Zagato Get Me One Of These!

In another of the long, slow trickle of sneak peeks of vehicles set to premiere at the Geneva Auto Show (just hold the damn show already people!), Italian design atelier Zagato has released the first official shots of its Bentley Zagato GTZ. Following the tradition of years of luscious Zagato re-skins of unattainable British whips, the design adds sleeker lines, crisp folds and its trademark double-bubble roof to the already hot Bentley GT Speed. A two-tone paint scheme in British Racing Green, a toned rear-end and Zagato's "Z" emblem on the front quarter round out the subtle, yet wholly distinctive re-skin. Like every other Zagato concept, the GTZ is being called a non-production prototype designed to inspire enough money-no-object offers from the bloated plutocrats of the world to eventually produce a tiny run of GTZs. We'll start looking for the whip on the streets of Monaco once several prominent charities begin to report downturns in donations in the next year or so.

    The Green Hornet could do a lot worse than this. Probably the best "retro/modern" to date.

    I have to say that I find modern Bentley an appalling brand that has become synonymous with bad taste and bad attitudes. It should be a refined gentlemen's express, not a wannabe gangsta bling mobile
