Wiesmann MF4 & MF5 launched on the Chinese car market
Published on May 31, 2012 by Tycho de Feijter
The famous German sportscarmaker Wiesmann has officially arrived on the Chinese car market. The brand opened its first dealer in Beijing in late April and will sell three cars: the MF4, the MF4-S and the MF-5. Chinese buyers however will have to wait a bit when they order one, building a Wiesmann takes between 4 and 6 months.
The MF4 (left) comes with a twin-turbo 4.4 V8 that poops out 407hp and 600nm, mated to a 6-speed paddle-shift transmission. The MF4-S comes with a 4.0 V8 with 420hp and 400nm, mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch paddle-shift transmission. Price for all this pretty: 2.95 million yuan for the MF4 and 2.98 million for the MF4-S. Wiesmann sources all its engines from BMW.
Fine cars those MF4’s but this is the King. The mighty-mad Wiesmann MF5 comes with a 4.4 twin-turbo V8, powered up to 547hp and 680nm, good for a 319km/h top speed. This we like, very much. Price however ain’t funny: 3.85 million yuan please! Waiting again is 4 to 6 months. Customers can personalize the MF5 as much as they can, price can go up all the way to 5 million yuan, so says Wiesman.
