Wiesmann MF5 Roadster teased

Wiesmann MF5 Roadster teased

Wiesmann MF5 Roadster rq

German automaker Wiesmann has been busy making drop-tops in 2009. It began with the 367-hp V8-powered MF4 Roadster unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show back in March. Now, Weismann is bringing another open-aired creation to the Frankfurt Motor Show, and it’s released a teaser shot in an attempt to get us all worked up before the big day.

Powered by the BMW M5/M6-derived V10, Weismann says the 507-hp MF5 Roadster will get to 100kph in under 4 seconds — the same as its fixed roof sibling — and can blast to a top speed of 308 kph.

Aside from the cloth roof, the body remains unchanged and all the standard equipment carries over to the Roadster, including the dual airbags, ABS and stability control. Weismann is only planning to produce 55 examples, so there’s little doubt they’ll find their way into enthusiastic collector’s garages.
