Wiesmann Roadster MF5

Wiesmann has officially taken the wraps off their exclusive MF5 Roadster at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

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 such great 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.

Only 55 units of the Wiesmann MF5 Roadster will be built, each with a price tag of €189,500 ($278,108 USD).

It's the world premiere of the brand new and strictly limited Wiesmann Roadster MF5 with 507 HP and a 5 litre V10 BMW engine. At the same time visitors can have a look at a unique and unprecedented activity for the IAA.

The Wiesmann GT MF4 will be produced during the 12 exhibition days and shows the secrets of hand-crafted sports cars live in Frankfurt .

Delivering a top speed of 310 km/h, an exceptionally low power-to-weight ratio of only 2.7 kg/hp and completing the sprint from standstill to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds, the Wiesmann Roadster MF5 takes even experienced sports car enthusiasts into a brand new dimension of driving enjoyment. This exclusive open-air experience will only be available to a select few because the spirited power package is only being produced in a limited edition of 55. Equipped with a V10 engine, 507 HP and 520 Nm torque, it's a car that appeals to all the senses. The extendable rear wing of the roadster version plus perfectly balanced suspension set-up guarantees the necessary stability, even at top speeds.
