BMW Zagato Coupe, it does sound Italian and it is kind of Italian. Zagato is an Italian design consultancy company and worked with many car brands for long decades. Recently, BMW and Zagato designed a new car BMW Zagato Coupe.
BMW Zagato Coupe is based on a BMW Z4 and all exterior design is hand-crafted aluminium. The rear-end panel is totally transparent and two individual exhaust are positioned outer edges of the Zagato Coupe. And the most distinctive part is the Z shaped front radiator grill!
The exterior paint start from black, a shimmering layer of metallic silver, and then six ultra-thin layers of specially design red colour is applied. And it is called, Rosso Vivace.
As you can understand from the short description of BMW Zagato Coupe, it is not an ordinary BMW. So, it likely to be powered by an upgraded engine. Unfortunately, BMW did not release any information to Zagato Coupe’s engine specifications. I assume that, it will be an upgraded 3-lt petrol engine. And also, I am expecting a significant weight loss after using hand-crafted aluminium.
Lastly, I noticed that BMW Zagato Coupe have some inspirational parts from BMW’s concept car GINA from 2008!
