Love the front and side ..... Not the back could make the rear classier !

I like the design overall. I agree with other posts the rear seems a little out of proportion. The "Z's" on the seats reminding me of Nissan "Z". I do love the color. Overall beautiful!

you guys have no vision or creativity what so ever... most of you are bashing this car because how a piece of glass looks in the rear, yet none of you can create a car with half the precision and talent these people have. Use your brain, If you just paint the glass in the back the same color of the car it looks a lot better.

I'm not a fan of the rear-end either, but I think it's important to point out that this is not a BMW design, it's a Zagato one.

Overall I think it looks great and very Zagato. All the hints are there: Upswept window line, double-bubble roof, rear window in a U shape etc. That's what you'd expect Zagato to do. Here, have a look at this.

The point I'm trying to make is this is a kind of a coachbuilt design (kind of like how you could get the same Ferrari dressed by Pininfarina or Bertone). Zagato took the BMW and imprinted their own design philosophy on it, just like they've been doing for years and years.

Just accept this for what it is is what I'm saying. It's a BMW Z4 by Zagato. It's not an official BMW lineup, it's not a new BMW lineup, it's nothing but a styling redesign by an Italian design house.

this has not been bumped enough yet. Perfect design. I know the point of the Zagato coupe is to shock, but a car like this rendering is so Z8, Z9 badge worthy

Holy crap that is good. I absolutely despise the front facia/hood line on the F3x but it looks absolutely perfect on a 2 seater coupe. Good work man. Very good. Add the M6 (or Z4) roof and you're good to go.

I laughed out loud when Jeremy Clarkson said the Audi R8 V10 just "didn't look right"... and then got in and quickly pronounced it was the finest all-round supercar he had ever driven. Of course, it's all about performance and the driving experience.

A few cars are both pretty/handsome and have super performance too. IMHO (disagree if you will) the Gallardo covers this nicely. My buddy's 458 Italia comes close. The Italians, and the Germans who hire Italians, seem to get it right.
