The Tasco was a two-seat mid-engined sports car from Chrysler, which Bitter developed with Japanese funding. The body was designed by Tom Tjaarda. Mass production did not materialize; and only two copies of the Tasco were made.
Three years after the presentation of Type 3, Bitter at the next Frankfurt Motor Show surprises the public with a promising supercar named Tasco.
For the first time in the history of the brand, the car received a mid-engine layout, and its design was developed by Tom Tjarda, who had previously had a hand in De Tomaso and Lancia cars. Financial support was provided by Japanese investors, and technical assistance in the creation and refinement of the supercar was provided by MGA Developments from Coventry, who developed an aluminium monocoque for this model, to which external panels made of composite materials were to be attached.
In theory, the newcomer was supposed to compete with high-speed models of such eminent brands as Lamborghini or Ferrari, and under the hood - to accommodate a V-shaped "eight" from the Chrysler engine line, equipped with a turbocharger. The giant V10 from Dodge Viper, known to many, was also mentioned, but the model debuted in Frankfurt only as a model with a detailed interior, but without a power unit.
The car did not receive a decent continuation, was built in a single copy and is currently on display at the Coventry Museum of Transport.
