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.
