Click above for a high-res gallery of the Wiesmann MF4 Roadster

Since its inception back in 1985, Wiesmann has been busy building beautiful retro-themed coupes and convertibles, and to celebrate its 20th anniversary (of what, exactly, we're not sure) the automaker has just released its MF4 Roadster at the Geneva Motor Show. We love the old-school looks, especially the soft top that collapses on the rear parcel shelf as it does on classic British and German roadsters. The running gear, though, is thoroughly modern and highlighted by a modified version of the BMW M3's 4.0-liter V8, in this case tuned to put out 367 horsepower.

If you want one, you'd better act fast. Wiesmann only plans to assemble between 250 and 350 units this year, and they are only available in Europe for now.

      Why would you want to do this for a show car? It loses all of the detailing and just becomes a black, rolling mass. In the press shots it looks wicked, but on the floor it looks like a Rorschach test.

        Because if you haven't yet made flush the headlights - which look like genital warts - and the rear fender-flare edges - which look like 1970's TVR (at best) - black is the best cover-up.

        I still want one because - but not the warts.

      So they de-tuned the engine...? That engine normally puts out 414 hp...
        • 6 Years Ago
        Haha... I was just thinking the same thing. Lets take a really great engine made by BMW... and make it worse. Yeah, thats a good idea.

        I know man if they took that 414 hp engine and put a small turbo or supercharger on it, it would be fire.

      Wonder if it has an infrapink logo on it...

      'course, the only problem is that all of the driver controls are black, labeled in black, which light up black to let you know you've pressed them.

      And of course I have to say: How much blacker can it be? None... It could be none blacker.

      Zaphod's attention however was elsewhere. His attention was riveted on the ship standing next to Hotblack Desiato's limo. His mouths hung open.
      "That," he said, "that ... is really bad for the eyes ..."
      Ford looked. He too stood astonished.
      It was a ship of classic, simple design, like a flattened salmon, twenty yards long, very clean, very sleek. There was just one remarkable thing about it.
      "It's so ... black!" said Ford Prefect, "you can hardly make out its shape ... light just seems to fall into it!"
      Zaphod said nothing. He had simply fallen in love.
      The blackness of it was so extreme that it was almost impossible to tell how close you were standing to it.
