Isdera Comes Alive With New Commendatore GT Electric Gullwing Coupe

Isdera has unveiled the Commendatore GT ahead of its debut at Auto China.

Looking rather impressive, the model is a sleek gullwing coupe which features an electric powertrain. The company hasn’t said much about the car but we can see it has a distinctive front fascia with a carbon fiber spoiler and LED-infused headlights.

The car also has aerodynamic side skirts, a unique greenhouse and a rounded rear end. Overall, it measures 4920mm (16.1 feet) long, 1950mm (6.4 feet) wide and 1290mm (4.2 feet) tall with a wheelbase that spans 2820mm (9.2 feet).

The cabin is undeniably luxurious as it features two-tone leather seats, carbon fiber trim and metallic accents. The car also has a flat-bottomed steering wheel, a digital instrument cluster and a large infotainment system. Another interesting features is the gear selector which is located on a panel which juts out of the center console.

Motivation is provided by a massive 105 kWh battery pack which feeds two electric motors. This setup gives the all-wheel drive model a combined maximum output of 804 hp (600 kW / 815 PS) and 1060 Nm (781 lb-ft) of torque.

In terms of performance, the 1750 kg (3858 lbs) Commendatore GT can accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.7 seconds and 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) in 9.8 seconds. Isdera says the model can hit a top speed of 302 km/h (187 mph) but they limited the car to 250 km/h (155 mph).

Speaking of performance, the Commendatore GT will be able to travel up to 500 km (310 miles) on a single charge according to the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP). When the battery is depleted, drivers can give the model an 80% charge in just 35 minutes.

Production will reportedly be limited to two units and we should find out more about the car later this week.

Thanks to Cristian for the tip!

    Pretty sure a user here tipped you guys off about this thing…..or not. Anyway, nice car. I’m not sure how many people remember the old model though.

      I do, it was in a car magazine that I bought in the 90s when I was a freshman in college lol.

        I remember it from the 1980s. It had a periscope.

    2 units?

      Talk about exclusivity.

  • Six Thousand Times

    A little bit Tesla-y?

  • Borgward, Gumpert, Saleen and now Isdera, more brands are taken by anonymous Chinese company who is hoping to inject some credibility to their own portofolio.

    I would wait until these brands are successful. So far all of them disappoint me.

      Vector Motors is probably next. Who’s going to bat an eye when supposedly dead companies rise from the grave?

      • I wonder what Gerard Wiegert up to these days, pretty sure there is some Chinese company would like to have Vector brand.

      VOLVOVOLVO VOLVO VOLVO xHAMSTER.. vOLVO Volvo

      • Well to be fair this isn’t like Volvo. These people already had a car and they need credible name to market it and then bought rights or even the whole company. While the original company had nothing to do with it.

    Looks nice.

  • AnklaX

    I remember the Commendatore 112i. That thing looked crazy.

    Hope they make a full comeback.

    Soooooo bland. Where are the designers in the process? In the bar?

  • Christian

    That was about time! Now I’m relaxed and not triggered… 🙂

  • NOT BAD. ONLY TWO?

    Not as distinctive as the old -very coool – ones but pretty nonetheless. (Alpine A110 GT’s big sister..?)

    Now, while this may be a nice looking car, it’s not Isdera at all. I loved the old Commendatore, someone owned one around here. One extreme beast. This new model looks way too generic, especially the front could be a Tesla.
    And no word about that other Model called EX5 Pro? Looks like a mix of Mazda and (very Little) VW…

    • Of course it’s not, it’s a Chinese car with Isdera badges slapped on it to give impression that this is a quality car and heritage.

    “YOU JUST WON THE RACE”!

  • Infinite1

    Nice looking car and the interior is awesome looking. The only thing that doesn’t look all too great is the gull wing doors, doesn’t flow well with the car to me.

  • LWOAP

    WHAT!?

  • SteersUright

    Neat overall but the front design is WAY too understated, almost boring in fact.
