BMW and Zagato decided BMW Zagato Roadster official debut at the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
The BMW Zagato Roadster is a drop-top version of the BMW Zagato Coupe, which debuted earlier this year at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy. The roadster version was completed in just six weeks, gets such touches as leather-wrapped roll bars and an unusual gray paint treatment, said to wrap the “car’s body in a cloak of liquid metal.” Said BMW in a statement.
The car features a very cool Rosso Vivace paint that ranges from something close to black all the way to a brilliant red, depending on the light. The bonnet is perfectly continued through to the double-bubble roof as the lines of the body continue on to the rear of the car, design lines signed by Zagato. The rear end has also been designed in a traditional Zagato 2 seater style, while the flanks adopt the classical BMW Roadster lines.
Interior was structured by BMW, while Zagato designed the exclusive concept for the color and materials concept. The horizontal lines in the instrument panel and doors were all fitted by hand and fit perfectly with the exclusive leather trim in a light and dark shade of grey. The instrument panel, doors, and seats received red decorative stitching to match the car’s exterior paint, and the letter “Z” has been embroidered into the seats.
