Weismann MF5 Roadster - Click above for high-res image

Wiesmann's made an all-out drop-top assault in 2009, beginning with the 367-hp V8-powered MF4 Roadster unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March. As reported earlier, the retrotastic automaker hailing from Dulmen, Germany is bringing another open-aired creation to the Frankfurt Motor Show, and it's finally released a teaser shot to whet our appetites ahead of the big day.

Powered by the BMW M5/M6-derived V10, Weismann says the 507-hp MF5 Roadster hits the magic 60 MPH mark in 3.9 seconds – the same as its fixed roof sibling – and can blast to a top speed of 192 mph.

Aside from the cloth roof, the body remains unchanged and all the standard equipment carries over to the Roadster, including the dual airbags, ABS and stability control. Pricing is expected to crest the $250,000 mark, but with Weismann only planning to produce 55 examples, we have little doubt they'll find their way into enthusiastic collector's garages. Make the jump for the official release.

      Very nice. I love the red as the accent color.

      Uh, that is one, nasty, ugly rear.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Not bad.

      Love the BBS CH-R wheels.

      Part of me wishes these cars had a fan-style grille more like the Austin Healey 100, than the vertical oval like the Jag C-type. It would be interesting to see one painted with a two-tone scallop on the sides, like a big Healey.

      The AC Cobra 427 lives on in this design.

      It's beautiful... But it looks light, so I imagine all that power goes up in smoke...

      still.... I want one...

        the Coupe version of this car, the Wiesmann MF5 GT has beaten a Porsche 997 GT3 RS in a track test driven by a guy who laped the Ring in a street legal Edo Competition 996 GT2 RSR in 7:15min some years ago... he claimed the car has brilliant handling but thanks to no driving aids it is real hard work for the driver to be realy quick with it but he likes that unpluged pure driving fun more than a easy to drive quick car thanks to millions of electronic gismos deleting drivers faults.
