This striking BMW Zagato Coupe has been revealed at the prestigious Villa d’Este Concours in Italy.

The hand-built one-off concept car features a number of the Italian coachbuilder’s hallmark design cues, most notably through the glass boot lid at the concept's rear. 

The car’s subtle twin-dome roof is another Zagato signature, last seen on the Aston V12 Zagato, a car that won the Villa d’Este Concours last year; the British model has since gone into production at a cost of £405,000.

Further changes to the standard BMW model include the addition of large cooling ducts on the shapely bonnet, plus redesigned bumpers front and rear and new dual exhaust tips. The alloy wheel designs are also unique.

No technical details have been revealed by BMW yet, but it is possible that the Zagato is based on the 306bhp, 295lb/ft torque BMW Z4 Coupe sDrive35i. Performance figures of that car include a 155mph top speed and a 0-62mph sprint time of 5.1sec.  

At last year’s show, BMW unveiled its extreme open-topped two-seater – the BMW 328 Hommage – which was designed to commemorate the 75th birthday of the BMW 328 racing car. In 2008 the marque also used the event to showcase the M1 Hommage, which celebrated the 30th anniversary of the iconic supercar.

Zagato seems to do a good job of making a reasonably good looking car into far less than that. The Aston V12 Zagato is far less good looking than the standard V12 Vantage and the trend is followed here - Z4 = pretty, this = ugly. Don't think this will win at Villa d'Este... but then miracles can happen, as the Aston V12 Zag won last year.

Yep, your entitled to your opinion, but this aint ugly, it's not jaw droppingly pretty, but it's ok,like a more modern Z4M,plus, even the rear would be good if it were made,everyone would copy it,reminds you of Honda Civics from the 90's, remember the nineties?.........no?

It certainly looks far better than the Aston Martin V12 Zagato. The colour looks darn good too!

Autocar is the best thing that we all need to do and we need to understand something about custom written papers. It will be good and we will see things becoming easy for all of us.
