New BMW Zagato Model Coming To Pebble Beach

It was just a few months ago that BMW and Zagato teamed up to wow the crowds at the Concorso d'Eleganza Ville d'Este. The BMW Zagato Coupe was a sharp, curvy fastback that may or may not make it to production. And it may or may not be joined in production by a second BMW-Zagato collaboration. The partners have another vehicle to show, and it's coming later this week.

"Making its world debut late in the week will be a new BMW Zagato concept, the second collaboration between these two legendary car companies," BMW says in an announcement previewing its appearance at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance event.

Of course, BMW doesn't go into any details as to what the second collaboration with the Italian design firm is, but judging by the original BMW Zagato concept and last year's Aston Martin V12 Zagato, we're bound to enjoy looking at it.

In addition to the mysterious Zagato car, BMW will be bringing the new 2013 7 Series to North America for the first time. It will also show the 650i Gran Coupe and the all-new M5 and M6, in honor of M's 40th anniversary. BMW M will also show some older models in the M8 prototype, which has never before been shown in North America, and the M1 supercar.

BMW will race three vintage race cars - the 1986 BMW-March GTP, the 1980 BMW M1 Procar and the 1975 BMW 3.5 CSL.

All in all, it promises to be a very interesting appearance by BMW. Read more details in the short press release below.
