BMW Previews Grand Lusso Coupé Pininfarina Concept
At this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, BMW and Pininfarina will unveil the result of their first ever collaboration to the global public: the BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupé.
The new design study is the sequel to a new approach introduced at last year’s Concorso in the shape of the BMW Zagato Coupé. In search of opportunities for further development, the BMW Group has consciously sought a creative exchange with other design studios. Thus the close collaboration with the Pininfarina design team has led to a new automotive personality that aims to capture and merge the DNA of both BMW and Pininfarina.
The teaser renderings suggest hallmark BMW proportions – a long wheelbase, stretched bonnet, short overhangs and a set-back greenhouse with a sloping roofline. Enhancing the the side profile are convex taperings that add a further dynamic element. Under the bonnet, the car is to be powered by a V12 engine.
The BMW Gran Lusso Coupé’s interior experience, meanwhile, will revolve around two themes: exclusivity and sportiness.
The new concept is to be revealed in full on 24 May.
