Using Opel / GM bits and pieces and Baur's and other's production facilities Bitter had produced grand tourers like the CD and SC. In 1985 a decreasing demand forced the last of a rare breed of low-volume manufacuters to shut down. In the following years the company's founder Erich Bitter did not retire from the automotive industry and at the turn of the century rumours of an upcoming Bitter surfaced.

Although heavily speculated on in the preceeding years, the unveiling of the Bitter CD II at the 2003 Geneva Motorshow was still a surprise for many. Although the 'new' CD is very modern, it encaptures all the design and construction elements of the old Bitters; it combines Italian looks with GM technology. A year later, a slightly updated version was presented in Geneva.

The base for the CD II is the Australian Holden Monaro coupe, with which it shares the chassis and engine. For the expected production version of the CD II, Bitter will definitely use a GM engine, possibly the LS2 6.0 litre Corvette V8 or even a rumoured Cadillac V12 engine. It's expected to make its debut somewhere in 2005.
