Do not want. As an art piece I can understand, it has interesting lines that can make you look at it for quite a while. But at the end of that I'd rather have not seen it.

Some people like 22" chrome wheels and some people like this, to each their own I guess.

Apparently going to have the BMW z4 335bhp turbocharged 6-cylinder in it. If that's true, should of put a v8 in it.

If they had put the S65 engine in that thing, I imagine more people would like it.

The BMW Zagato Roadster and Coupe use an enhanced N55 with power at 400 bhp. No need for a V8 as the six is just as powerful.

I was somewhat wondering the same thing, although with it being positioned next to a corporate jet, I suspect it's going to be priced in Rolls Royce strata.

I like the liquid metal paint...somewhere between the stuff the industry calls silver and chrome.

The grille is pretty funny. BMW should offer that as an option for Zs.
I think it looks pretty good - IF the vents on the sides and hood are mesh and not solid. If they're solid then they look gimmicky since they draw so much attention to themselves. From overhead the design is very flowing.

Alert! Please do not read if you are easily offended by obvious sexist comments....

Good looking roadster but as a guy I prefer the coupe. The roadster looks like a chick car but then again most modern roadsters since the intro of the miata look like chick cars. That's not to say they are not a lot of fun to drive . Case in point; I have a girlfriend that looks smokin' hot with the top down while cramin' the cogs in her six speed Honda S2000 (in killer heels no less). I'd rather ride with her than drive her somewhere in that car.. And that is saying a lot from a guy who only likes the driver's seat in anything with an engine!

So I'd say they have the marketing campaign correct showing the guy in the coupe and the hottie in the roadster. Makes me wonder if the marketing guys actually feel the same way and the result is this photo shoot?

I like the Z4 allot. I believe is a stunning good looking car.
This is some sort of cheap ''Gucci like'' version.
I dislike it. Zagato maybe should they design something else than a model based on changing the Z4.

Silly nonsense.
It takes a man to pull things off.
I'd never live life without a ragtop in my stable.

I don't get it?

Will this go into production? Can we buy it in the next few years?

Otherwise what's the point?

You have a very good question here.

I think it is some sort of exercise to show the possibilities of what can be done outside the hands of BMW design works.

It's one of those cars that look really nice but you kind of get sick of because it's so busy
