The production of Project Gecko will start next year, in 2020, and will be a “pure drivers’ cars” according to the company. This new car will be front mid-engined and rear-wheel drive, but most importantly will have a perfect 50:50 weight distribution.

“This last true independent manufacturer of German sports cars is back and has an exciting future to look forward to,” said Roheen Berry, Owner and Chief Executive of Wiesmann. “When we set out on this journey we said we wanted to re-engineer an icon and we are on track to do exactly that.”

Just like the model that precedes it, the Wiesmann MF5, Project Gecko will feature a distinctive design and many luxury features. Basically, it’s a modern take of the MF5 with the latest lightweight technologies, among other elements.

After three years of hard work, the Wiesmann team is on the verge of revealing the fruit of their labours. More info and details will be given in the coming months but the waiting list is now open.
