BMW Showcases the Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe Concept
|   Monday, June 10, 2013
The all new BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe has been revealed and this sleek new machine is a sight for sore eyes. This is being termed as the inspiration for the next generation BMW 8 Series although official word on this rumor is yet to arrive. The vehicle was unveiled at the Ville d'Este Concours last month in Italy and rumors of its beauty has been spreading since.

Technically, this is a one of a kind machine and visually, it is the best looking BMW on road today.
It looks futuristic although it does not resemble an ‘I' series from any quarter. The vehicle is based on contemporary designing mixed with modern looks and is the result of a partnership between Italian designing legend Pininfarina and the in house designing team at BMW.

This vehicle is based on a rear wheel drive platform and is roughly designed around a BMW 7 Series Coupe. This four seated vehicle is however much more than a simple visual treat. The turbo charged 6.0 liter V12 engine in this vehicle displaces 547 BHP and is lifted off the 760i. Minor modifications have been made to the car however to make it eligible for the major transformations.

BMW has enrolled with Zagato recently in order to develop two door coupes. This partnership with Pininfarina is a little bit surprising although such partnerships are often forged. The recently unveiled BMW Z4 Zagato Coupe is a visual treat as well and both companies have their specialties. However, unlike the Z4 Zagato Coupe, the Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe has been designed around a separate chassis and nothing is borrowed from contemporary BMW designs.

The interior of this car features heavy modifications and the Gran Lusso Coupe is a ride of the kings, or so it feels. The key features of this vehicle are its long bonnet, stretched platform, heavily raked wind screen and a well positioned cabin. The interior is well spaced and the controls are well within the grasp of the driver. This vehicle is expected to lend a huge sense of confidence into the heart of the driver although first hand drive experiences cannot be mentioned as the drive tests have not been made possible.

Pininfarina is known for its detailed work and the Gran Lusso Coupe is the best possible example of their craftsmanship. The vehicle is spacious enough for four people and has the necessary space to accommodate a child as well. The center console has been adjusted in a manner which makes it easier for the driver to pay attention.

The use of top notch materials on the Gran Lusso Coupe is not surprising and the price tag may not be either. Use of chrome is high on both interior and exterior of the vehicle and the dash board has a whole new feel thanks to the uplifted interior and chrome setting. This is a concept from every possible angle and a ditto production model is highly unlikely although a slightly modified car could be expected.
