As you know by now, us at BMWBLOG are not only bimmer fans, but also huge car lovers and we made a point that every auto show we attend, to snap photos of some of the most beautiful, interesting and exciting vehicles displayed.

Attending an European auto show, gave us the opportunity to see some cars that are not available for the U.S. market. Our first stop, the Wiesmann stand where the MF5 Roadster has been displayed.

Wiesmann MF 5 Roadster is powered by the same engine found in the BMW M5: 5.0 liter V10 powerplant which outputs 500 horsepower. The roadster runs from o to 62 mph in only 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 193 mph.

wiesemann mf5 5 655x438 Frankfurt Auto Show: Wiesmann GT MF5 powered by a BMW engineWith the same 500bhp 5.0-litre V10 as an M5 Wiesmann likens the Roadster MF5 to a wild animal. And while it weighs little more than a well-fed heffer (at 1395kg) it certainly has the potential to display a predatory instinct out on the road – the 0-62mph sprint is completed in 3.9 seconds, before it roars on to a 193mph top speed. Wiesmann MF5 weighs 1,395 kg (3,075 lbs).

The hand-crafted interior design screams of luxury, combined with an old-school approach that makes the MF5 so unique. The Wiesmann Roadster also uses BMW’s 7-Speed SMG sequential gearbox with paddle shifters.

Wiesmann Roadster MF5 comes with a hefty price: £168,790 ($274,271)
