BMW has recently unveiled the Zagato Roadster during the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
The BMW Zagato Roadster has been teased a couple of times before being finally presented to the public in a world premiere during the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and, according to the two companies, it took only six weeks to develop the whole car. When is compared to the Coupe version of the model, which was revealed in Italy earlier this year, the BMW Zagato Roadster is adopting a lower-slung rear end and an extra line, along with a soft top, a pair of roll bars and a very attractive grey paint finish.
“Our success in finishing the car in such a short space of time shows what is possible when two successful companies pool their resources” says Andrea Zagato. “BMW is a high-achieving carmaker boasting a vast well of knowledge and technical capability in this area. When you combine that with our expertise in the creation of micro-series cars and our streamlined production processes, everything is in place to produce a beautiful model like the BMW Zagato Roadster in double-quick time.”
BMW or Zagato didn’t announced their plans to put the Zagato Roadster or the Zagato Coupe into production. Besides the BMW Zagato Roadster, the German based automaker has also brought the Alpina B7, the 6-Series Gran Coupe and the 2013 7-Series to the Pebble Beach, along with some classic vehicles.
