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.
