Typically when a fashion house and an automaker team up on a collaborative effort, the result comes in the form of a premium hatchback. The Fiat 500 by Gucci
unveiled recently in Geneva serves as one example, the Diesel edition
that preceded it, another. Yves St Laurent
have each applied their talents to the Citröen DS3
, and countless designers have created special edition Minis
for the annual Life Ball
The latest, however, comes in a decidedly larger form. And given the Italian roots of the designer in question, it should come as no surprise that they've turned to a Gran Turismo - the BMW 5 Series GT
, to be specific - for this special edition.
Celebrating the centennial of Italian fashion house Trussardi, this special 5GT is being released by BMW
's Italian subsidiary. It's distinguished by such special touches as a unique metallic brown paint job with matte gray trim replacing much of the brightwork, 20-inch split-spoke alloys, an interior decked out in special beige glove leather with contrasting stitching, and of course, the requisite Trussardi logos abound.
If your Italian is up to snuff you can read all about it in the press release after the jump
, but the gallery of high-resolution images below needs no translation. Thanks for the tip, David!
