gathering of the industry's leading coachbuilders. The premiere in question

cars and fuses the design DNA of the two companies into a fresh and
desinctive whole. This one-off model is the product of many hours of

without comparison. The Concorso began as a get-together of coachbuilders
presenting one-off hand-built creations, and the BMW Zagato Coupé follows
very much in that tradition.

BMW has unveiled the 6-Series coupe, ahead of its debut at Auto Shanghai
Designed to be the ultimate "dream car," the coupe features a "shark nose"
front-end with bi-xenon headlights and a forward-slanting grille. Further
back, the profile boasts frameless windows, chrome accents, and a C-pillar
with the distinctive Hofmeister kink. Lastly, in the rear, there's a dual
Exhaust system, LED tail lights, and a
trunk lid with an integrated spoiler.
Inside, the cabin is awash with high quality materials and premium
amenities. Highlights include Dakota leather seats, high-gloss black trim
(brushed aluminum and wood trim are also available), a freestanding 7-inch
iDrive display and a spacious boot which can hold up to 460 liters (16.24
cubic feet) of luggage. On the options list, customers can order heated /

and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the coupe to run from 0-100
km/h in 4.9 seconds, before hitting a limited top speed of 250 km/h (155
mph). Furthermore, owners can expect to average 10.4 L/100km (27.2 mpg imp
/ 22.6 mpg US) and have CO2 emissions of 243 g/km.
Pricing information hasn't been released, but the redesigned model will go
on sale in the United States this fall.
