One sinister V-10.
Wiesmann is one of those boutique car manufacturers that are able to survive because of their nostalgic styling and modern powerplants. They are unique, powerful, and rare, but none are like this.
Schwabenfolia, the car wrapping specialists in Germany, have taken a Wiesmann Roadster and given it a complete matte black makeover. The Roadster, number 9 out of 30 custom-made models was originally outfitted in silver metallic paint. A new matte black car wrap was installed by Scwabenfolia on all body components including the gas tank cover. All of the original Wiesmann logos were also replaced with contrasting chrome units.
The wheels and tires were also replaced to match the new matte black color scheme. New BBS F1 wheels in 10 x 20 front and 11.5 x 20 rear fitments were installed with 285/30 ZR 20 and 325/25 ZR 20 tires for better grip. Each one-piece forged wheel was given a coat of black for a sinister look. Behind the front wheels sit new Brembo six-piston, 380 x 32 mm brakes while the rear uses four-piston calipers and 380 x 28 mm discs.
Wiesmann has been using BMW engines to power their vehicles for quite some time. In the Wiesmann Roadster, a BMW V-10, the same as in the M5, was used. Swiss tuner, Dähler, was given the task of upgrading the engine. The 5.0-liter was given a new exhaust and intake system along with engine and transmission tunes to boost power all the way up to 600 horses. The added power ensures the Roadster is able to reach a top speed of 199 mph, accelerate to 62 mph in a mere 3.5 seconds, and break 124 mph in less than ten.
Schwabenfolia has not released the availability of the custom Wiesmann Roadster. The German company does offer a large variety of car wraps for vehicles in a number of custom finishes.
