BMW has unveiled at Pebble Beach this week the Z4-based Zagato Roadster concept.

After releasing a teaser a couple of days ago, BMW has revealed at Pebble Beach the roadster version of the beautiful Z4-based Zagato Coupe. It was developed in only six weeks and it looks pretty much like its fixed-roof counterpart. This can only be a good thing as the Zagato Coupe is a very good looking car, meaning that the Roadster is just as nice with that “three dimensional” (according to Zagato) front end with large air intakes, the black A-pillars, contoured bonnet with integral air scoops and the overall solid stance.

If we compare it to the Coupe, the Roadster version of the Zagato adopts a lower-slung rear end and an extra line that the German carmaker says that it “forges a visual connection” between the car’s sill and the rear apron. This new Zagato features a soft top and has a pair of roll bars for additional protection, while the attractive grey paint finish will change its hue to light silver depending on how it is lighted.

Inside the cabin it’s pretty much the same deal as seen in the Coupe, with the exception of the brown leather that replaces the previous all-black look. This brown leather was used for covering the door sills, the seats’ behind, roll-over bars and also the top of the dashboard.

No details regarding the possibility of putting the Zagato Coupe or Roadster into production.
