The Wiesmann MF5 comes back to focus. Initially, the super exclusive roadster was powered by the 5.0 liter V10 powerplant found in the previous generation E60 M5. The newer MF4 and MF5 models are now using the V8 twin-turbo engine from BMW. The Wiesmann brothers have been working with BMW for the past 20 years, taking some of the best technology from the Munich-based automaker and design their cars around them.

The level of luxury and customization is being taken to an extreme, turning the MF4 and MF5 roadsters into collectors’ items. At the moment, there are 30 copies of the MF5 Roadster and 25 of the closed-up GT model.

Initially, the company offered the MF5 in metallic colors, either white, silver or black. Following a trend seen in the past year, Wiesmann decided to dress up their MF5 with a matte black coat. The transformation takes places both inside and outside the car. Beside the obvious exterior panels being painted in the beautiful matte black, the car gets the “Batman” look from the inside as well with contrast stitching.

Blacked out wheels complete the “bat” look of the MF5.

The engine power was raised by 100 horsepower to a whopping 600 ponies that takes the 3,075 lbs vehicle to 62 mph in just 3.5 seconds. In less than 10 seconds, the MF5 also reaches 124 mph and has a top speed of 193 mph.

Without the matte black coat, the MF5 starts at around 184,000 euros, but expect to pay extra for the exclusive and unique paint.
