Bitter CD Blue metallic in 1:18 Scale by Schuco


This is the Bitter CD Blue metallic in 1:18 Scale by Schuco.

In the early 1970s Erich Bitter combined tried and tested Opel technology with an extravagant and exotic chassis design. The result
was the Bitter CD, a sports automobile which was produced from autumn 1973 to the end of 1979 and combined American and German
technology with Italian chassis design. Designed in close collaboration with the Stuttgart chassis manufacturer Baur, the Bitter CD
was presented to an enthusiastic audience at the IAA 1973 in Frankfurt. The mechanical parts were based on the Opel Diplomat B and
included a 5.4 litre 8-cylinder engine with 230 hp. By the end of production in 1979, a total of 395 of this elegant sports coupé had
been sold for a base price of DM 60,000. The Bitter CD can reach speeds of up to 210 kilometres per hour, and more than half are still
on the road today, mostly owned by collectors.

This model is hand painted and polished to a beautiful finish and has a sealed body. Resin models are exceptionally accurate of scale, shape and detail. Each model is created using a variety of production processes, to achieve this precision. They are produced using a composite material referred to in the industry as “resin”. Photo etched parts, die-cutting, tampo printing and waterslide decals are often used for a most authentic replication.
