About Isdera

Isdera is a privately run automaker based in a small workshop in Hildesheim, Germany. The company was formerly based in Leonberg, Germany. Each high-performance sports car 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 by Eberhard Schulz, and its first vehicle, the Isdera Erator GTE, was 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 at the Geneva Motor Show, 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 was named in tribute to Enzo Ferrari, who became known as Il Commendatore or "the monk of Maranello" and "the pope of mechanical sport." The car 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.

Car Insurance Comparison – Why It is Important

Knowing what to look for when making a car insurance comparison is getting to be more important all of the time. Most, if not all states require motorists to have some level of auto insurance.

But now, states like Mississippi that do not have insurance databases are going to have them, and there must be proof of insurance before the automobile can get its tags renewed. According to the Jackson Free Press, the Mississippi legislature passed a new law in mid-March of 2011 requiring that motorists have more than just an insurance card, but actually have the insurance and be in the database. No insurance means no tags. This will prevent motorists from signing up for insurance and then canceling the policy to save money and still have the card.

With this becoming more common, it is more important now than ever to know how to make a car insurance comparison. Everyone wants to save money on auto insurance, and if that is the name of your game, you will want to get the absolute minimum that your state requires. That does not necessarily mean that you are going to have great insurance, though, because it will most likely just be liability. If your car still has some value to it, this may not be the best for you. If your car is totaled, you will have no way to recover the loss.

If you are already covered under a health insurance plan, it may not be necessary to get additional medical coverage with your auto insurance. If not, this could be crucial. Other additions that you will have to consider include towing, comprehensive coverage, theft, extra liability, car rental and a number of other options your agent will be happy to show you.
