BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe

Pininfarina is a leading Italian design house whose history dates back to 1930. Experience, creativity and innovation are the values that have always characterized Pininfarina’s business. BMW is already a classic of the auto field, a car manufacturer that creates some of the highest quality cars in the world. So, BMW and Pininfarina are two of the most tradition swathed names in the automobile world. Each is a byword for cutting edge technology, style, dynamics and aesthetics. The one genius action they could do was to shake hands and create together the BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe. This amazing vehicle has just been introduced at 2013 d'Eleganza Villa d'Este.


The BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe could very well form the basis of a new 8 Series Coupe that would sit at the top of the range. The Gran Lusso already has several BMW styling elements, such as a stretched-out bonnet, double-kidney grille and the Hofmeister kink in the rear window line. It shows an elegant sloping roofline and packs front fender vents. At the back it is equipped with slender taillights. The luxurious BMW rides on a set of 21 inch alloy wheels. The melding of sportiness, exclusivity and comfort makes for a unique interior experience, with a special colour concept, choice materials and geometrical details in the doors, centre console and dashboard binnacle. The finest leather and kauri wood aged more than 48,000 years offer a unique cabin of the BMW. The work of art also contains LED ambient lightning, sport steering wheel and a virgin Italian wool headliner with a "Principe di Galles" pattern.


The BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe is powered by a V12 engine whose configuration is unknown, but most probably it is the 6.0-liter from the 760Li producing 544 HP (400 kW). The BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe is a one-off and it illustrates the exclusive interpretation of a luxurious BMW Coupe as seen through the eyes of Pininfarina. And what the eyes have imagined, the brains and the hands made possible. The vehicle is a true medicine for the souls of all car admirers.
