German sportscar maker Wiesmann has announced it's bringing the GT MF4-CS to say "Tag" to the world at the Geneva Motor Show. The last two characters in that letterlicious name stand for "Club Sport," making this the stripped-down track-day version of the Wiesmann GT MF4-S – that being the Sport version of the plain-old GT MF4. Unfortunately, the new Wiesmann will not be bound for Canada, but its sexy shape can be admired from abroad.
Now that we're clear on that, let's also be clear that we know nothing more about it. Its base vehicle, the 1,367 kg (3,014 pound) GT MF4-S, uses a V8 with 420 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque and takes 4.4 seconds to get to 100 km/h from a standstill. It offers the choice of a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and it has a locking rear diff.
The Club Sport treatment should make things go faster in more ways than one, since Wiesmann says there will only be 25 made. We'll be on the floor in Geneva to take a look at one of them; there's a three-sentence press release below to entertain you in the meantime.

Wiesmann GT MF4-CS will be presented in Geneva
2013-02-22 -- The Sports cars manufacturer Wiesmann from Dülmen presents a world premiere at the international motor show in Geneva. The Wiesmann GT MF4-CS is the club sport version of the Wiesmann GT MF4-S and will be available in a limited edition run of 25 cars. Thanks to an uncompromising approach to weight reduction and pure performance-oriented racing elements, it offers unprecedented opportunities for achieving the best times on racetracks around the world – but of course, the GT MF4-CS also cuts a good figure on curvy country roads.
