BMW has released a trio of teaser images for its new Gran Lusso Coupe concept, bound for this month's Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este in Italy.

Designed together with legendary styling house Pininfarina, the Gran Lusso looks to build on idea of BMW's big 6 Series Coupe, while channeling the legend of the 8 Series.

The new show-car will mark the third of BMW's most recent collaborative projects, following the unveiling of its Zagato-styled Z4 Coupe and Roadster.

Details about the new concept remain a secret for now, although BMW isn't too shy to disclose the big coupe's powerplant: a hefty V12 engine.

Specifics of the engine haven't been revealed, although we can likely expect a version of the 6.0 litre 400kW mill available with the big 7 Series limo.

The source of the concept's platform has also not been revealed, although BMW promises a noteably long wheelbase.

The wheelbase of the 7 Series ranges from an already long 3070 to 3210mm, but its even more upmarket platform cousin, the Rolls-Royce Ghost, boasts wheelbases between 3295 and 3450mm.

The Ghost also has a Wraith Coupe sibling, riding on a 3112mm wheelbase, and it could be this ready-to-go architecture that will underpin the Gran Lusso.

But will this new concept lead to a return of the 8 Series, to sit alongside the big 7 Series limo? BMW has yet to confirm any production plans for its Zagato concepts, but a big new coupe would make one hell of a halo model.
