First I went wow, and then I went, hmm, and then I thought the car looks familiar and finally decided to buy one. In Forza or in die cast of course.

The one-off extremely b.e.a.u.-tiful BMW Zagato Coupe blends design characteristics of the two companies, almost perfectly through many hours of hand-craftsmanship. To be unveiled at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d’Este, which is one of the most exclusive events in the world for classic cars where the limited number of vehicles on display are also hand-picked.

"Zagato has always provided its customers with ready-to-drive cars which can be sent into action on the road or race track, and the BMW Zagato Coupé fits the same template," says Dr Andrea Zagato.

"Working with Zagato was a fantastic experience. It was extremely enriching for us to create something with people who share our understanding of good design and passion for cars and that is what makes the car so special," explains Karim Habib, Head of Design BMW Automobiles.

The body is hand built which has an uncanny resemblance to the BMW Z4. The front resembles a BMW; while the rear has a clear Zagato influence. The car sits on tyres fitted with 19-inch alloys with the exterior is finished in a sophisticated paint called Rosso Vivace.
