At the 2011 Geneva Motor Show specialist German sportscar manufacturer Wiesmann unveiled the Weismann Spyder.

Like all Wiesmann's it has a hint of classic British sportscar design. But for the Spyder the most obvious features are its extremely compact dimensions and minimalist bodywork. In all honesty the Wiesmann Spyder isn't a very nice looking vehicle. In fact it's fairly very ugly. But then it wasn't built to win beauty competitions. It was built to put a cheek-burning smile on the driver bug-splattered face.

Powering the Wiesmann Spyder is a BMW-sourced V8 mounted in a mid-front position. The engine produces 420 horsepower, and in such a light car that equates to a 0-62 mph (100km/h) time of under 4 seconds, and a top speed of around 180 mph.

According to Wiesmann the Spyder is the most extreme car they've ever produced - and it is, by a long way. And while the car is initially presented as a design study to assess customer feedback, General Manager of the company Friedhelm Wiesmann, stated that if there was enough interest then they'd put it into production some time after 2012.

Hopefully they'll find the time to 'reconsider' some of the aesthetics by then.
