Bitter SC 
Erich Bitter was born in 1933, in Schwelm, near Düsseldorf. At the age of 16, young Erich drops out of school and goes to work at his parents' bike shop. But he likes riding a bike more than serving customers. And at the age of 20 he made the leap to professional cycling. He rode the Tour de France several times and soon established himself as one of the best cyclists in Germany. At the age of 25, his fame allows him to make the leap to motorsports. Since he has good relations with NSU, which also made bicycles, he easily gets a car. The beginnings were hard, because as he himself said, everyone overtook him. But he learns fast and starts to be successful in European and German championships. Throughout his career, from 1958 to 1969, he drove Porsche, Ferrari and Mercedes and was an official driver for Abarth. 
In 1962 he founded his first company, Rally-Bitter. The small company is dedicated to the sale and creation of products for the competition, from flame retardant suits to the preparation of cars. His fame continues to grow with his successes and in 1968 Opel proposes that he fine-tune the 150 hp Opel Rekord and participate in some competitions with that car. It is then that friendships with important positions of Opel are formed. In 1969, when he left racing, Erich Bitter had a Volvo, SAAB and NSU dealership since 1962 and had been an importer for Germany of Abarth and Intermeccanica since 1964. The problem is that the Intermeccanicas were so poorly built that they left his finances trembling having to Continually fix the cars of disgruntled customers. Still, he believed that there was a clientele for beautiful, elegant, fast and at the same time reliable cars. In 1973, Bitter presented the CD at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It is equipped with a 5.3-liter Chevrolet V8 with 230 hp and 427 Nm at 3,000 rpm. The Bitter could reach 210 km/h and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.6 seconds. In 1973, they were honorable numbers, although not extraordinary either. The success is immediate and at the end of the event he already has 176 orders. A few days later is the first oil crisis and many cancel their orders. Regardless, by the end of 1975 Bitter had sold 100 cars and by 1976 production had reached 254 units of the CD since 1973.
The company’s second car, the Bitter SC was a bit more successful, selling roughly 488 units. It was based on another Opel product, the decidedly stodgy Senator model, and was powered by a fuel-injected 3.0, or 3.9-liter Opel straight six making 177 and 207 hp respectively. In place of the stock bodywork, edgy two-door coupé bodywork was fit that bore a striking resemblance to the Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2. The exterior of the SC is a treat in true ’80s form, and is both familiar, and unlike anything you’ve seen. The Ferrari influences are plain to see in the car’s silhouette and side-window configuration, but other factors are amazingly unique. The front and rear bumpers have been incorporated into the side moldings in a way that only the 1980s could facilitate. The alloy Ronal wheels echo the Ferrari’s from a distance, but are dissimilar up close and look muscular with the differing offset from front to rear.The interior of the Bitter is possibly more well appointed than your home, provided it has not been updated since the start of the Reagan Era. Nonetheless, ’80s aficionados will relish in its pleated leather, faux wood and chocolate leather tones.
