The Isdera Erator GT was a car produced between 1968 and 1969.
The car was a complete self-construction with a fibreglass body, which was glued to a tube frame. The car looked like a Ford GT40 but it had gull-wing doors, reminiscent of the legendary Mercedes 300 SL.
The car was powered by a 5-litre Mercedes-Benz engine using classical tuning (dry sump lubrication, Weber carburettor), which raised the to a power little over 400 hp. Since the car had a drag coefficient of only 0.322, the (alleged) top speed was enormous at 315 km/h.
In 1969 that performance was leagues ahead of anyone else. The Lamborghini Miura P400 had a top speed of 274 km/h, the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 (Daytona) had a top speed of 274 km/h, the Maserati Ghibli had a top speed of 265 km/h and the Ford GT40 had a top speed of 300 km/h.
