Wiesmann is planning the release of an engine upgrade for the MF4 and MF5 line-up. The ultimate sports cars are based on previous models, but will both be outfitted with a new twin turbo V8 engine also used in the BMW X5 M, X6 M and upcoming F10 M5.
A total of four vehicles will make their official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The newly upgraded GT MF4 Coupé, GT MF5 Coupé, Roadster MF4 and Roadster MF5 are outfitted with the 4.4 liter V8 twin turbo direct injection petrol engine. The engine capacity of the MF4 will be 4,395cm³ and 407hp (300kW) at 5,500 to 6,400rpm, the sports car will reach a top speed of 180mph. It will reach 0 to 60mph in just 4.6 seconds.
The top-of-the-range model – the MF5 – will also be equipped with the 4.4 liter V8 twin turbo direct injection petrol engine. The only difference between the two is the performance. The M-motor specifications are 555hp at 5,750 to 6,750rpm, 0 to 60mph in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 193mph. The new engine makes the MF5 model series the most powerful Wiesmann car ever produced.
