This Is The Unobtainable BMW Zagato

By | May 25, 2012

BMW Zagato Coupe

Zagato is an Italian car design firm known for producing near mythical vehicles that are not only rare, but beautiful and incredibly expensive. Before today, they most recently turned heads with the Aston Martin V12 Zagato, which is arguably one of the best looking cars ever made.

Now, Zagato is at it again with a completely redesigned BMW Z4 they’re calling the Zagato Coupe and it is amazing. The busy yet elegant aluminum body is completely 100% handbuild to make it stick out even among the most exotic of vehicles, and there are enough Z Zagato badges on the thing to make the M division at BMW feel like stepping up their badge placement game. Under the super freaking cool double bubble roof is a custom designed yet still totally BMW interior that, in Zagato’s words, “invites the keen driver to take the helm.” Helm…? If you’ve ever taken the helm of a car, let us know how it was in the comments below.

No word on if the Zagato Coupe will also come with any upgrades where it counts under the long bonnet, nor on price. But considering the car was unveiled at the annual Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este super-ritz auto show in Lake Como, Italy, if your price range doesn’t include the words “blank check” then don’t ask.

What do you think about the Zagato Coupe?

Ugly. This whole shooting brake styling needs to end.

Actually, Kevin, I totaly agree with you (see my rants on the Ferrari FF for example). I HATE the shooting brake styling that’s becoming popular. This is the one car I’ve seen do it well though, although it’s not the first M Roadster to use the shooting brake style: http://www.ssip.net/upload/bmw-m-coupe-side-1_120.jpg

Not sure where you are getting Shooting Brake from this car… The Z4 Coupe is indeed a coupe and not the ugly shooting brake of the M Coupe. This looks very much like the new Viper to me.
