Wiesmann MF3

  The MF3 Roadster is really the perfect nostalgia car, especially for those that can relive the glory days when roadsters were more than just monstrous engine mongers. At that time, looks mattered too, and the MF3 Roadster perfectly fits that bill in today‚Äôs world. The whole car is completely hand-built with a high-quality, glass fiber reinforced composite material to go with a leather interior that you can drown in. On top of the classic looks, the MF3 Roadster also comes with robust performance numbers courtesy of its 3.2.-liter inline six-cylinder engine that produces 343 horsepower and 269 lb/ft of torque.

The Wiesmann Roadster has had a good run, that much we can be sure of, but just like Atari and SpongeBites, all good things must come to an end. So 18 years after we first saw the Roadster MF3], the German sportscar is being prepared for its swan song with a collection of special edition models that Wiesmann is building in collaboration with luxury brand, Sieger.

To commemorate its 18-year run that began in 1993, the German automaker will be rolling out 18 unique models of the MF3, with each model carrying their own special color schemes, to go with fancy-pants nicknames that include Panther, Ivory, Swiss Blue, and Mountain Mobile. One of the special edition models was on display at the Frankfurt Motor Show, giving the attending crowd the first look at the last set of MF3 Roadsters to carry the Wiesmann badge.

The MF3 Roadster Final Edition is powered by a 3.2-liter six-cylinder engine that develops 338 horsepower - an increase of 13 horsepower from the standard model - and 269 lb/ft of torque. The car is mated to a number of gearbox options, including a five- or six-speed manual as well as an optional six-speed SMG transmission. All told, the MF3 Roadster Final Edition can clock in a 0-62 mph time of 4.9 seconds with a top speed of 158 mph.

UPDATE 03/07/2012: Weismann’s Final Edition MF3 Roadster, specifically the Scuba Mobil version, made its way over to the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in all of its psychedelic glory! Check out the images of this colorful ride in the picture gallery!

We know that this really isn’t so much of a race as it is a clear show of superiority for the out-of-this world Ariel Atom V8 , but it’s still pretty cool to see how a car like the Wiesmann MF3 Roadster can hold up against the mighty Atom, even if it’s relative to the number of car-lengths the latter can have over the former.

This video shows us exactly how powerful the Atom V8 really is. Make no mistake, the MF3 Roadster is far from a lightweight considering that it’s powered by a 3.2.-liter inline six-cylinder engine that produces 343 horsepower and 269 lb/ft of torque. But when you put those numbers up against the Atom V8 and its 3.0-liter V8 engine that chalks up 500 horsepower, it’s about as competitive as LeBron James participating in a dunk contest against Verne Troyer.

That’s not to say that this video isn’t entertaining. After all, it’s always fun to see the Ariel Atom V8 lay the smack down on any car that tries to cross its path.
