BMW is hinting at a possible future super-luxury model to sit atop its range. It has revealed a stunning looking concept called the Gran Lusso Coupe at the Vila D’Este concours competition in Italy.

The car, designed by legendary Italian styling house Pininfarina, could preview a possible 8 Series coupe. Although BMW owns Rolls-Royce, the company is known to be keen to expand its range upwards.

Even if that never comes to pass, the Gran Lusso’s super-shapr shark-nose styling certainly seems to point the way forwards for BMW design, and that has to be very good news indeed.
