Debuting at the turn of 2011, the Wiesmann Spyder Concept promised to be the most extreme Wiesmann offered to date, despite its long life of 18 years. At the time of the unveiling, Wiesmann was predicted to be pushing the Spyder Concept towards the production line, but since then the economic meltdown in the Eurozone subsequently put all those plans on the backburner.
Originally created as a design study upon the request of many loyal Wiesmann customers, the Spyder Concept debuted with a 4.0-liter BMW-sourced V8 engine producing 420 horsepower. When combined with a total weight of under 2,200 pounds, the Spyder Concept promised to hit 60 mph in just 4 seconds before topping out at a top speed of 180 mph.
However, despite the strong interest in the car, Wiesmann has yet to confirm or deny if the Spyder Concept will ever reach the production line, but in saying that, the firm has also yet to rule out any possible favorable decision for the future.
The biggest hurdle facing the small company is the simple fact that production of the Wiesmann Roadster MF3, for which the Spyder Concept is based upon, recently ended after 18 years and it’s likely that the firm would prioritize developing a successor to the MF3 over any possible swan-song, final edition of the sports car.
Nevertheless, we’re still holding out hope that the Spyder Concept may see the production green light in the coming months, but in saying that, we’re doubtful.
