The Wiesmann Roadster MF3 : Official PR
There are plenty of sporty cars, but sports cars for individualists are a rarity. There is a particular scarcity of sports cars of the sort that can boast not only a great deal of driving pleasure but also exclusive craftsmanship and a classic design. This exclusive group certainly includes the Roadster from Wiesmann.
The body of the Wiesmann Roadster has captivatingly distinct, curved lines and an unmistakeable face. The reason for that is certainly because design at Wiesmann is not created in the wind tunnel, but in the hearts and minds of genuine enthusiasts. The Roadster's fabric hood with its folding frame is produced to a particularly high degree of precision. It is made to measure and perfectly matched to the vehicle. After all, journeys with the hood up and at high speed should also be fun. Despite that it only takes a few seconds to open and is covered with a tonneau cover, so that you can enjoy every moment of sunshine.
The Roadster's engine technology comes from the BMW stable. The powerful BMW engines are well known for their agility and sporty pretensions, and provide impressive performance in the Wiesmann Roadster. The combination of the vehicle's low weight and the tremendous performance potential of the inline 6-cylinder engine results in unmatched driving dynamics.
The engine delivers 252 kW / 343 hp from 3,246 cc.
With its powerful elegance, the Wiesmann Roadster stands above all for rapid acceleration. With 343 hp, maximum torque of 365 Nm and a power-to-weight ratio of 3.44 g/hp, it sprints from a standstill to 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds. And with a top speed of 255 km/h, pure driving pleasure is guaranteed. It is enhanced to the point of perfection by a 6-speed sequential gearbox.
As for the body of the Roadster, it is produced from high-quality, glass fibre reinforced composite material. Under the body, the hot-dip galvanised space frame chassis with tremendous torsional rigidity also contributes to the vehicle's safety. It is aluminium-panelled and equipped with sturdy side-impact protection, a unique detail in the automotive landscape. An additional bonus of this safety-conscious construction method: "rust" simply does not figure in the vocabulary at Wiesmann.
The Wiesmann Roadster was first built in 1993 and has been continuously further developed in subsequent years. Over 680 Roadsters have now been produced and a build quality has been achieved that is unequalled in this day and age. There has been a wide range of detailed visual and technical modifications undertaken in recent years. However, the classic design has not been changed in the process. Instead, continuous upgrading of the interior and modest changes to the external appearance of the Roadster contribute to the fascinating further development of the vehicle design.
