Bitter CD – 1973


Ex-racing driver Erich Bitter produced cars in Germany (and later Austria) from 1973 after the failure of a joint venture with Italian outfit Construzione Automobili Intermeccanica of Turin. Entrepreneurial Erich’s first self-build venture was the Bitter CD, a splendid three-door fastback sports coupe with a long, sloping rear hatch based on the Opel Diplomat platform.
