Not crazy about the front. Side and rear are pretty jaw dropping. Interior is gorgeous also...very cool project.

Smile Well done, an out of the blue project

This project has never been mentioned in this website and all of a sudden, it came out in flesh. But overall, I like it. The rear, though needs refinement, is not bad. I think one major reason that caused so many people here dislike it is the short end. Perhaps they forgot Z4 is short-ended.

The back end reminded me of a Mazda Kabura at first glance.

Interesting fact, but the first Kamm back car was based on, wait for it, the BMW 328i. Zagato was actually late to the party. If Honda took the design from anyone, I'd suspect it was Dr. Kamm, not Zagato.
So it all leads back to BMW

there are so many parts from the z4. the full interior is the same, tail lights inside the CR-V tail are the exact same, and on top of that, its really ugly. i hate the kidneys, i hate that they used spare parts from the Z4 like GM does with their cars, and i hate that it seems that zagato did nothing here. i would have been wowed with completely original designs and no use of spare parts from BMWs most unpopular car next to the 5GT of course. VERY DISAPPOINTED

Replace the grills with the M5-style grills
add a big engine like the new M5 engine
enlarge it a little more

bam you got yourself a R8 competitor.

It's based off the E89 Z4 though.

This was the first thing I thought of when I saw it. It's been done before, and the company that did it is out of business.

What Honda didn't take was the glass in the Kamm area. They did that themselves.

Meh the z4 m coupe has a more complete design language and looks more stunning. It just looks terrible. The design work they did I the z version of the aston martin puts this to shame.

well even if it is, it needs to be more original. i still don't like that they made a new shell for a z4 and gave it another name.
