In a world full of somewhat dull SUVs, Wiesmann is showing up to the EV party with a very simple recipe.

That’s because, when all is said and done, this is just a rear-wheel-drive roadster with a soft-top.


But don’t let its Riviera-friendly looks deceive you into thinking this is all show and no go because the Thunderball has plenty of power to play with.

Thanks to its 680-hp bi-motor electric powertrain, the Wiesmann roadster can do 0-60 in just 2.9 seconds and has a range of 500km (310 miles).

Wiesmann was very active between the late 1990s and the early 2000s, but it then went on hiatus for a while, before making a comeback with the car you see here.

The best part about the Project Thunderball Wiesmann roadster is that it looks a lot like its ‘granddad’ – the 2009 MF5.

It has the same proportions, the same muscular shape and, crucially, the same unique front grille.

There’s another thing that stands out about the Project Thunderball and that’s the name.

It’s an obvious reference to 007 and that’s not by accident.

The company’s Instagram is littered with comparisons to the iconic James Bond flick, Thunderball.

Speaking of Instagram, Supercar Blondie’s Alex Hirschi actually had the chance to take a closer look at the car.

Check it out.

Production is not limited, and that means that anyone can buy it.

Provided you’ve got $320,000 lying around somewhere, that is.
