Ultra-Rare Isdera Imperator Emerges For Some Track Time

Mercedes-AMG

Powered by an AMG V8, just 30 examples of the Isdera Imperator were built. This is one of them.

Although many of you may have never heard of it, the Isdera Imperator 108i is a thing of beauty. Built from 1984 until 1993, it’s a German-built supercar that evolved from the Mercedes-Benz CW311 concept that premiered in 1978. Designed by a guy named Eberhard Schulz, he received permission from M-B to build the car under his own brand, Isdera, when he branched out on his own. This particular Imperator is powered by an AMG-sourced 6.0-liter V8 that’s good for 420 horsepower.

It can go from 0-62 mph in 5.7 seconds and has a top speed of nearly 190 mph. And yes, it has gullwing doors and a unique rear-view periscope. All told, just 30 examples were built, and our friend Marchettino was on hand at SPA-Francorchamps to catch one in action.
