The Coupe version was unveiled at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este back in May, the the Roadster is simply a drop-top version of that car. BMW say that the decision to create the Roadster was taken after the positive remarks the BMW Zagato Roadster attracted. The entire project was realised in just six weeks.
The BMW Zagato Roadster is a ready to drive car, despite the short lead time. It features a low-set kidney grille complete with an intricate Zagato Z-design mesh as well as twin circular headlights, LED light strips called the ‘razorlight’ and a Zagato kidney grille. The A-pillar receives black paint that helps give it a better line, the rear end gets Zagato trademark rollbars, it gets a new rear end complete with exhaust, diffuser and tailights.
Inside, a strip of brown leather wraps around the interior, It extends over the instrument panel, over the door seats and behind the seats, incorporating the roll bars too. The interior is predominently black though with contrasting brown stitches and ‘Z’ embroidery.
