Wiesmann GT MF5

Pure energy and dynamism - that's the new Wiesmann GT MF5. This sports car for the purist, with its classic design and state-of-the-art technology, sets a new all-time high standard for the already impressive performance of Wiesmann sports cars. Equipped with a high-revving BMW V10 delivering 507 hp, it completes the sprint from a standstill to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds. With a sensational power-to-rate ratio of 2.7 kg/hp and a top speed of 310 km/h, this Coupé plays for top honours in the premier league for sports cars. Exclusive driving enjoyment is guaranteed with the Wiesmann GT MF5!

"With the MF5 we are primarily addressing the wishes of many GT enthusiasts who want to express their individuality through even more power and sportiness," says Friedhelm Wiesmann, the spokesperson for the management at Wiesmann. His brother, Martin Wiesmann, responsible as director for development and production, displays similar enthusiasm for the new Wiesmann model: "The GT MF5 represents the ideal model with which to round off our range at the top end, and it is certainly the most exciting sports car that Wiesmann has ever presented to the public."

The car's powerful exterior styling already hints at the outstanding driving dynamics that await the driver of a Wiesmann GT MF5: the extremely low, crouching body combined with the wide tyres promise power in abundance. The wing and the diffuser provide plenty of downforce on the rear suspension, guaranteeing excellent stability even at high speeds. A high-performance suspension system has been developed with a great deal of effort at the manufacturing plant in Dülmen, offering exclusive driving enjoyment to the driver of an MF5, but also the necessary degree of safety. Energy-absorbing body zones also contribute to the safety of the Wiesmann GT MF5, along with the rigid aluminium monocoque with integrated side-impact protection, as well as ABS as standard in conjunction with DSC dynamic stability control. The low overall weight combined with aerodynamic perfection also delivers an extremely low emissions figure in this performance category.

The cockpit is geared in all respects to the functions of a sports car. Everything that is necessary for driving and operating the vehicle is within perfect reach of the driver. The low seating position, just ahead of the rear axle, ensures that the driver senses and experiences every movement of this driving machine. Optimum contact with the vehicle is guaranteed by the newly developed sports bucket seats with excellent lateral support, which can be adapted to the body contours of driver and passenger as required. One push of the silver starter button of the Wiesmann GT MF5, just next to the ignition key, and the fun begins!
