Here's hoping that there's at least a limited production run of the BMW Zagato Roadster. The German car company teamed up with the Italian design consultancy firm to create a roadster that is both sexier and sharper than the company's current offering, the Z4.

Zagato also took the liberty of creating a hardtop coupe with a foldable roof for BMW. That design looks great, but it doesn't look anywhere near as fun to drive as the BMW Zagato Roadster. No details have emerged on the roadster's engine, but it's likely to be similar to the engine found in the Z4. The BMW Zagato Roadster is likely nothing more than a design study. Still, if it's well received, then there's a chance that BMW could incorporate some of Zagato's styling elements in future roadsters.
