BMW Previews Gran Lusso Concept

BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe concept to debut on May 24 at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este.

BMW traditionally designs its own production and concept cars in-house, but has lately been seeking some outside influence. At last year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este (which the Bavarian automaker incidentally sponsors), BMW revealed a concept based on the Z4 created in partnership with Zagato. And at this year’s Concorso, it will unveil a new concept designed with Pininfarina. Previewed in this set of teaser renderings, the BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe concept.

Powered by a V12 engine – presumably the same 6.0-liter twin-turbo N74B60 unit found in the 760i with 540 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of torque – the concept incorporates a two-door, long-wheelbase coupe design that could preview a new 8 Series. Few details were released along with these teaser images, but we expect the finished product to be unveiled in the run-up to this year's Concorso d'Eleganza on May 24, so watch this space for more.
