Bmw unveiled the impressive Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe, a concept car that hints at a possible 8-Series. Unveiled in Italy at the Villa d’Este Concours d’Elegance, the new Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe is a four-seater powered by a 6.0-liter V12 engine delivering 537 bhp, same found on the 760i. Power is delivered to the rear wheels.

Regarding the design, the Gran Lusso Coupe is quite impressive and comes with a swept-back silhouette that features a long bonnet, shallow glasshouse and a reinterpretation of the well-known Bmw front grille. Although it is described as a one-off, the Gran Lusso Coupe could easily be taken into production with little changes.

The same design theme is continued at the interior where Bmw and Pininfarina used only high-quality materials such as black and tobacco brown leather upholstery from Italian company Foglizzo, but also the trims sourced from kauri wood as well as black chrome.

“The roof liner of finest Italian virgin wool features the striking “Principe di Galles” pattern. This grey plaid strikes a bold contrast to the traditional materials used for the doors and dashboard. The brown leather seats also pick up on the pattern in their all-round piping. Allowing extra light into the interior is an oblong aperture in the roof liner which is additionally illuminated by white LEDs. In the footwell areas, a soft deep-pile carpet in dark grey adds to a subtle sense of wellbeing. Another interior detail are the freestanding B-pillars, whose elegant design when viewed from the outside creates a homogeneous glazed area and frameless doors that appear very light.” said the press release.
