This Wiesmann is for sale from the first owner, has run less than 17.800 km only and comes with a large number of extras.
The company Wiesmann GmbH was founded in 1988 by the two brothers Martin and Friedhelm Wiesmann and was located in Duelmen, Germany. In the first years Wiesmann only produced hardtops, but the brothers always had the idea to build their own car – the Wiesmann Roadster.
In 1993 the first production model with the name Wiesmann Roadster MF30 was built – an open two-seater with a folding roof, a straight-six cylinder engine from BMW with a power output of 231 hp / 170 kW and a capacity of 2.979 ccm. The glass-fibre reinforced plastic (GRP) body of the roadster was mated to a stiff tube frame chassis.
The MF30 was followed by the MF3, that received a stronger 3.426 ccm straight-six cylinder BMW engine with 343 hp / 252 kW.
After building only open cars for twelve years, Martin and Friedhelm Wiesmann presented the first closed Wiesmann MF4 to the public on the IAA in Frankfurt 2003. The MF4 benefitted from various updates compared to the roadster in terms of chassis, design and engine. For the first time Wiesmann used a steel monocoque chassis, weighing only 110 kg, while the body was still made out of lightweight GRP. The engine was also heavily upgraded and Wiesmann went from the 6 cylinder engines to a 4.8 litre V8 BMW engine producing 367 hp (270 kW). With the new powerplant the MF4 reached a top speed of 290 km/h and accelerated from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds.
The Wiesmann GT MF4 Coupé offered by us was delivered to its first and current German owner on the 14th of September 2009. It was painted in “Panamabraun metallic” and has an extensive list of special equipment, i.a. the special leather “MB nature antique” that was used for the interior and also the steering wheel. The seats received the “Wiesmann-typical” gecko-sign as embroidery. Furthermore the Wiesmann was provided with a special order 2-coat metallic paint, door strips in aluminum, electrical seat height adjustments, seat heater for both the driver and passenger, air conditioning and Xenon light.
Today the GT MF4 Coupé has a total mileage of only 17.800 kilometers, is in a very nice almost new condition and still belongs to the first owner. The documentation file includes the confirmation of order, the delivery receipt and of course the original service booklet.
The car is very well kept. Just on the front some stone-chipping can be spotted. From the technical point of view, the Wiesmann runs flawlessly. All it needs before heading off into the new season would be a service. We’ll happily support you to organize this.
