A couple weeks ago, C.W. posted this pic:
It is, of course, one of the earlier offerings from the once-defunct and since-resurrected Wiesmann company, and as lovely as that picture is, it doesn’t do the car justice. Here are a couple more:
Here’s the interior:
Wiesmann used BMW six-cylinder engines to power its MF models, until the introduction in 2003 of the GT MF4, which used BMW’s 4.8-litre V8, and the MF 5, which used the M5’s 5.0-litre V10.
The cars are all, of course, hand-built and don’t ask about the price. (Okay, okay: think new Aston Martin DB11 price for a secondhand Wiesmann MF 5.)
Lottery payout permitting, the MF4 would be on my shortlist of “Outrageously-Overpriced Self-Indulgent Midlife Crisis Cars”:
Come to think of it, it might well be the only car on that list.
Don’t ask me to pick between the Roadster (ragtop) or GT (roof). Nor between the tan or white leather interior. As for automatic- vs. manual transmission… that, I could decide.
