Re: What is the name of this car?

Had to look ... the second hand list has prices from 100,000 - 200,000 ...Euro!

If I had that sort of money to burn, no...I don't think I'd spend it on a car...

Maybe a small island perhaps ? But not a car...

I agree. Still a cute car though and one can dream.

Re: What is the name of this car?

Definitely a Weismann, very nice, good quality hand built engineering using BMW M6 running gear with approval from BMW. Quality but seriously expensive

Depends which one you get... The convertible Roadster uses a 3.2 litre 6 cylinder, out of the old BMW M3, the older coupe MF4 uses the 4.8 litre V8 from the 750i/X5 4.8i etc, whilst the latest coupe MF5 is the one with the 500+bhp 5 litre V10 from the latest generation M5/M6.

The reviews I've seen have all been very complimentary, particularly about quality of the whole car, and the brutal acceleration

Re: What is the name of this car?

wow, I am a girl, and I could have told you the name of the car
In the past summer, I heard a huge huge noise outside my window, ran, and guess what I saw? look at the pics. There was about 50 of the most stunning cars, iddling and making the most stunning noise. So, I grab my camera and snapped them, then...one by one, they revvvved up, and sped off into the mountains...past us. my whole village was just about on the pavements, watching...big attraction of the day!
I was so crazy about the car, that I have been begging ever since for it...but hubby now has to work another 20 years to gather the monies...
Enjoy the pics!
