BMW Zagato collaboration with Aston Martin and Zagato V12 comes with a very impressive supercar. But this year, the Italian design company changed direction and worked with BMW to provide Coupe Zagato equally fabulous.
While BMW's design ethos is perhaps best known for aggressive surface-fire language, takes a decidedly different approach Concorso d'Eleganza at Villa d'Este this weekend when it launched Coupé Zagato concept.
Summing must be based on the current Z4, Coupé Zagato was coachbuilt by famous design studio Milan to Kamm-tailed swoopy prototype you see here. Word on the shores of Lake Italy is that, along with a new form, BMW has also increased its output to 400 horsepower coupe - possibly from the 3.0-liter twin-turbo straight six that produces 340 horsepower.
BMW Coupe Zagato combines design cues from both companies and have been entirely hand built. You will see that very long hood is definitely an element of the BMW, but the radiator grille and headlights have certainly received treatment Zagato. This car has a very cool cat Rosso Vivace ranging from something close to brilliant red to black depending on the light
Viewed from the front, the new Zagato Coupe is definitely a stunning interpretation of the classic BMW look. It has twin circular lamps, grille kidney-shaped radiator, and BMW logo, and a pair of air intakes used to cool the machine down. BMW radiator grille is traditional, however, have received treatment Zagato. Frame kidney matte Buckmister inspired by Fuller's geodesic structure and being that it is created by Zagato, it gets a "Z" letter to the kidney grille.
Perfect hood continued to double-bubble roof as the body lines continue toward the back of the car, the design lines signed by Zagato. The back also has been designed in a traditional style 2 seater Zagato, while adopting the hip classic lines BMW Roadster.
Side air vents mimic the shape of the intake hood and extend dynamic agenda for the sides of the car, while developing strong over the rear wheels raised and endorsed by spoiler, inject the entire area with an additional dynamic impetus.
The rear of the car has the clearest evidence of the influence of this Zagato: it was formed almost without a single joint and offering a strong, sturdy and language design goals. A transparent panel is divided into three sections offer a more sporty Coupe Zagato. For even more powerful stance, rear bumper protruding lower feed into the diffuser.
Coupe Zagato is the final element of their impressive 19-inch light-alloy wheels in five-spoke design classic sporty.
Interior BMW Coupe Zagato is structured by BMW, while Zagato designed a concept exclusive to the color and material concepts. The horizontal line on the instrument panel and doors are all fitted with hand and fits perfectly with the exclusive leather trim with light and dark gray. The instrument panel, doors and seats received a red decorative stitching to match the exterior paint cars, and the letter "Z" has been embroidered into the seats.
We have learned that the engine pumps out rather impressive-to-size-400 horsepower, but that's not even the most remarkable.
The most impressive part of this concept Zagato is not power or looks amazing. What drew us in was impressive sound. This beast does not sound like your typical, BMW convenient. This really sounds like a race car race just looking for a little asphalt to lay some rubber vulcanized on. We are now able to share this with your voice, thanks to the Concorso d'Eleganza video of Villa d'Este this fantastic Bimmer judge rolled into the red mat.
