The car, built around an aluminium monocoque, also has an extandable wing to improve balance and handling at high speeds, as well as integrated side-impact protection, dual-stage driver and passenger airbags, anti-lock brakes and traction control.

Wiesmann also promises that the car has been built for perfect driver ergonomics, with all the controls within easy reach. No pictures have been released, though; the images here are of the GT MF5 and MF4 Roadster.

Only 55 Wiesmann Roadster MF5s will be built, costing 189,500 euros (£163,000).
