Isdera AG or Ingenieurbüro für Styling, Design und Racing (English: Engineering Company for Styling, Design and Racing) is a privately run German specialty automaker and design service provider based in Saarwellingen, with a design studio in Munich and a design subsidiary in Shanghai, China. The company was founded and formerly based in Leonberg, Germany. Each high-performance sports car is hand-built by a small team of craftsmen, and the only way to purchase a brand new Isdera was to call the CEO directly. Each vehicle is custom built for its original buyer, and a waiting period of twelve months is to be expected.

History

The first vehicle designed by Eberhard Schulz appeared in 1969, named Erator GTE. In 1978, the Mercedes-Benz CW311 concept car was presented, engineered by Schulz and promoted by the b&b company.[2]

Isdera was founded in 1982 in Leonberg, Germany. Its first car, the Spyder 033, was presented in the same year. Some other vehicles in the company's history are the 1984 Isdera Imperator 108i, 1985 Spyder 033-16 and the 1987 Spyder 036i. Each model was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland.

In 1993, Isdera designed the Commendatore 112i, which weighed 1,450 kg (3,197 lb). It could accelerate from 0 to 97 km/h in 4.0 seconds, and had a top speed of 342 km/h (213 mph). The car had a mid-mounted Mercedes-Benz 6.0 L V12 engine generating 408 PS (300 kW; 402 hp) and a 6-speed manual transmission. The Commendatore 112i had many advanced and unique features such as two sets of gull-wing doors, a velocity-sensitive electronic chassis that lowers the car at high speeds, and an automatic air brake. The 112i was featured in the 1997 video game Need for Speed II.

An estimated 70 cars have been sold by Isdera since 1993. Projects since 1993 have been kept top secret by Isdera. The company's most recent automotive ventures and sales figures have not been released to the general public.

In 1999, the Commendatore 112i was modified by a Swiss businessman and was now called the Silver Arrow C112i and was powered by a Mercedes-Benz, 612 PS (450 kW) V12. The car's top speed was recorded at 370 km/h (230 mph) during testing. At the time of its introduction, the Silver Arrow was the only car in the world to feature an automatically lifting airbrake.

The Silver Arrow prototype was offered for sale on eBay in October 2005 for US$3 million, but was not sold. At the time of the auction, the car was located in Switzerland.

In 2006, Isdera introduced the Autobahnkurier AK116i, a controversially styled vehicle powered by two Mercedes-Benz V8 engines – one for each axle – from the W126 series 500 SE, and reminiscent of a 1930s touring car.

In 2016, Isdera bought back the Silver Arrow C112i from the Swiss businessman, restored the car back to its original form and name and made appearances at motor shows. On 13 February 2021, the Isdera Commendatore 112i was sold at auction at Sotheby's France in Paris for 1,113,125.[3]

In 2018, Isdera introduced the Isdera Commendatore GT[4] at the Auto China 2018, an electric sports car with gull-wing doors.
