Making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 2009, the Wiesmann MF4 Roadster boasted a longer wheelbase than the MF3, two extra cylinders and a brand-new chassis. Its combination of style and power was an instant hit.
‘Buying a Wiesmann gets you more than a car. It’s a virtual social club with drives through the Alps, track days at Spa and the Nürburgring, and more laid on throughout the year.’
‘You don’t so much sit in the Wiesmann GT as wear it.’
‘A starkly original take on big-cube performance thuggery. It should be intimidating but it’s actually fabulously accessible.’
A two-seater convertible, it came in three iterations: the MF4, the MF4-S and the MF4-T. The first GT M4 and Roadster MF4 utilised naturally aspirated 4.8L (367 HP/270 kW) V8 BMW engines paired with a six-speed manual transmission.
The MF4-S is an even sportier model, with a 420 HP/309 kW V8 engine and a six-speed manual transmission as standard. The MF4-T falls somewhere between the two, with a 407 HP/300 kW twin-turbo V8 engine.
Along with the convertible versions, the MF4-S and MF4-T were also made as coupes, the first ‘closed’ cars designed and built by the company, fulfilling a dream of building a classic V8-powered coupe.
The GT MF4 premiered at the 2005 IAA in Frankfurt, whilst the GT MF4-S debuted at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show.
