As one of its definitions, art is something that has the ability to move an individual’s emotions, and such emotions have been constantly stirred by a design firm in Milan, Italy. Zagato has been known to produce art since World War I, using sheet metal as its canvas. So it is not a surprise that established car companies come knocking on their door step for one-off creations and prototypes, to which BMW is no exception.  
 
Following the much-lauded Zagato Coupe which launched four months ago, BMW and Zagato decided to up the ante and craft a drop-top version. The result made its debut at the recently-held Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. This is the BMW Zagato Roadster.
