Another BMW Concept Car Gets Pininfarina Touches

BMW Gran Lusso

BMW and Pininfarina have teamed up again to produce a predecessor for the Zagato coupe, dubbed the BMW Gran Lusso. The teaser photos give little away, though it appears to be an aggressive and rather elongated luxury coupe. The official unveil of the latest collaboration between the famous design house and BMW will be at the 2013 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este.

The teaser photos show badging that spills a V12 powerplant, which is fairly intense for a BMW. While it looks sporty, there are also elegant touches by Pininfarina that depict its high-performance profile through a stretched hood and long wheelbase.

BMW Loaner Program Poised to Reduce Range Anxiety

BMW is taking a proactive approach to reducing range anxiety for buyers of its i models with a new loaner program.

2016 BMW M8

BMW has announced intentions to unleash a new supercar in a few years. Check out renderings of the 2016 BMW M8 (name and year subject to change, of course)! The brand wants to create a supercar to celebrate its excitement for its upcoming centenary celebrations. Turning 100 years old is a big deal, thus it requires a vehicle that will switch gears from the norm and turn heads!

The next-gen M8 was previously thought to be an M1, though new details suggest that BMW will place an 8 on it. This is a huge hint that they will load it up with carbon fiber like the BMW i8, along with an impressive amount of muscle. The differences between the i8 and M8 will be clear, as the i8 is a hybrid and the M8 will boast a standard twin-turbocharged V8 engine ripping out 600 stallions. read more
