Wiesmann, the well-known German sports manufacturer, unveiled the details of its latest handmade creation: the GT MF5. The brand new car based on the MF4 coupe, is powered by Bmw’s 507hp V10 engine found also on the M5 and M6 models. The MF5 packs 140 more horsepower due to the fact that its older brother, the MF4, is powered by the 367 hp 4.8 V8 engine also manufactured by Bmw.
Equipped with a seven-speed SMG transmission the MF5 is capable to sprint from 0-100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds while the top speed is of 307 km/h. With such technical specifications it is obviously that the vehicle features sport elements like: custom-fitted seats, 19” alloy wheels fitted but also with a proffesional braking system with cross-drilled and vented 14.7-inch front discs and 14.6-inch rotors out back.
Priced at around $280,000 the car will enter production this spring but the bad news is that the car will not be available yet on the American market. For the Wiesmann fans we have also some great news: recently the manufacturer announced that MF4 and MF5 roadsters are programmed to debut in 2009 at the Geneva Auto Show.
