The German car manufacturer Wiesmann introduced the GT MF5 in 2008 and launched the production in 2009.

While the world financial crisis still affected more potential customers, Wiesmann had to fight harder for any penny. Instead of closing their shop, the two brothers that started the German brand tried a different approach: they launched a new model, the MF5. They offered it in two shapes: a coupe named GT MF5 and a roadster.

The design team took their inspiration from former British sports cars from the '60s and installed a heart-shaped grille at the front that resembled the Jaguar XK120 with a chromed surrounding and black vertical slats. On the wide fenders, the carmaker placed four round headlamps. There was no visible bumper on the car. That was behind the front apron, which covered all the lower area. At the bottom, it sported two wide grilles to help to cool the massive V-8 installed under the hood. Wiesmann placed a vent on each front fender to extract the hot air from the engine bay. The curved lines of the bodywork and the sloped roofline enhanced the car's dynamic look, while at the back, a wing ensured a better grip for the wide tires.

Inside, the leather-clad interior spoiled its owner with exclusive materials. Wiesmann installed an LCD in front of the driver, complemented by seven other dials and gauges from the center stack. The high-bolstered bucket seats featured adjustments to fit the occupants in the best possible way.

Under the hood, the carmaker installed a 5.0-liter V-8 carried over from BMW M5 along with the seven-speed automatic gearbox. It sent the power to the rear wheels via a limited-slip differential.
