See the Isdera Imperator 108i in action at Spa

Some of our young readers probably haven’t heard about the Isdera Imperator 108i. It all started in the 80s when Mercedes-Benz created a concept by the name of CW311. They didn’t launch a production version of this concept but allowed one of the firm’s ex design engineers by the name of Eberhard Schulz to produce the car under a different company. He found Isdera and named the car Imperator 108i. He made only 30 cars between 1984 and 1993, with the most powerful version featuring a V8 6.0-liter AMG engine unleashing 420 bhp which enabled a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 5.7s and a 189 mph (305 km/h) top speed.
