New Wiesmann track car using S65

http://jalopnik.com/#!5774352/wiesma...ubby/gallery/1

Looks like a new car to compete with the dedicated track day cars. Not exactly the most beautiful thing i've seen....

Is it Monte Carlo Blue??

Definitely not MCB. Closer to LSB in my opinion, but not quite the same. Wiesmann already uses the S65 in the MF4-S Roadster and Coupe, BTW.

What I don't understand is why the specs of this car seem so off. 0-60 in 4 seconds is slow for a 2000 lb car with 420 hp. It's probably spinning the tires like crazy, but still at Atom V8 will do it in under 3 seconds, for example.

It says "well under 4 seconds" in the article.

That looks like it might be Laguna Seca blue. It also looks like it might be a fun car to drive...

Ok, well I was going by what I read yesterday on Autoblog. Probably a misprint. I didn't actually read the jalopnick Geneva coverage.

Traction limited, for sure.

Pretty cool aero tricks too, looks like it has a plank splitter, flat bottom and a nice big diffuser
