Wiesmann, a small German manufacturer who started their career making hardtops for convertibles, has revealed the new Spyder Concept at the Geneva Motor Show. The new concept is a two-seater, extremely purist, convertible sports car that will make it to production, but not before 2012. We are not sure just yet if the production version will also be offered with no doors and windscreen. The company described the Spyder as the most extreme Wiesmann ever built.

The new Spyder concept weighs only 1000 kilos and will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4 seconds, while top speed goes up to 180 mph. The Wiesmann Spyder design study is based on the Wiesmann brothers’ early designs, though it also incorporates their many years of experience in sports car construction. It demonstrates the sports car manufacturer’s receptiveness to trends because many Wiesmann fans have approached the company founders in recent years with requests for an extremely purist model.

I bet they don’t had any plan to put this one on the market. Anyway, I love the unique platform of this concept but I wonder if what will be the figure performance of it.

I notice that the signature design of the car looks like the signature of the Bugatti. By the way, this small German company is making on its way to this industry. For a roadster, I would say that it has an impressive performance.

The numbers are actually rather impressive for a roadster. There are only a few of them that can do nought to sixty in just four seconds, so this would surely be to the liking of speed freaks.

This one is a rather nice looking roadster. I really like the old school feel that they have in here. And they actually have this read for production by 2012? well, that’s another something.

Looks rather old school to me. Kinda reminds me of those old F1 cars of the fifties. But there is something to it that makes it rather interesting to me.
