Wiesmann MF5 GT Replacement Spotted Spyshots

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.

BMW M6 in both Coupe and Cabriolet Spyshots. #nurburgring

BMW unveiled its 6 Series Coupe concept at this year’s Paris Motor Show, giving us a preview at what the next-generation Sixer will look like when it debuts sometime next year. Fear not, M6 fans – this latest set of spy shots clearly shows that BMW has every intention of giving its latest grand tourer the high-power treatment.

Aside from the revised styling of the next-gen 6 Series, we can clearly see a set of large wheels wrapped in fat tires, not to mention the M-signature quad-exhaust pipes out back. Expect the M6 to use the same twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 setup that will debut in the new M5 sedan, meaning power numbers should be somewhere around 560 horsepower and 530 pound-feet of torque. It all sounds delicious, and we can’t wait to see how the M treatment looks on the even sleeker coupe.
