BMW Zagato Roadster Debuts At Pebble Beach

The BMW Zagato Roadster debuts three months after the premiere of the BMW Zagato Coupé, a collaboration between BMW and Italian coach builder Zagato, founded in 1919 by Ugo Zagato who learned his trade in aviation, where aerodynamics and lightweight construction play a central role. Zagato became a body construction partner to Alfa Romeo and today, Andrea Zagato and Marella Rivolta-Zagato are the third generation running the company which describes itself as a design studio combining the emotion and hand-craftsmanship of body construction with the precision of state-of-the-art technology. Because this is a piece of art, there were no performance specs to be found but being a BMW one can only expect that this could be the ultimate of ultimate driving machines.
