Erich Bitter is a German car builder. He used to love Italian designed cars but couldn't stand that they couldn't match the solidity of their German counterpart. To do better is to do better, so he started building cars. For inspiration he used designs from Italy and he made no secret of that. His Bitter SC was affectionately called the german 400i, the Ferrari 400i was the model for this design. These modifications were not cheap, the Bitter SC cost 128.000 guilders, for comparison, you could get the keys of a Ferrari 308 at the Ferrari dealer. This Bitter SC was first allowed on the road in 1981. The car came to the Netherlands in 2006 and has been completely restored. The car was repainted in its original color Salchi Rosso Rubino. The bordeaux red exterior was combined with a beige leather upholstered interior. The leather was supplied by Salt that was also responsible for supplying the leather to Maserati. The interior is largely original and still looks very well cared for. The rims, of course, could come from no other manufacturer than the German company Ronal. The bodywork looks good with correct fits and beautiful original sheet metal. The interior is also in very good condition. This is a very early Bitter SC, it is the 23rd in the series of 488. With right a very exclusive car. The technology was supplied by Opel and the Bitter is powered by a 3.0 six in-line which in this case is coupled to an automatic transmission. The engine and transmission fit perfectly with the GT character of the Bitter and even today make the car a smooth companion. The work on the car has been kept up to date with pictures and invoices which are of course with the car. The big advantage of a Bitter compared to competitors is that you drive a very exclusive car with rock solid and affordable technology on board. In terms of appearance, the car is not inferior to a Ferrari or Maserati from that time. In short, a very rare and exclusive German GT in good condition and in a beautiful color scheme.
