Boutique sportscar manufacturer Wiesmann has been fairly quiet in recent years, so it’s a relief to see a return to form for 2022 with a stunning new model. Dubbed ‘Project Thunderball’, the latest from the German automaker is an all-electric convertible — a first for the marque.
The signature triangular Wiesmann grille found on the nose of the retro-styled droptop is nothing new, but the car’s twin electric rear-mid mounted motors — sending 680 hp and 1,100 Nm of torque to the rear wheels — certainly are. Weighing in at 1,775 kg (light for an EV) thanks to the use of an aluminium space frame and carbon fibre/alloy bodywork, the car is capable of sprinting from 0 to 100 km in just 2.9 seconds. Weismann says the range of Project Thunderball is up to 500 km thanks to its 800V high-voltage battery with 92kWh capacity.
The interior is equally impressive, with fine leather seats, carbon fibre details, hand-shaped wood veneers, and premium metal finishes enhancing the feeling of luxury. Every Project Thunderball example will be hand-crafted in Weismann’s factory in Dülmen, Westphalia, and is available for order now with pricing starting at €300,000.
