Geneva Preview: Wiesmann MF4-S

Article by Christian A., on March 29, 2009

When carmakers celebrate their birthdays they usually make a special version of their best cars. And when it comes to Wiesmann, you know you're in for a great car. The niche carmaker was started by brothers Martin and Friedhelm, an engineer and a businessman, respectively, which got its start making hardtops for convertibles.

However, in 2006, Wiesmann produced its own shapely and retro-static coupe and roadster. Although its not certain from what starting point they started counting, but Wiesmann will be celebrating its 20-year anniversary with a lineup of special versions including the GT MF4-S.

The car will come with a 4.8-liter V8 adapted from the Bmw M3 and tuned to generate 420hp and placing it in the middle of the 367 MF4 and the 507 hp V10-powered MF5.

Buyers have the option between a 6-speed manual or a dual-clutch transmission, plus special touches including a modified interior highlighting the compulsory numbered and signed plate. There will be a limited 30 units of the MF4-S that Wiesmann will make available with two more special versions close at the heel of this one. The MF4-S will be showcased at the Geneva Motor Show in March. No mention of possible pricing yet.

Press release: This year the Wiesmann GmbH presents again a new sports car at the 80th Motor Show in Geneva. The Wiesmann GT MF4-S completes from now on the product range of the sports cars manufacturer from Duelmen.

The new Gran Tourismo comes with the known high-revving 4.0 litre V8 engine from the Roadster MF4-S which delivers 420 hp (309 kW). Externally the brand new GT MF4-S differs in some design and aerodynamic details from the GT MF-4.

The rear shows a speed dependent slide out wing which can be also controlled manually. The front part standard bi-xenon headlamps and a new front spoiler. The GT MF4 with 367 hp (270 kW) will be unchanged available too.

Visitors will find the Wiesmann booth at the Geneva Automobil-Salon during the 5. to 15. march in hall 1, stand 1234. On 160 square meters the manufactory from Duelmen shows all handmade Wiesmann sports cars.
