The Wiesmann GT mixes classic styling with modern day technology.

The Dülmen based company have developed the new GT with knowledge gained from running a similar car at various motorsport events, one of the toughest being the 24 hour race around the Nürburgring.

Where as the styling takes a cue from the sports cars of yesteryear, everything underneath couldn’t be more different. The car uses an aluminum monocoque chassis with a glass-fibre composite body, proving to be both lightweight and rigid.

Wiesmann have relieved the BMW 7-series of its 367 bhp 4.8L V8 engine for the GT, making it capable of propelling to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds, and onto a very pleasant top speed of 174 mph. The friendly Bavarians also donate such components as the six speed (or optional SMG) transmission, as well as all the electronic safety equipment that you’d find on an everyday BMW.

The company founders, Friedhelm and Martin Wiesmann are in talks with BMW to use their award winning 507 bhp 5L V10 engine from the M5 and M6 .

Should be ballistic.
