We give up. We have done our research and crawled the deep ends of the internet with no avail. There’s no whispers in the dark alleys, no proclamations on forums! There’s simply no information on this concept.
While there have been speculations that this is a BMW Zagato collaboration, we doubt it. The Z just doesn’t look the same as it does on the Zagato badges.
The concept in all probability will be unveiled at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este where the BMW Group Cocktail party kicks off at 19.30
The BMW Design page has posted this image to their wall and stated that the unveiling will happen at 8pm.
The Z is more in tune with the Z in BMW’s Z vehicles. The design is far too different from the Z4, so we wonder if this could be something else, what with BMW stepping into crevices between 3 and 5 Series vehicles to come up with the 4 Series and so on.
