Wiesmann can be dead - but his cars are not

Call it an accident of the death of Retro or the Blight that decimates the European niche car manufacturing business. Whatever you see, Wiesmann, we are sad to say, is no longer there. But that does not mean that his cars are not.

Never heard of it? Understandable, considering how dark this German manufacturer really was. The company was founded in 1988 by some brothers (whose name you guess) in the small town of Dülmen in the north-west of Germany. It has only produced a series line – but in many iterations – before the company went bankrupt in 2013.

The MF5 GT was the summit of all, a retro coupe that was powered by the same engine as you would in a BMW X5 M or X6 M (about 2010-13). This 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 sent 547 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission to the 3,000-pound bolide to 62 in under four seconds on its way to a top speed Quote 193 mph.

Wiesmann has made only 20 of these GTs in the MF5 specification, of which a splendid example is now offered for sale by a dealer in Belgium for JamesEdition. It is listed in classic silver and black and has 2167 miles on the odometer, but it is listed for € 279,000 – equals nearly $ 300k at current exchange rates, representing a premium on the € 189,500 that charged the factory when it was still up to you Know, actually in business.

This is a nice markup that would like us to have bought one of them when we had the chance. But the point is that if you missed the opportunity, it is not quite gone. Efforts are allegedly underway (from yet a pair of brothers) to revive the dormant marque, but whether these efforts ever have to be realized or not, there are still second-hand examples like these that occur in the market but sporadically.
