2022 proved to be a huge year.

Elon Musk found himself in hot water with the Tesla stock disaster and messy Twitter takeover, but somehow still found the time to deliver one of Tesla’s most anticipated vehicles.

In addition to that, not one but two supercar makers introduced off-road supercars.

From the Will Smith-Chris Rock slapping incident to the new hypercars unveiled this year, how much do you know about 2022’s defining moments?

Time to put your knowledge to the test with our 2022 quiz.

#1. Who is the 2022 Pininfarina Battista hypercar named after?

The Battista is named after the company’s founder: Giovanni Battista Farina.

Some may not know that the name of the company is also a tribute to the founder.

It combines his nickname ‘Pinin’ (Italian slang for ‘younger’) and his last name ‘Farina’.

#2. Which of these Tesla models was delayed again in 2022?

Yup, all three have been delayed.

Production of the Cybertruck and the Roadster was postponed again in 2022.

The as-yet-unnamed city car, slotted below the Model 3, was first teased last year.

But we haven’t heard anything about it since.

#3. Which of these statements about Tesla (in 2022) is TRUE?

It is true that Tesla finally delivered the first SEMI trucks to customers in 2022.

The other answers are false.

This is because Tesla lost nearly 70 percent (!) of its value since the start of the year, and there have been numerous Model Y recalls in 2022.

#4. What is the new off-road-friendly Porsche 911 called?

The Porsche 911 Dakar is finally here by popular demand.

911 fans and collectors have been asking for a 911 model that could go off-road and, well, Porsche was happy to oblige.

#5. What makes the Richard Mille UP-01 Ferrari so unique?

At 1.75 mm, the RM UP-01 Ferrari is the world’s thinnest watch.

And yet, despite its $1.8 million price tag, it’s not the most expensive Richard Mille ever.

#6. Why is the convertible Maserati MC20 called 'Cielo'?

‘Cielo’ is Italian for ‘sky’, or ‘heaven’.


#7. What were the Saudi Arabia players rumored to get as a thank-you for beating Argentina in the World Cup?

Saudi Arabia pulled off a stunning upset as they beat Argentina 2-1 in the opening game of Group C.

It was rumored the Crown Prince was going to give each player a free Rolls-Royce Phantom as a reward for winning the game.

But that rumor turned out to be just that; a rumor, with the coach dispelling it a short time later.

#8. Which of these iconic 2022 moments was turned into an NFT?

Someone will probably turn Salt Bae’s World Cup moment into an NFT at some point.

BUT no one has yet.

However, the Chris Rock – Will Smith moment was indeed turned into an NFT

#9. The Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato is limited to... ?

The Sterrato is limited to 1,499 units only.


#10. What was the highest-grossing film of 2022?

Top Gun: Maverick was the highest-grossing film of 2022 with $1.4 billion.

Tom Cruise made nearly $100 million from the film.
