Those with god memories remember the Wiesmann in its early days when it was powered by BMW M3’s engine. Then as they’ve been growing and making new models, sort of, they went for the 5.0 liter V10 out of the BMW M5. And now that the Bavarians are waving goodbye to this magnificent powertrain replacing it with the twin-turbo V8, Wiesmann too is doing the same.

They could have gone for another engine from another brand, but they stayed loyal to the company that supported them from the beginning.

The 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8 which also powers the current X6M and X5M and will soon power the new M5 and M6, can  be tuned for different outputs. In the SUVs mentioned above, it generates 555 bhp, but the word is that for the next M5 it will deliver nearly 100 ho more.

And so is the case with the Wiesmann. Based on the model you order it can have from 400 up to 550 hp. This unit is also much more efficient that the outgoing V10, which is a plus, but take into account that it is more expensive as well which will result in a price hike for the German Lizard.
