FULFILLING A DREAM
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.’ – Evo
‘You don’t so much sit in the Wiesmann GT as wear it.’ – Evo
‘A starkly original take on big-cube performance thuggery. It should be intimidating but it’s actually fabulously accessible.’ – Evo
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.
