The BMW Series 5 Gran Turismo Trussardi was inspired by the color of leather and gloves. The car, co-designed by BMW Italia and Trussardi, celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Italian fashion house that has always sought different ways to express and represent its values. Elegantly understated, the Trussardi car inaugurates a new type of automobile: a Sports Activity Vehicle combined with a classic Gran Turismo car. It is extremely elegant, spacious, and full of details that reveal the great attention paid to every phase of its design and production. Let's discover it together.
Heraldic Brown: an exclusive color
The sleek lines of the BMW Series 5 Gran Turismo Trussardi are emphasized by a special color: the exclusive Heraldic Brown, a warm brown with a metallic finish. The three-layer coating allows the chassis to change color according to the light, which enhances every detail inside and out.
The fashion house emblem is displayed on the sides of the car near the turn signals. The 20 inch double spoke alloy hubcaps were specially burnished to match the unique color of the car. Each detail reveals the style of this unique automobile.

Trussardi and BMW: inspiration from the past
When the Trussardi leather workshop was established in Bergamo in 1911, leather gloves were its most refined product. The glove was ultra-soft and had a ribbing pattern. Today the Trussardi car and its unique interior renew the artisan values of the fashion house. The Trussardi greyhound has been turned into a 245 hp six-cylinder engine.
In its elegant and exclusive interior, the driver and passengers will find the Trussardi greyhound heat-embossed on the headrests and seats covered in special leather in the shade of Leather Glove Beige, with contrasting stitching accentuating the ribbed motif used in the old Trussardi glove factory.
