2011 Wiesmann MF5 V10 Black Bat by SchwabenFolia

2011 Wiesmann MF5 V10 Black Bat by SchwabenFolia

If you’ve never heard of German tuning company, SchwabenFolia, then you’re not alone. Having said that, they sure did a heck of a job introducing themselves to the tuning world with a unique program for the Wiesmann MF5 V10.

The exterior work done on the car underscores the name it was given - Black Bat. It is highlighted by a matte black finish with foil covers on the door panels, inner hood, engine room, and trunk. The stealthy finish on the exterior of the MF5 V10 is further complimented by a new set of 20" forged wheels painted in black wrapped in high performance tires with 6-piston calipers and discs on the front and 4-piston calipers and discs on the rear from Brembo.

As for the engine, SchwabenFolia managed to tweak the MF5 V10’s already powerful BMW-sourced 5.0-liter V10 engine, thanks to a new dual exhaust stainless steel sports exhaust system, a 3-way catalytic converter, and a reconstructed air filtration system. The result is a performance boost that saw the output of the sports car rise from 560 horsepower all the way up to 600 horsepower with a 0-62 mph time of just 3.5 seconds and an increased top speed of 201 mph.

Very impressive work, SchwabenFolia!

2010 Wiesmann Roadster MF5

2010 Wiesmann Roadster MF5

The German coachbuilders Weismann unveiled the new MF5 Roadster at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The MF5 is limited to only 55 units, each priced at 189,500 Euros and features the classic curves of an English sports car at first glance with an unparalleld driving experience that could only come from a modern day high tech package.

The Weismann MF5 roadster is powered by a 5.0 Liter V10 from a BMW M5 mounted in the front midship position for better weight distribution and features a few tricks to ensure that all 507 HP and 384 lb-ft of torque make it to the ground through the BMW sourced SMG sequential 7 speed gearbox that allows it to rocket from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.9 seconds on its way to reaching a top speed of 192 MPH.

With this much power comes great responsability, so the MF5’safety system includes: an integrated side impact protection beam, ABS, DSC, a safety steering column that is adjustable in both height and length, BMW’s security system including an electronic engine immobilizer (EWS III), 3 point harness, Hydraulic Power Steering and the oh so important driver and passenger airbags.
