Wiesmann has long been forbidden fruit of the very tastiest variety for car fans here in the US, and the boutique German sports car maker continues to concoct varieties of its GT that we long to drive. For this year's Geneva show, that means this flaming orange Wiesmann GT MF4-CS.

It's the last two letters of that name that are the most stirring, as they signify that this is the raciest-yet "Clubsport" version of the GT. With just 25 examples being built worldwide, the GT MF4-CS wraps a sparse interior with the same lascivious bodywork that we've come to expect from Wiesmann. The cockpit has shed such niceties as navigation, air conditioning and even a radio, in search of a lower curb weight (down to 2,976 pounds, unladen). The interior also features an integrated roll cage, racing seats and a fire extinguisher, so it's ultimate track aspirations should be clear from the first time you get behind the wheel.

As ever, the motive force of this Wiesmann comes courtesy of a BMW engine and gearbox; in this case its front-mounted, naturally aspirated, 4.0-liter V8 making 420 horsepower, and connected to your choice of a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Wiesmann specifies a top speed of 182 miles per hour, and a 0-62 mph sprint of 4.4 seconds. Further, large, 275-section rear rubber (245 at the front) on 19-inch wheels and a locking differential should help to keep all of that power flowing to the tarmac.

You'll find a full press release regarding the Wiesmann GT MF4-CS as you continue on below, and galleries of both live and stock images for your happy browsing, as well.

INTERIOR – ACHIEVE MORE WITH LIGHTNESS

The significantly slimmed-down interior is an essential element of the outstanding racetrack qualities of the Wiesmann GT MF4-CS. you have no need for a GpS system, air conditioning or a radio when you're on the track. but you want maximum vision. and maximum safety, which is provided, for example, by the roll bars and the integrated, quick-grab fire extinguisher. So at the same time, the Wiesmann Gt mf4-CS can also be used as a complete – and uniquely formed – road vehicle. Everything about the Wiesmann Gt mf4-CS awakens your thirst for performance, curves, speed and raw power – from the sporty car seat shells with feed-through seatbelt all the way to the clear and straightforward controls.

      I\'m confused, AB, is the Audi RS3 forbidden fruit or this car? Clean up your headline writing and stop reusing the same cliche within 3 posts.

      What we have here is the XK120 that's been left in the closet too long with a blind designer.

      I would honestly rather have one of these than that LaFerrari abomination. Looks aside, it's just more of a driver's car than a technical exercise.

      While this is better looking the Morgan Aero coupe's interior is light years ahead of this.

      Not my favorite car out there, but definitely one of my favorite motors (modified S62 I believe). On a different note, are those BBS RI-D's?

        It's an S65, just like in the MF4-S Roadster and GT.

      Reminds me somewhat of the 'Kellison' fiberglass cars of the 1950s.
