After a few years of development, Wiesmann transformed the MF3 roadster into a capable two-door sportscar powered by a BMW-sourced V8, and the result was spectacular.
Martin and Friedheim Wiesmann brothers created something unusual but pleasant for those who asked for a custom-looking car but could still find parts for it. They put some British car design cues into a blender and mixed them with modern technologies, and the result was not just stunning but also thrilling.
From the outside, the heart-shaped grille that resembled the one from a Jaguar XK120, the doors from an E-Type, and the roofline from an Austin Healey (or, maybe, Morgan Aeromax) created a mix of beautiful cues. In addition, the four headlights mimicked machine guns from a WWII aircraft. There was no visible bumper on either side of the vehicle since that was neatly concealed underneath the bodywork. The sloped rear end also sported the same number of round lamps, plus a set of two other fog lights flanked the twin exhaust system.
Inside, the cabin was tiny, just wide enough for two people. But it didn't lack luxurious amenities such as quilted Alcantara on the sports seats with high-back and leather outer sides. Fronting the driver was just a small instrument cluster with a few displays, while the main dials were placed on the center stack. A special storage area between the seats hosted a phone or MP3 player connector, plus the buttons for the heated seats and the adjustments for the electric door mirrors.
Under the hood, the MF4 featured a 4.4-liter V8 that provided 408 hp (408 PS), 46 hp more than the previous MF4 introduced in 2008.
