Wiesman celebrates with special edition MF4-S

Niche automaker Wiesman is celebrating a birthday and instead of blowing out candles or downing beers its created a special edition vehicle.

Founded in 1985 by brothers Martin, an engineer, and Friedhelm, a businessman, Wiesmann got its start building hardtops for convertibles. In 2006, however, the Brothers Wiesmann came out with their own vehicle a curvaceous and retro coupe and roadster. It’s hard to tell when they started counting from, but the company is now celebrating their 20th anniversary with a series of special editions, starting with this GT MF4-S.

Power comes from a 4.8-litre V8 derived from the BMW M3’s and tuned to 420 horsepower, placing it between the standard 367hp MF4 and the 507hp V10-powered MF5. Customers can choose between a six-speed manual or a dual-clutch transmission, while special touches include a revised interior featuring the obligatory numbered and signed plaque. Only 30 examples of the MF4-S will be offered, but Wiesmann is expected to follow it with two more special editions before the birthday party is over. It will be unveiled at the Geneva Show in March.
