Wiesmann GT MF4-CS 

  • built in Germany
  • 2013
  • 414 HP 4.0L
  • 182 mph
 
Genuine dynamic composure lives here, too: a quick-helmed and super-sticky yet remarkably poised, flat-riding and limber chassis.
by EVO (May, 2008)
By comparison the Wiesmann’s naturally aspirated 362bhp has the weight and inevitability of a free-falling anvil.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

But then it is a starkly original take on big-cube performance thuggery.
by EVO (May, 2008)
The upshot is a supercar-nudging power-to-weight ratio of 297bhp/ton, in light of which the claimed 0-62mph time of 4.6sec (if not the 174mph max) seems a little conservative.
by EVO (May, 2008)
Punch the pedal to the floor and the back of your nut won’t break contact with head restraint, so utterly seamless and linear is the thrust measured out by the transmission.
by EVO (May, 2008)

Powertrain

True, a small engine fizzed up to an explosive frenzy by a heavy-duty blower can give a scalded cat a run for its money.
by EVO (May, 2008)
The Wiesmann Roadster has now been in production for 15 years – therefore qualifying as something of a classic itself – and in its most potent ‘MF3’ guise is powered by the previous M3’s 338bhp straight-six engine.
by EVO (May, 2008)
Now we’re back behind the GT’s tiny wheel to sample the most recent tweak in contrast between the romance of the old and the shock of the new, namely ZF’s fastest, smoothest, smartest six-speed auto with paddles.
by EVO (May, 2008)

Interior

The seats could do with a little more lumbar support, and cabin space, while far from tight, isn’t exactly voluminous.
by EVO (May, 2008)
Wiesmann offers a range of handmade leather interiors with conspicuously stitched, padded, quilted and distressed finishes, ranging from the tastefully understated to the wonderfully vulgar.
by EVO (May, 2008)
The instruments – an unusually stacked array of dials and gauges clustered in the middle of the dash rather than behind the steering wheel – are, like the knobs and switches, circular and chromed, while the leanly padded bucket seats proudly bear the Wiesmann gecko logo.
by EVO (May, 2008)

Body style

Three years ago, though, the Roadster was joined by the more sophisticated and powerful V8-engined, coupe-bodied GT, itself the result of a five-year development.
by EVO (May, 2008)
Far from looking like a startled, bug-eyed monster – the usual fate that befalls a shape-shifter frozen, mid-morph, in a terminal state of indecision – it is instead a rather beautiful coupe with enormous presence: tense, flushed with adrenalin, athletic, almost painfully graceful.
by EVO (May, 2008)
The Wiesmann brothers, Martin and Friedheim, displayed admirable, two-handed dexterity when they decided to branch out from what must be the rather mundane business of building third-party hard tops for convertibles and, in 1993, unveiled a whole, fully formed ’60s-inspired roadster built around a galvanised steel chassis and using modern BMW running gear.

Handling

You’ll be pushing hard when the grip eventually runs out.
