One of Wiesmann’s oldest models, the six-cylinder Roadster MF3, is about to reach the end of its product cycle after 18 long years.
In honor of the milestone the German sports car manufacturer is teaming up with lifestyle brand Sieger to bring out a special edition model for each of the years the car was in production.
Part of the reason for the Roadster MF3’s end is that Wiesmann relies on BMW for the supply of its six-cylinder engine, more accurately, BMW’s M division.
You see, the Roadster MF3’s engine is the 3.2-liter straight-six from the previous generation M3. Rated at 343 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque, the legendary engine is no longer available, and soon, neither will the Roadster MF3.
Together with Sieger, Wiesmann has given the last 18 examples of its Roadster MF3 destined for production a unique look and character.
Bearing names such as Panther, Rocket and Chocolat, these special edition models all differ from each other while retaining an unmistakable similarity. The doors, seats and steering wheel have been completely redesigned for the final edition, while special wheels and door sills have also been added.
The final edition will be on display at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show, press days for which kick off on September 13. In the meantime follow our complete coverage of the event by clicking here
