  • Wiesmann GT MF5 Official Safety Car

    Wiesmann’s MF5 has been in production for just over a year but the striking GT’s combination of a BMW M5 V10 drivetrain and seductively retro styling has made it very popular among performance circles. One group that has noticed the car is the FIA, which has picked it as the Official Safety Car for this year’s GT Championship. The new series kicks off on May 3 at Silverstone in Britain. As previously mentioned, the MF5 packs the same 5.0L V10 engine used by BMW’s M Division for its M5 and M6 models and is based on Wiesmann’s current GT. Differentiating the MF5...

  • Porsche Cayenne GTS Porsche Design Edition 3
