BMW will bring its Gran Coupe concept to life, its first foray into the "four door coupe" segment currently en vouge with German manufacturers.
BMW has yet to decide on a name for the car ("…we don't know what to call it yet," said Adrian van Hooydonk, BMW's head of design), but the revival of the famous 8-series nameplate is a possibility. The concept indicates that the design of the Gran Coupe is almost finalized, and the dashing looks will carry an appropriately premium price tag as well.
While BMW has made a big effort to promote their MegaCity electric car project, the Gran Coupe represents a 180 degree shift away from a small, eco-friendly urban vehicle, as BMW looks for a flagship to join the 6-series two-door coupe and the 7-series luxury sedan.
