P2010 GRAN LUSSO DEBUTS IN THE USA
Italian manufacturer Tecnam introduce a super luxury version of the popular P2010 four-seater powered with Continental CD-170.
Oshokosh, July 19 – The Gran Lusso is a super luxury version with refined Italian leather upholstery, carbon fibre insets, an all-new center FADEC power quadrant that features a Standard FMS to accompany the Garmin NXI touch screen avionics suite. The Gran Lusso features the Continental 170hp Turbo Charged CD-170 Jet/A fuel Power plant by Continental and incorporates improved cabin ergonomics for an unprecedented ultimate luxury flying experience.
Designed by Tecnam “Centro Stile”, the P2010 Gran Lusso is a concentration of precious details and the highest comfort that brings Tecnam to showcase its innate Italian characteristics by combining virtuous craftsmanship, state-of-the-art technology, and sophisticated design. The fashionable and detailed interiors know no rival in the aviation industry, with their unique, detailed trimmings and stylish color finishes.
The Gran Lusso includes, as Standard, the most wanted optional equipment to make your flight a pure joy.
- New layout of cockpit panel
- AFCS Control Unit GMC 707 autopilot with ESP

- Shining aluminum Trim control wheel in the central console

Burning just 5.2 US Gal per hour (less than 20 litres), with roomy, Italian-style shaped cabin interiors, and taking advantage of the high-wing configuration with 3 access doors plus another dedicated one for the baggage compartment, is no longer a dream. And it is no longer a dream to cover 1,000nm with the full tank capacity of 63 US Gal (240 litres).
The P2010 TDI Gran Lusso is added to the P2010 range: with three different powerplants, and three different fuel capabilities: automotive unleaded (approved on 180hp version), Avgas on the most powerful 215hp variant and, Jet/diesel.
The P2010 Gran Lusso is a concentrate of state-of-the-art technologies, where Tecnam’s capabilities to manage both metal and composite technologies has shaped a unique solution in terms of efficiency, load-carrying structure and unique Italian style: fuselage and vertical fin entirely made of pre-peg carbon fibers provide the best use of space, while wings, horizontal tail and rudder, as well as all the load-carrying structures, are built with 70 years’ experience of light alloy structures.
Flight safety is self-explanatory in the latest certification requirements followed by the electrically adjustable height, 26G-capable crashworthy seats, while flying experience is the ultimate with the Garmin® G1000® NXi glass cockpit and GFCTM 707 autopilot, entirely integrated and tuned around the ContinentalTM CD-170, full FADEC and single-lever controlled engine.
Continental’s Jet/diesel powered 170 HP engine offers ease of flying with its single lever, coupled with electronic engine monitoring and redundant safety features. The CD-170 is the newest design and also the highest-horsepower engine in the CD-100 series family, proven with more than 6,000 engines delivered and over 7.1 million service flight hours.
“Flying is a private experience. With the Gran Lusso this experience becomes even more intimate, where you can find all the level of luxury you deserve, and express the owner personality at its best” says Tecnam’s USA Sales Director, David Copeland.
