Isdera is a privately-run automaker based in a small workshop in Leonberg, Germany. Each high-performance sportscar is hand-built by a small team of craftsmen, and the only way to purchase an Isdera is to call the CEO directly. Each vehicle is custom built for its buyer, and a waiting period of six months is to be expected.

The company was founded in 1969, and its first vehicle, the Isdera Erator GTE, was first built in 1970. Other famous vehicles in the company's history are the 1983 Spyder 036i, the 1984 Imperator 108i and the 1986 Imperator 033i Spyder. Each model was unveiled in Geneva, Switzerland.

The most famous car in the automaker's history is the 1993 Isdera Commendatore 112i. This supercar weighs 1450 kg (3190 lb), has a 0-60 mph acceleration time of 4.7s and a top speed of 342 km/h (212 mph). The mid-engine, rear-wheel drive car is powered by a 408 PS (300 kW/402 hp) Mercedes-Benz 48-valve 6.0 L V12 engine and has a 6-speed manual transmission. The Commendatore has a low, sleek, bullet-shaped design and two gull-wing doors. A velocity-sensitive electronic chassis lowers the car three inches (76 mm) under high speeds to improve handling. The car sold for US$466,000. The Commendatore 112i has been featured in the video game Need for Speed II.

An estimated 70 cars have been sold by Isdera since 1983. Projects since 1993 have been kept top secret by Isdera. The company's most recent automotive ventures and sales figures have not been released to the general public.
