BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupé Unveiled

BMW and Pininfarina have gotten together to create a beautiful one-off concept car that was unveiled on Friday: the BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupé.

“The result of this cooperative venture is far greater than the sum of its parts,” says Fabio Filippini, Head of Design at Pininfarina. “When two such tradition-rich and experienced brands join forces to turn a vision into reality, something utterly new and exciting emerges.”

This car may be partly representative of what we might see if BMW goes through with the revival of the 8 Series.

The four-seat coupe was put together for display at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2013. Under the hood is a V12, though specs were not released, as the design is the main reason for this one off.

Typical BMW kidney grilles are found on the front end, while long flowing lines and taut surfaces give the rest of the car a classy upscale look and feel. Massive 21-inch wheels compliment the swoopy curves and gorgeous proportions of this latest Pininfarina design.

Inside, the car features high-grade leather from the Foglizzo leather factory in black and a light shade of Tobacco Brown, along with kauri wood which is more than 48,000 years old. The kauri wood is native to New Zealand, and is one of the rarest timbers in the world.
