The Isdera Imperator 108i was a supercar produced from 1984 to 1993 and inspired by the Mercedes CW311 concept car. Featuring a fiberglass body laid upon a tubular steel spaceframe, there were little changes made to the original 1978 Mercedes-Benz show car, aside from replacing the pop-up headlights with two fixed units as well as more conventional taillights sourced from Mercedes-Benz.
For those who don’t follow McLaren, the M8A was essentially a race car developed by driver Bruce McLaren and his racing team for their entry in 1968 Can-Am season. The M8A was the vehicle that started it all and its following successors dominated Can-Am racing for four consecutive racing seasons, until the arrival of the Porsche 917. To pay tribute, industrial designer Yosuke Yamada came up with the McLaren Can-Am Homage.

Auto enthusiasts are probably familiar with the Pininfarina-styled Ferrari 308 GTB, as it was introduced at the Paris Motor Show in 1975 alongside the Bertone-shaped 2+2 Dino 308 GT4 and a direct replacement for the 2-seater Dino 246. This classic supercar is powered by an F106 AB V8 engine generating 240 hp at 6,600 rpm, while the European-spec model made 255 hp due to emmission control devices on the former. Designer Carlos Colorsponge combined the best of the 308 GTS with 1980s NASCAR vehicles to create “The Brawler”.
