German Tuner Bitter is Building a Line of C7 Corvette Shooting Brakes


Callaway’s shooting brake C7 Corvette has been around for years.

Now comes word that the legendary German tuner, Bitter, will be unveiling its own C7 Corvette-based shooting brake at the 2020 Geneva International Motor Show.

Bitter has been around since the 1970s when the company produced a shooting brake called the CD, based on an Opel sedan and powered by a Chevy V8. In those days, General Motors owned Opel and gave its full blessing to the CD, with GM designer Chuck Jordan even doing some of the preliminary work.

It’s been a rough and rocky road – some might call it a bitter path – for the company, which was founded in 1971 by Erich Bitter, a former racer who went into the tuning and car making business.

Bitter has survived through the decades, though, and currently produces luxury versions of the Opel Adam and Opel Mokka.

Only 20 of the new Corvette shooting brakes will be produced, according to Bitter, and the first two have already been reserved.

Two photos released by the company this week show the new car will have unique front fender vents, taillights, and exhaust tips, along with the sloped back, of course.

What’s your take on this shooting brake? We’re not sure it will be warmly welcomed by the motoring world, especially since the timing will likely have it competing for attention with the C8 mid-engine Corvette by the time it’s available. Good luck with that.
