BMW has unveiled the outcome of its first collaboration with Pininfarina and the result is the Gran Lusso Coupe which has been designed as a luxury coupe that exhibits top quality craftsmanship.
Dynamic Exterior Styling for Gran Lusso CoupeAs part of the front-end design, the BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe features the trademark BMW kidney grille as well as road focussed headlights with a twin circular look, while distinctive Pininfarina elements have been interpreted with Italian elegance.
Above the kidney grille the bonnet stretches across the front of the car, with subtle contours appearing from the BMW emblem and giving the bonnet a dynamic elegance. The Gran Lusso Coupe's convex features on the side add visual elegance and give the body a taut, athletic shape.
The model is also equipped with slender taillights, matte aluminium trim and exclusive 21-inch alloy wheels whith five spoke rims.
Sophisticated Interior offers class and eleganceThe interior of the BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe is fused with modern elegance and authoritative dynamics displayed on the exterior. The four-seat coupe is styled with Tobacco Brown leather upholstery, kauri wood trim and black chrome accents. There's also a sport steering wheel, LED ambient lighting and a virgin Italian wool headliner with a distinctive “Principe di Galles” pattern.
The soft deep-pile carpet in dark grey adds a subtle sense of wellbeing, while the freestanding B-pillars create a homogeneous glazed area and frameless doors appear light when viewed from the outside.
"The result of this cooperative venture is far greater than the sum of its parts," said 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. From start to finish, this project was defined by a mutual respect for the identity of the other company."
