BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe Concept

The German car maker and Italian design studio come together to create what  could well be the ultimate GT car. The BMW  Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupé combines all of the engineering know-how and  driver-focused technology that has made BMW the company it is today with the design excellence that  has made Pininfarina Ferrari’s designer of choice for over 50 years.

A long wheelbase two-door, four-seat coupe with a low roofline and a huge V12  engine, the Gran Lusso manages to retain all of the physical design cues and  indicators of the current BMW range while at the same time offering something  entirely new — a vehicle that could conceivably compete head to head with a  Bentley Continental GT or Porsche Panamera in terms of comfort, performance and  looks.

No performance figures have been released regarding the engine’s output or  top speed, but the way that the controls ‘wrap’ around the driver’s seat  suggests that if the car did go into production, it would be more than a little  sprightly.

As well as a driver-focused console, the cabin benefits from the best wood,  leather and wool that money can buy — for example, the use of 48,000-year-old  Kauri wood, which is sourced from fossilized swamps in New Zealand and which can  be cut and polished like fresh timber.

Its natural grain has an iridescent quality, meaning that the wood appears to  change color as light hits it at different angles. The entire cabin is finished  from a single piece of Kauri wood to ensure the grain, grade and color are a  prefect match.

Added to the fossilized wood is Foglizzo leather in tobacco and black  adorning the four seats and an embroidered roof liner of the finest virgin  Italian wool.
