary livery. It comprises of three signature colors. Bianco Sestriere, never seen before Grigio Antonelliano and signature Iconica Blu.

Furthermore, the artist will paint each car for three weeks by hand. They will paint layer by layer & color by color. After every coat, they will disassemble the body. So, pinstripes in three separate colors can be hand-painted directly onto the body. The assembly and disassembly of the body take place three times during the entire painting process.

This is arguably the most complex hand made paint finishes in the world. The result is more than just a visual work of art.
