BMW and Milan-based Zagato have teamed for this one-off beauty which is set to presented at this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. Under the hood, you’ll find a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 that dishes out an impressive 400 ponies. It’s based on the current Z4 but features a more aggressive appeal and Zagato’s signature trademark double-bubble roof as well as a sliced-off rear. Other fine details include deep grooved side vents, the Z-filled grille, and an oversized Z found in silver below the side vents. There have been quiet rumblings of the possibility of the BMW Zagato Coupe being available in a limited run, but nothing’s been etched just yet.

Italian supercar maker Lamborghini has taken the covers off their latest concept vehicle — Urus — a Spanish breed of bull that sits somewhere between fighting size and hauling size. Though the name hit the rumor mill quite some time ago when the Estoque four door was unveiled, looks like the name is being reserved for Lambo’s SUV of the future. You won’t see it on the streets until 2005 but we’re expecting power and Lamborghini to be put a lid on the carbon emissions in the process. 50 percent of customer deliveries are aimed at the United States so expect this to be one competitive SUV, one that’s owned by some pretty impressive contention — the Range Rover Sport, Porsche Cayenne, as well as the BMW X6 M.
