There are no complete images of the Grand Lusso Coupé yet, but from the renderings that BMW has released, the car clearly has a long, swooping body. Pininfarina led the design team with BMW collaborating. The interior has been recovered in high-end leather and luxury finishes. Also, BMW says that it has fitted a V12 engine under the hood. 

Like the Zagato Coupe, the Gran Lusso Coupé will be a one-off car with no intention to put it in production. Although, BMW did create a Zagato RoadsterZagato RoadsterBMW Zagato RoadsterGermany, 2012 > present24 photos
later last year. This may not be the last that we have seen of the Gran Lusso Coupé.

BMW says that it has actively been searching for coachbuilders and designers to work with. Do not be surprised if we see another car like this next year from another famous coachbuilder.
