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.

The Varying Drivers License Requirements Around the World

Minimum driving ages, the number of passengers young drivers can have with them at any time, the times of day that drivers under the age of 18 can drive…

These all vary depending on where young motorists are driving. They vary, even, across the United States.

For instance, in Maine, motorists under the age of 18 aren’t allowed to have any passengers with them as they drive for the first 180 days after they obtain their licenses. In Alabama, motorists under the age of 18 can have one passenger with them.

And that’s just one example of the differences in driving license requirements from one part of the country to the next. The differences are even more pronounced when comparing one country to another. Minimum driving ages vary widely across the world. While most states in the United States allow youngsters to earn their learner’s permits at the age of 15, many other countries require their residents to be much older before they get behind the wheel of a car.
