Morgan vs Wiesmann
The old enemies meet again. Morgan fights for England; Wiesmann for Germany. Let battle commence...

The Wiesmann might be something of an unknown quantity, but it wastes zero time impressing. At a ripe 160,000 euros, it's also seriously expensive. Like everything else these days, you can blow pots of cash personalising your Wiesmann, and buyers at this level seem more than happy to drop their trousers in exchange for the likes of - and this is a random sampling - three-layer ‘red rocket' metallic paint (3,109 euros), fancy BBS forged alloys (shaves 7kg off the weight, costs 5,210 euros), or what Wiesmann calls a ‘Sound Concept 4' audio package (lots of speakers and woofers, 2,899 euros).
Needless to say, the spec of our test car - colour-coded grille, wheels and interior - couldn't be more German if it had a mullet, some anthemic soft rock pouring out of its speakers and a bratwurst shoved up its exhaust. Until I clapped eyes on this thing, I didn't realise you could make a car look like a transvestite. But you can.
