Spy Shots: Wiesmann Coupe prototype – Click above for high-res image gallery

Wiesmann, builder of exotic sport coupes that boast BMW power, has been working out a problem. The issue is that its sporty two-door MF5 and GT MF5 both featured V10 Teutonic muscle, but that engine has since been put to sleep. Apparently, they've now figured out what mill they want to place under their cars' long snouts. Spy photographers in Germany managed to capture a blacked-out Wiesmann GT MF5 taking a cruise and stopping for fuel.

Wiesmann have stated that even though the V10 has gone away, the MF5 will not. New versions will be produced utilizing an as-yet unannounced BMW engine. Our guess? The new 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that will be found in the next-generation BMW M5/M6. That would be a nice jump in power for the Wiesmann MF5, since the V10 was rated at 500 horsepower and the new twin-turbo V8 is rated closer to 560 hp.

      That thing needs a big inline six to go with the retro styling.

      Why does it seem like the rear wheel-gap is much larger when the car is parked?

      No such thing as a bad Weismann. Give me mine in BMW Cosmos Black Metallic and a V8.

      The sheet metal looks like it was formed with a meat hammer.
