The body has captivatingly distinct, curved lines and an unmistakeable look. The front end features the large radiator grille that is typical of the Wiesmann cars and circular xenon headlights. Viewed from the side, distinctive beading emphasises the vehicle's agility. The neat, dynamic shape of the clamshell rear with twin exhaust further enhances the Roadster MF4's athletic appearance. The sensational appearance of this pedigree sports car however is not solely derived from a design intended to please the eye: Aerodynamics, perfect weight distribution and details crafted by hand underline the technical perfection of it's development.
