1993 Isdera Commendatore 112I news, pictures, and information
The Isdera Commendatore 112i was built in 1993 as a one-off prototype. The hand-built high-performance supercar was built in Leonberg, Germany and was based on designs produced by Eberhard Schulz and his sons. The mid-engined car is powered by a 400 horsepower 6-liter V-12 Mercedes-Benz engine. Many of the mechanics are borrowed from Mercedes-Benz while the styling drew inspiration from Porsches racing program, such as the Porsche 968 and 917. Zero-to-sixty is accomplished in 4.7 seconds while top speed is achieved at 212 mph. Power is sent to the rear wheels by a six-speed manual gearbox. To improve handling at speed, the vehicle has been equipped with a velocity-sensitive electronic chassis which lowers the car three inches. The design is elegant and the gull-wing doors are futuristic.
