Wiesmann Roadster MF4
A completely new model has been born with the Wiesmann Roadster MF4, which is now available alongside the classic Wiesmann Roadster MF3. Like all Wiesmann sports cars, the Roadster MF4 is built entirely by hand. Despite its distinct design, it is seamlessly integrated in the Wiesmann portfolio. All the essential body and chassis parts have been designed completely from scratch. The Roadster MF4 provides the unique Wiesmann driving experience thanks to its outstanding driving performance and unique agility. This two seater delivers impressive driving dynamics, which makes it a whole lot more exciting to drive than the majority of other sports cars, and it satisfies market requirements of more power and torque.
The Wiesmann Roadster MF4 has the typical sound of the 8-cylinder engine that powers it. So what distinguishes it from other cars? Obviously, this new engine turns the Roadster MF4 into a powerhouse with enhanced driving properties such as irresistible acceleration and the unique capability to transmit its enormous power directly to the road. The customer has a choice of two engines: a high-torque 4.8 litre V8 engine with 367 hp (270 kW) and - the same engine that is built into the Wiesmann Roadster MF4-S - a high-revving 4.0 litre V8 which delivers 420 hp (309 kW).
The Wiesmann Roadster MF4's individuality not only shines through on the Nürburgring's Nordschleife, but also at a measured pace on country roads, where its fascinating agility and driving dynamics are immediately evident. That's all down to the vehicle's superior performance values: an impressive 420 hp and maximum torque of 400 Nm, coupled with a power-to-weight ratio of 3.1 kg/hp enables the Roadster MF4 to accelerate from zero to 100 in only 4.4 seconds. With a maximum speed of 300 km/h, this thoroughbred sports car races across the tarmac giving the driver a perfect feel of the road. Lateral acceleration while cornering is transferred directly to the cockpit thanks to the low-slung position of the seat, just ahead of the rear axle.
Even the Wiesmann Roadster MF4's eye-catching exterior appearance communicates individual style and superiority, putting it in a class of its own. Despite the car's timeless styling, which was developed on the basis of the Wiesmann Roadster, the Roadster MF4 is a completely new sports car. The body has captivatingly distinct, curved lines and an unmistakeable look. The front end features the large radiator grille that is typical of the Wiesmann cars and circular xenon headlights. Viewed from the side, distinctive beading emphasises the vehicle's agility. The neat, dynamic shape of the clamshell rear with twin exhaust further enhances the Roadster MF4's athletic appearance.
The cockpit of the Wiesmann Roadster MF4 is geared in all respects to the functions of a sports car. Everything that is necessary for driving and operating the vehicle is within perfect reach of the driver. All the individual aspects of interior trim are hand-made and reduced to the minimum for maximum driving enjoyment! It goes without saying that the Dülmen production plant also uses high quality materials which are reliably processed by proven specialists to make the Wiesmann Roadster MF4. The fabric hood with folding frame is produced with meticulous precision. It is made-to-measure and perfectly matched to the new design of the Roadster MF4. The new sports car is also fitted with a dual stage driver and passenger airbag and comes in a left or right hand drive version.
