BMW Gran Lusso design explained in Pininfarina videoThu, 30 May 2013 00:00:00 -0700
The two-door BMW Gran Lusso took center stage at the 2013 Villa d'Este Concourso d'Eleganza in Italy last weekend. The Pininfarina-designed, V12-equipped coupe could herald the return of the company's mighty 8-series Bimmers that rolled the streets in the 1990s. Pininfarina posted two videos of the BMW Gran Lusso on its YouTube channel on Wednesday.
The first video is just a selection of beauty shots of the new coupe, while the second features designers Fabio Filippini and Karim Habib talking about the Gran Lusso, and what it means to BMW and Pininfarina.
As a quick refresher, the Gran Lusso is based on the BMW 7-series, using the 536-hp V12 from the 760i. The car was described as a one-off, yet BMW says it would allow the four-seat coupe to go into production without many changes. Check out the rest of our Gran Lusso coverage here.
