The German coachbuilders at Wiesmann revealed their MF4 Roadster at the Geneva Motor Show ; it is a completely new vehicle that pays homage to the classic MF3. Like the MF3 Roadster, the MF4 is also hand-built and will be priced at 128,900 euros ($163,000) for a standard version and at 137,900 euros ($174,500) for the higher performing MF4-S Roadster.
Weismann is offering two BMW engines for their new model. The first powers the standard version: a 4.8 liter V8 that produces 367 HP and for the MF4-S: a V8 with 420 hp and a displacement of 3999 cm3. The engines are mated to either a traditional automatic transmission or a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
The MF4-S Roadster can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds and will hit a top speed of 186 mph.
UPDATE 06/12/11: Been a while since we last saw the Wiesmann Roadster MF4 in its natural element: an empty strip of tarmac on a military airfield ready to get pounced on. In this video, the GT version of the MF4 is accompanied by two MF3 Roadsters as it blasts off, the piercing sound of its 420-horsepower engine breaking the silence surrounding the airstrip. It’s a great video for any fans of high-powered retro-looking sports cars. Check it out after the jump.
