Wiesmann MF3 Final Edition unveiled at Frankfurt show

September 16, 2011

German sports car specialist Wiesmann has unveiled one of 18 special edition Wiesmann MF3 Final Edition roadsters at the 2011 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany.

Just 18 Final Eidtion roadsters are being made to commemorate the end of production for the 18-year-old Wiesmann MF3 Roadster sports car.

Each example will be created, with help from German company Sieger, featuring a distinct theme. The first example on show at the 2011 Frankfurt show presents a unique ‘Polar Bear’ colour scheme and interior décor. Managing director Friedhelm Wiesmann recently said,

“Our basic idea was to create an amazing design that would make the last cars even more desirable and valuable. Sieger is known the world over as a premium brand, and its designers have earned it international attention and admiration. It is the ideal company to match our ambition to combine beauty and technical perfection as one.”

Like the normal Wiesmann MF3, the special editions are powered by the previous generation 3.2-litre BMW M3 straight-six engine outputting 252kW and 364Nm.  The Wiesmann MF3’s magic ingredient is being small, lightweight (1180kg) and very agile, while offering a traditional front-engine rear-wheel drive sports car layout.
