What you’re looking at here are the first teasers of the new BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe, which will make its debut at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2013. Many reports suggest that this is our first look at a pure successor for the BMW 8 Series.

The concept is a joint project between BMW and Pininfarina.

“The BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupé is the sequel to a new approach introduced at last year’s Concorso in the shape of the BMW Zagato Coupé,” BMW said in a statement. “Always in search of opportunities for further development, the BMW Group consciously pursues creative exchange with other design studios. It enables two design approaches to merge into a new and exciting initiative that encourages fresh creative impulses. Thus the close collaboration with the Pininfarina design team has led to a new automotive personality brimming with character and ready to join the high-end luxury class: typically BMW and bearing the refined imprint of Pininfarina. The BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupé adds a new dimension to the BMW claim to elegance and exclusivity.”

While no official technical specs have been made available BMW says that under the hood is a V12 engine.

We’ll have more details in a couple of weeks.
