Small series manufacturer Wiesmann is now implanting the unit from the current M5 and M6 from BMW in its GT sports car. The unit delivers an impressive 140 hp more than its predecessor.
The sports car manufacturer Wiesmann will in future be offering its GT with a ten-cylinder engine under the hood. As the company announced in Frankfurt at the IAA International Motor Show, production should start after the turn of the year. The GT MF 5 will then be sold for at least 178,900 euros.
Instead of the V8 engine with 4.8 liters displacement and 270 kW / 367 hp used in the old BMW M5, the company is now using the five-liter V10 engine from the current M5 and M6. In the GT MF 5, too, the unit has 373 kW / 507 hp and achieves a maximum torque of 520 Newton meters. Controlled by a sequential seven-speed gearbox, the MF5 accelerates to 100 km / h in 3.9 seconds and reaches a maximum of 310 km / h. Wiesmann specifies consumption with an average of 14.8 liters, which corresponds to CO2 emissions of 357 grams per kilometer.
To create space for the engine, Wiesmann stretched and widened the GT a little, but in return lowered the roof. Inside the car has newly developed sports bucket seats, which can be adapted to the body contour of the driver and front passenger if required. There is also ABS and the electronic anti-skid ESP as standard, as well as a number of carbon-fiber attachments upon request. Extras such as airbags, on the other hand, are not available. (dpa)
