The chassis consists of a front-mounted mid-engine layout, with drive sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed sequential transmission connected to a variable differential lock. The V10 develops the same 507hp and 520Nm of torque as in the BMW cars and, thanks to the lighter kerb weight of the MF 5, assures an acceleration time for the 0-100km stands of 3.9 seconds. The car also features a lowered ride-height and wider track compared to the regular GT model, but gains an additional 100kg.
Safety credentials include energy absorbing body parts, a stiff aluminum monocoque including a side-collision protection structure, and ABS combined with dynamic stability control. The market launch of the Wiesmann GT MF 5 is scheduled for the second half of next year and the final production version will also be fitted with even more carbon-fiber aero parts at the buyer’s request.
