The first time we saw a Wiesmann driven in anger, we couldn't make heads or tails of it. The designer seemed to be living in the 40s, with a misguided view of what future sports coupes would look like. However, on the engineering side of things, it was pure pistonhead porn. The GT model, with its uncompromising suspension and inline-six from the E46 M3, was masterful.
So when news of a crashed Wiesmann prototype found its way onto the feeds yesterday, we were taken aback. Motor Authority came across photos of the crashed coupe after the test driver nicked the center barrier, collided with a truck and then began spinning while undergoing testing on the Autobahn. Thankfully, no one was injured in the crash, but serious damage was sustained to the vehicle.

We took the liberty of posting the Top Gear review of the cabrio after the jump.

      MERCY KILLING, as far as the styling goes.

      Comment #3 was right, you might want to check the spelling in the headline. You managed to change it and it's still wrong.

      In the video, shouldn't he have pronounced it "veese man?"

      Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You may think you're handsome, BOB, while others think you're ugly. Should they kill you out of mercy then? Rhetorical question of course.
