BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupé Officially Revealed

First teased last week, the BMW Gran Lusso Coupé concept has been officially revealed at the 2013 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este.

The luxury coupé is a joint effort between BMW and Pininfarina. It features a long wheelbase, a stretched nose and a sloping roofline, reminiscent of the late BMW 8-Series. The front end is characterized by a powerful double kidney grille with chrome vertical braces. The large coupe rides on exclusive 21-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, the concept’s luxurious cabin boasts a full Tobacco Brown leather upholstery with kauri wood trim and black chrome accent. There is also a virgin Italian wool headliner with a distinctive “Principe di Galles” pattern. LED ambient lighting is employed for the interior.

Underneath the elongated bonnet is a V12 engine that is likely to be pinched from the BMW 760. It develops 400 kW (544 Hp) and 750 Nm of torque.

Although designed as a one-off model for now, the BMW Gran Lusso Coupé could point at a future 7-Series coupe or a revival of the 8-Series.
