Wiesmann GT MF4-CS at Geneva Motor Show

 The 2013 Geneva Motor Show has witnessed the launch of the very impressive Wiesmann GT MF4-CS with monocoque frame chassis, mid-engine configuration, and rear-wheel drive. Due to the lightweight material of the cassis and its fiberglass body, the two-seater is only 1,350 kg (less than 3,000 lbs.) in weight. Oh, and let us not forget the carbon fiber rear wing.

In terms of looks, we can probably all agree that the car boasts a retro-inspired design but with a very alluring contemporary edginess. It features excellent aerodynamics, which helps the 4.0-liter V8 engine push it to its maximum speed of 293 km/h (182 mph) with almost no effort at all. The 0-62 mph sprint is completed in only 4.4 seconds, thanks to the engine’s 420 HP and 400 Nm of torque, and the 7-speed double-clutch transmission, with steering wheel paddle shifters.

Fitted with excellent safety systems, the car is very reliable in the city and on the highway as well. It flaunts an integrated side impact protection system, engine immobilizer, airbags, safety steering, ABS, and DSC, along with other advanced technologies meant to keep you safe at any time and all speeds. Apparently one of these fierce rides will set you back over €193,000 ($250,000).
