Today, at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, BMW announced their partnership with the time-honoured Milanese coachbuilder Zagato. The BMW Zagato Coupé fuses the design DNA of the two companies into a fresh and distinctive whole: a one-off model that is the product of many hours of hand-craftsmanship. Details such as the extremely long bonnet, double bubble roof and Kamm Tail are visually striking Zagato hallmarks that gives the car a distinctive and instantly recognizable personality.

Below the bonnet we see Zagato‘s take on the BMW grille, where countless Zagato “z” letters to make up the kidney grille. The exclusive exterior paint finish, Rosso Vivace, is an expressive shade of red – depending on how the light hits the body, the color spectrum ranges from something close to black all the way to a brilliant red. Sealing the deal are two exclusive Zagato inspired accessories: a hat bag and a travel bag.
