It is underneath the svelte 1960s-inspired bodywork of the Weismann GT MF4 that the state-of-the-art epoxy-bonded aluminium tub hints at the performance potential on offer. Five years were spent developing the GT from the MF3 roadster, and the results were prodigious: a power-to-weight ratio brushing 300 bhp per tonne, thanks to a 4.8-litre BMW V8, 0–100 km/h in 4.6 seconds, and a top speed in excess of 270 km/h ‘Be in no doubt,’ exclaimed Evo magazine, ‘the Weismann is brutally quick.’
This GT was delivered in Germany in 2007 and presents in excellent condition today. Its bright red paintwork gleams beautifully, whilst the hand-stitched cream leather interior and quilted seats show minimal to no wear at all. Featuring matching cream instrument dials, red stitching, and its original Becker Grand Prix stereo system, it boats a tasteful specification that suits the car’s character perfectly.
Despite being entirely hand-built, the fit, finish, performance, and exclusivity of the Weismann GT make it a very serious proposition, and it would be an excellent alternative to a Porsche 911 Turbo or an Aston Martin DBS for someone desiring something a bit more unique. A tantalising combination of classical aesthetics underpinned by the finest engineering on offer from BMW—attributes worthy of the attentions of any collector.
