Rear Wing Contrast

Thanks to the active aerodynamics you can present the Rear Wing underside in a special way by painting it in a contrast colour.  


Also the Rear Detailing Screws can be personalized with a great range of colours to underline the beautiful rear of the Battista.

Front Nose

For an additional accent it is possible to modify the visual appearance of the Front Nose. 

Choose your colour according to the main body or go for a contrast colour to give your Battista a special front face character. 

Olive Leaf Tanned Leather

The leather tanning process is constantly evolving. The Olive Leaf Tanned Leather proposed by Seton is produced with a 100% organic tanning agent made of aqueous olive leaf extract. Olive leaf tanning uses fallen or pruned leaves to create an organic tanning extract.

Olive leaf tanned leather can be finished with embossing, metalization and patina effects just as much as standard leather. The color range achievable with this technology is very much linked to its natural origin.

Battista Exterior Jewellery Pack

The Exterior Jewellery Pack of the Battista is an important design element made out of aluminium. 


You can choose between: 


Brushed Aluminium Anodized

Brushed Aluminium Anodized in Iconica Blu

Brushed Aluminium Anodized in Black 

Brushed Aluminium Anodized in Gold

Brushed Aluminium Anodized in Titan


You can also have your own bespoke painted or anodized variant.

Coloured Carbon Fibre

Hypetex is the world’s first coloured carbon fiber: 


A high performance, light, bright and strong composite material, born after seven years of extensive research and development on F1 technology.


The innovative colorization technology enhances the texture of the weave whilst maintaining intact the performance of the material. The industrial process is highly energy efficient , aimed at reducing loss of thermal energy, and it uses water based and solvent-free eco-resins

Re-Invented Natural Materials

With an ever growing demand for sustainability, authenticity and transparency, we felt compelled to look at our production processes, to find ways to reduce or upcycle our own waste and regenerate end-of-life materials.


Companies like Authentic Materials in France can use production scraps of leather and wood to create high-end, luxury new materials, effectively creating a circular economy.

Upcycled Material

Thanks to Aquafil, discarded fishing nets are regenerated into the high quality Econyl® yarn, which is then used for the production of brand-new products, such as Racemark’s automotive mats.


Racemark’s vision is to become the global leader in sustainable automotive floor protection by 2023, in the aim to develop and sell products that create no waste and require no new material resources, because they can be recovered at the end of their useful life and endlessly upcycled, recycled or regenerated.


One example is our approach to interior stitching.
