It’s only been three months since the BMW Zagato Coupe was unveiled, and since then it’s made its way across the Internet and into everyone’s conversation. The 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is the perfect setting for a surprise release for any automaker, and due to the overwhelmingly positive response from the BMW Zagato Coupe, the two brands took their collaboration one step further to release another model; the Roadster.

Something of this caliber would be expected to take at least a year in the design phase, but as a glimpse of what’s possible when two great companies collide, the Zagato Roadster was created in just six weeks.

“Our success in finishing the car in such a short space of time shows what is possible when two successful companies pool their resources” says Zagato. “BMW is a high-achieving carmaker boasting a vast well of knowledge and technical capability in this area. When you combine that with our expertise in the creation of micro-series cars and our streamlined production processes, everything is in place to produce a beautiful model like the BMW Zagato Roadster in double-quick time”.

Yes, it’s impressive. And just look at it—it’s gorgeous. Keep some tissues nearby to absorb the drool. Hopefully these aren’t just one-offs!
