Report: BMW Gran Coupe Will See Production
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.
