In this elaborately created one-off, renowned car manufacturers BMW and pininfarina have collaborated to create ‘the BMW pininfarina gran lusso coupé’, which made its debut at the 2013 concorso d’eleganza villa d’este in lago como. representing an exclusive interpretation of a luxurious BMW coupé as seen through the eyes of pininfarina, the V12 concept combines generous surfaces and contours to highlight hallmark bimmer proportions – a long wheelbase, stretched bonnet, short overhangs – which are then refined with italian finesse and flair.
”The appeal of this collaboration with pininfarina is that you get another, very different and special angle on facets like luxury and exclusivity,’ says karim habib, head of bmw design. ‘the italian company, after all, has always been a byword for these criteria in particular, demonstrating time and again its keen sensitivity and exceptional finesse in these areas. in pininfarina we have found the ideal partner to lend shape to this vehicle concept.”
