The Zagato design team faced severe technical restrictions and a need to carry over many of the original parts to maintain the dynamic integrity of this very sophisticated vehicle. Yet, despite this, the team was determined to give the car a highly distinctive character.
This they achieved with the double-bubble roof, pronounced wheelarch lines and a rounded tail, together with all-new rear combination lights. The body has a more imposing, extravagant character than the original coupé, while still retaining that solidity which is so much a part of the car’s charm. It is certainly extrovert in its styling; which is highly appropriate to a limited-production model born from two such pillars of automotive culture as Bentley and Zagato.
