Wiesmann files for bankruptcy
Wiesmann has been in business since 1993, building retro-futuristic sports cars with engines and transmissions from BMW. According to a report from Motor Talk in Germany, the Dülmen-based outfit had only been producing about 200 vehicles per year, with its most potent models, the 547-horsepower GT MF5 and the track-ready GT MF4-CS (pictured above), presenting a unique dose of performance that is difficult to come by. It's a shame to see them in dire financial straits, but we don't yet know whether the company is staring down liquidation or just reorganization.
