Don't think so, don't Bugattis have an inverted horseshoe shape for the grille?

It's a Wiesman MF3 Roadster, made in Germany... it was featured on Top Gear a couple of years back (6th season) as part of a review of classic British designs that aren't British Big grin.

Phenomenally unoriginal styling concept too, when you take a peek at the XK140/150 series of cars. It lacks elegance, taste and refinement. Just what you'd expect if you supplied a bunch of squarehead mechanics with some grainy photos of an XK150 and said "I vant zis built mit chust za richt styling und za verticalisch grille bars !"

Just kidding everyone....it's satire.

No prob. You have a road test of it in episode 3, season 6, pitched against a TVR. Should be a few clips on YouTube.  Smile

I recall this car being reviewed recently on Top Gear -current (new) season in the USA. Believe this car has BMW engine, etc.

When will people realize that obnoxious rims on classically styled automobiles are just WRONG?! That would look badass if it weren't for those goofy rims that belong on a '94 Caprice at 43rd and Calumet...

Not that I'll be buying, unfortunately, but just in case my Euromillions numbers come up, has anyone any idea of the price? I tried Googling it, but could only find one site that referred to the price, and that was "Not available".

That means about 260,000 euro here . . . (only joking, but it would be more, given our greedy governmnet and their taxes).

Still, I can dream . . .

Funny (or not) that it's our American friends who don't like this European sport car style... yeah, I know... it's way too small... cars has to be biiiiiiiiig with a huge motor  silly 

I actually like the Wiesmann  thumbsup
