After we fetched you the news back in July that BMW was ceasing production of the M5 and its formula 1 inspired engine, it left us wondering about the Wiesmann GT MF5.
But fear not the German roadster manufacturer has turned up today with a prototype to test the BMW V8 Twin Turbo as used in the X6 and the X5 M powered cars, and of course the upcoming M5/M6 in 2011.
The car was sporting larger wider wheels than its predecessor 325x25x20 on the rear and 285x30x20 on the fronts and was currently fitted with Michelin Pilot Sports.
The manufacturing process hasn’t changed from the previous model but we expect it to way slightly less than the current model due to the new engine.
Expect a saving of about 100kg making it weigh in at an estimated 1295kg and this should enable the car to exceed 200mph.
