    Video: BMW Zagato Coupe clears its throat for the crowds at Villa d'Este
    1338321480

    Goodbye Bangle, hello Zagato. While the BMW design ethos may be best known for the aggressive flame-surfacing language, it took a decidedly different approach at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este this weekend when it unveiled the Zagato Coupé concept.
