Wiesmann may just be getting it right. It takes modern German engineering and wraps it in classic English styling.
The latest version of this modern-retro marriage is MF4-S, which well see for the first time in the flesh at the Geneva Motor Show in March. We were already expecting the MF4 and the MF5 , but the surprise MF4-S’s 420 hp 4.8-liter V8 lifted from the BMW M3 will make a nice middle point between the 367 hp MF4 and 507 hp MF5.
The MF4-S will be offered with either a manual or an automatic dual-clutch transmission. It is built on a aluminum monocoque chassis and has a lightweight bodywork. The MF4-S is part of Wiesmann’s celebration of its twentieth anniversary, so production will be limited (about 30 units).
