BMW Zagato Roadster Showing Off at Pebble Beach

BMW joined the scores of show offs at Pebble Beach recently, touting the hot new Zagato roadster to eager onlookers! And am I ever so glad they showed up! Designed to be more aggressive and masculine than its predecessors, the show-stopping Zagato is a bold and fresh change of pace for the typically traditional automaker. When some think of the word, the Aston Martin V12 Zagato may come to mind. That is because the design geniuses at Zagato had a hot helping hand in that glorious project as well!
