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.
There have been some amazing unveilings this weekend at the Villa D’Este Concours, including the Aston Martin V12 Zagato. This celebrates the 50th anniversary of the DB4GT Zagato and resurrects collaborative efforts between Aston Martin and the Italian coach-maker. Aesthetically, the car’s stunning with its distinct tail and Zagato’s signature “double bubble” roof, LED lighting and a muscular flank.
Under the hood, Aston’s decided to go with a 6.0 liter V12 engine that delivers 510-hp and a maximum torque of 420 lb-ft. A six-speed automated manual gearbox with auto shift manual/select shift manual is fitted to take this beauty as well. No word on production yet but from the way this car’s been received thus far, we might be seeing this car on the roads sooner than later.
