itter Facts:

A rarity indeed, at least here in the United States. I've heard that there are about 250 of these cars floating around the US, but the only one I have seen to date is the one I own. The Bitter was manufactured in Germany, and available in the United States only by importing. The car was created by Erich Bitter, a former champion car racer from Europe. Prices ranged from $43,000 all the way upto $55,000 for the Bitter. It was not a mass produced car, in fact Erich speculated selling only 350-400 per year. Although it is no longer produced, there are many Bitter's still around!
