We first noticed the sleek bimmer at the Concours d’;Eleganza Villa d’;Este with a much-anticipated see of the long term of what could be an 8-series return.

The 2-door coupe concept is mentioned to be a one particular-off but is based on a modified BMW 7-series rear-drive chassis and incorporates the 760i’;s 536-hp turbocharged V12.

“We are really proud of this idea automobile,” said chairman Paolo Pininfarina, “because it expresses at ideal the aesthetic values that always inspired Pininfarina: the purity of the lines, the harmony of kind, and balance. It underlines our expertise as a international designer and producer of large-high quality exclusive automobiles realized thanks to distinctive craft capabilities gained over 80 years of exercise.

In addition to the BMW, Pininfarina also teamed up with Ferrari to make the California T.

Below the hood is an fully new turbocharged V8 that claims to make significantly less emissions and fuel consumption.

While the exterior type changes up a bit, the general dimensions of the T do not deviate from those of the earlier California model.
