Click above to view more high-res glamor shots of the Weismann GT

Supercarmovies.com has released its latest mini feature film and the leading role is played by a relative unknown. You've seen Wiesmann pop up on Autoblog from time to time, most recently in Frankfurt when we caught the unveiling of the GT MF from the sidewalk. The company's staple car, the Wiesmann GT, is a blend of old world European styling that's been shrink wrapped around modern mechanicals. The doors are comically small, head room is not an available option and the hood is aircraft carrier long. But it's gorgeous in a way that modern designs just aren't thanks to safety regulations that ensure every mass produced motoring vehicle is a facsimile of the same design with tiny variations. Powered by a 4.8L V8 sourced from BMW producing 362 horsepower and 361 pound feet of torque, the relatively featherweight Wiesmann is certainly quick, but judging from its performance on the big screen, one gets the most of out of it by burbling around at idle for all to see.

Thanks to Supercarmovies.com for sending over some high-res eye candy of the Wiesmann GT, and you can check out a preview of the new video after the jump, or click here to watch it in full HD glory. We suggest full HD glory.

      Not to crazy about the 3rd Brake light placement, should have been able integrated into rear glass in my opinion but overall a nice design.

      I want this more than I want a real C-Type. And I have wanted a real C-Type for about 40 years!

      Easily the most sensual front end ever put on a car - at least from a male perspective:

      All-in-all this is a great looking car. However, I actually think the wheels are too big! I've never said anything like that before, is it sacrilege?

      It's just too classy a car to have such huge tires relatively speaking.

      Head on looks like a Jag.

      Headroom IS an option. You just have to check the box marked "roadster"...

      Oh man...this thing is hot.

      My wife was in Paris last week and form her I get a text message reading, "What car has a lizard motif?"

      Motif?

      After a good bit of interweb looking around and a host of questions for her, the last one being, "Does it look like an old Jag?", I was able to determine that it was a Wiesmann GT that she had found parked on a Parisian street.

      She then said that she wanted one, I texted back, "That's understandable."
