Not all the best supercar, manufactured by well-known brands. In fact, some of the best supercars created by the mysterious and bizarre brands or tuners from Europe or the United States.
One of them is the Isdera Commendatore 112i, a supercar that was born two decades ago, called mysterious and strange because it only has some pictures that had been documented, and only one unit prototype was successfully created.

Isdera itself, is a small auto company based in Germany, and although not as big as the Bugatti or Lamborghini, Isdera has managed to create a stir (though not big enough) in the world of supercars.
Return to the car, Isdera Commendatore 112i is the fruit of thought of the owner and lead engineer of Isdera, named Eberhard Schulz. And Commendatore 112i was first debuted in 1993, and each unit is planned to be sold at a price of $450,000. The prices were very high at that time.

Unfortunately, Isdera itself bankrupt later, and only 1 unit Commendatore (which means Commander in Italian) were successfully produced by Schulz and his son. For its design, Isdera designed the Commendatore 112i similar to the Porsche 917, perhaps because of the rear overhang and its long tail.

Commendatore 112i has a weight just 1,450 kg and can accelerate from 0-96 kph in just 4.7 seconds, and has topspeed about 342 km/h. This is thanks to the performance of a Mercedes-Benz V12 engine with a capacity of 6,000 cc, which 'only' capable of producing about 402 hp (that's small figure for a V12 engine) and combined with 6 speed manual transmission system.

But the main advantages of the Commendatore is the car's technology, which has spent up to €4 million for its RnD. Like 2 pairs of gull-wing door type, its chassis is able to go up and down depending on the speed with an electronic system, and the automatic air brake, first in the world.
