As recently been announced with a brief statement and a few teaser images, BMW and Italian Pininfarina on traditional event Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy officially presented the result of their collaboration, a new concept car BMW Gran Lusso Coupe Pininfarina.
It is interpretation of a luxurious BMW Coupé as seen through the eyes of Pininfarina. Under the hood is a V12, most likely 6.0-liter twin-turbo with 544Hp, behind the twin-kidney grille in matte-sheen aluminum and high-gloss black.
The same aluminum treatment also backs the taillights, the lenses designed to let air flow through them. In inside there is room for four, a cockpit canted toward the driver, Foglizzo leather in black and Tobacco Brown, 48,000-year-old kauri wood from New Zealand, deep pile carpet on the floors, a patterned virgin wool headliner and an “oblong aperture in the roof liner” set off by white LEDs.
BMW Gran Lusso Coupe Pininfarina characterized by the long hood, a set of 21-inch wheels, LED headlights, as well as successful combination of modern elegance and luxury.
In any event, the BMW Gran Lusso Coupe Pininfarina could possibly be an announcement or even base for a new generation of series 8, whose production has ceased in 1999.
