Wiesmann has finally revealed its rather Batmobile-looking GT MF 5 sports coupe. Powered by a 5.0-liter V10 engine outsourced from the latest BMW M5, the car takes only 3.9 seconds to jump from zero to 60mph.

As you can see on the pictures, the Wiesmann GT MF 5 features a stiff aluminum monocoque with a front-mounted mid-engine chassis layout. The powerful motor is mated to a seven-speed sequential gearbox transmitting the power to the rear wheels.

Compared to the standard Wiesmann GT, the MF 5 has a lowered ground clearance and wider track but is 100kg heavier.

The car is expected to go into production in the second half of 2008. Price is yet to be announced.

Bugatti unveiled yesterday at the Frankfurt Auto Show the Veyron Pur Sang, a model that covers no paint and is made out of aluminium and carbon. This you already knew, but what you didn’t know is that the shiny Veyron will come in a very limited edition.
Each will be priced at 1.4 million euro.

Well, as you expected is “just a bit” more expensive than its brother. So, if you like carbon and aluminium hurry up!
