Wiesmann will be bringing four new models to the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, all packing more punch than its previous renditions. The GT MF4 Coupe, GT MF5 Coupe, Roadster MF4 and Roadster MF5 will now sport BMW’s 4.4L V8 twin-turbo powerplant underneath the hood.

Previous to this announcements the Wiesmann MF4 and MF5 both used the 4.0-liter V8 from the BMW M3.

Performance will differ between the MF4 and MF5 with the MF4 delivering 407-hp while the MF5 will push out an incredible 555-hp. With the differing horsepower output, the MF4 will hit 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds, while the MF5 does it in a blistering 3.9 seconds.

The combination of BMW’s potent twin-turbo V8 powerplant in the MF5 makes it the most powerful vehicle Wiesmann has ever released.
