Spotted! Wiesmann GT MF5, Zurich SwitzerlandPosted: June 22, 2012
This is a Wiesmann GT MF5, and it is truly an epic car to spot on the street. We don’t get these at all in America, so it was an even bigger deal for me. This is the first Wiesmann I have seen, of any sort, and it also happened to be my favorite one. The GT MF5 V10. That is right, tucked into that tiny little car is the 5.0L V10 from the BMW M6, producing around 500hp. This was definitely one of the V10 models, I could tell from the sound, but the second generation GT MF5s have the new 552hp twin turbo V8 from the current BMW M5/M6. Honestly though, I much prefer the glorious V10 in a smaller car like the Wiesmann, so Im glad I saw that one. Sorry about the blurry pics, but it was worth posting anyway. It was getting dark and I was shooting from on top of a building, so I did what I could. Hopefully next time I will be able to get up close with one. Great car.
