2011 Wiesmann Spyder Concept at Geneva
The Wiesmann Spyder design study is based on the Wiesmann brothers’ early designs, though it also incorporates their many years of experience in sports car construction. It demonstrates the sports car manufacturer’s receptiveness to trends because many Wiesmann fans have approached the company founders in recent years with requests for an extremely purist model.
The car concept is powerful, ultra-light and purist, the Wiesmann Spyder Concept is the essence of Wiesmann’s philosophy. Wiesmann showcased the design study of a two-seater, extremely purist, convertible sports car at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. The two-seater has no doors or windscreen and is the most extreme Wiesmann ever built.
