Photo Comparison: Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe vs. BMW Gran Lusso

Interesting | February 12th, 2014 by 12

Is BMW working on a 8 Series model to take on the elegant S-Class Coupe? Could it be based on the Gran Lusso Concept unveiled last year?

Yesterday Mercedes-Benz unveiled their latest model, S-Class Coupe, a two-door luxurious limousine that builds atop the S-Class Coupe Concept unveiled in Frankfurt.

With the high-end coupe, Mercedes-Benz is entering a new niche market and if history is of any indication, others are not far behind. Is BMW working on a 8 Series model to take on the elegant S-Class Coupe? Could it be based on the Gran Lusso Concept unveiled last year?


13 inches longer than a BMW 6 Series Coupe and based on the new S-Class sedan, the S-Class Coupe will appeal to a fine group of customers, with exclusivity and comfort at the highest levels.

Based on the 7 Series platform, BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe was one of the stars at the 2013 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, an event that celebrates some of the most exclusive automobiles in the world. The elegant design lines are the result of a collaboration between BMW and Pininfarina. The knife sharpened LED lights at the front and rear end showcase the sporty side of the car, while the specially designed kidneys are in the typical BMW design with Pininfarina accents.


A BMW competitor to the S-Class Coupe won’t arrive before 2016 when the G11 7 Series hits the market.

We put together a photo comparison to see how the two vehicles would compete against each other:

  • sadman ahmed

    exactly,,nothing beats bmw exterior but the interior is inferior to mercedes in comparison

  • Brandon

    BMW will probably build an 8 series coupe… Then an 8 series convertible… Then an 8 series gran coupe that probably will just be another 7 series… Too many models in the BMW lineup already.

  • mercfan

    The Mercedes is the best car!

  • jason bourne

    Both cars are ugly… Inside and out.

  • Omar

    Beeemerrr baby!! but…the merc interior is more awesome

  • TOP

    Acording to Top Gear, the Gran Lusso, is most a Rival for the Bentley continental.. And the interior, by now is only the current 7 series with accents.. Yet should you read about the materials, since are the most exclusive.. Like the fossilized Wood aging 4000 years old..
