    2013 BMW Zagato Coupé

    The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este will see the release of a collaboration between Milanese coachbuilder Zagato and German car builder BMW. The BMW Zagato Coupé is the name of the new one-off model.

    The body of the BMW Zagato Coupé is based on the current BMW Z4 series and has been built entirely by hand. The Zagato experts spent many hours crafting the aluminium sheet metal by hand and moulding it to give the car its unique form. The design features an extremely long bonnet, greenhouse set well back, double bubble roof and Kamm Tail. At the front there are twin circular headlights, a kidney-shaped radiator grille and BMW logo.

    The stand-out detail here is the use of countless small matt Zagato “z” letters to make up the kidney grille. Viewed from the front, the “z” letters appear to be floating within the kidneys. Close-up, it is clear that they are set against a collection of other dark-coloured “z”s positioned into octagons. Gleaming chrome “z”s are used only on the visible side of the octagons.

    Another characteristic Zagato design theme is the specially designed “criss-cross” transition from the side windows into the rear window. The 19 inch light-alloy wheels in classically sporty five-spoke design have a hint of propeller about them and look back at the history of both brands. A very special highlight of the BMW Zagato Coupé is its paintwork. The exclusive exterior paint finish Rosso Vivace offers an expressive shade of red.

    There is no technical information on the powertrain or suspension, this new one-off focusses only on the design and collaboration between the Germans and the Italians.

    The Z4 M Coupe is one of the best looking cars ever made. This is a big want.

    Ditto. They kinda of slipped under the radar a little when new, but I really think they'll be highly sought after in future years. Especially in blue.

    ...it looks like they got the classic Zagato shape applied to a lot of Aston's in the past (and maybe even an Alfa) and then slapped a BMW nose up front. Imagine the car starting from that line right after the headlights.

    Zagato always either mess up a design to the point of "kill it with fire" or like in this case make something really stunning.

    Want. A lot.

    I don't think the front bumper is big enough, it should look like Julia Roberts mouth.

    The back has a original Viper GTS vibe to it IMO. The front look like it smelled something horrible... not sure if want.

    I much prefer the Z4, this one looks poorly proportioned to me. It looks rear-heavy (designwise).

    I might be the only one here, but I don't like it. To me, it looks like a slightly uglier version of the already ugly Ferrari FF.

    ... and now the unveiling of the Zagato Z4 convertible... with a soft-top (apparently).

    I think the current Z4 is pretty. I think this one is even prettier. Come on, BMW. Get Zagato's permission to use this as the current Z4's mid-cycle "freshening"

    That thing is way better than the coupe, simply because it can't have the fucking ugly rearend . Still I'm not sure I like this more than the normal Z4, which is pretty awesome .
