Videos: BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe at 2013 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este
Fabio Filippini of Pininfarina and Karim Habib, Head of BMW design, present the BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe. The high-end Gran Coupe made its debut at the 2013 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, an event that celebrates some of the most exclusive automobiles in the world.
Based on the 7 Series platform, BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe has the typical long wheelbase, stretched bonnet and set-back greenhouse. Other iconic BMW elements like the double- kidney grille and twin circular LED headlights are present as well.
The taillights maintain the typical BMW L-shape design that wrap tightly around the rear quarter. A particular highlight is their open design, allowing air to flow through them.
BMW says that a V12 engine is found under the hood, but no further details were given at this time.
Here is the video where the two designers explain the car:
