The German based automaker Artega is bankrupt and time has come for the company to close its gates and send home the 34 workers who are assembling cars by hand.

After the company’s found Klaus Dieter Frers has left this business two years ago when the auto crisis has begun, the future isn’t looking bright for Artega Motors who has to close its gates and fire the 34 workers who were assembling cars by hand. The decision was taken recently because of a deep financial crisis within the company, who has to file for bankruptcy.

As a quick reminder, the Artega Automobil GmbH & Co. KG is a German sports car manufacturer, founded back in 2006 by Klaus Dieter Frers and based in Delbruck. The company is producing sports cars and the most interesting one by far is the Artega GT, which was officially presented to the public in a world premiere during the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The Artega GT came as a two-seat sports car and it’s production started in 2009. The model has a Volkswagen-sourced 3.6 liter V6 engine, which is developing a total output of 300 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque (260 lb-ft), mated to a six-speed DSG transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration in the GT takes less than 5 seconds and the model can go up to a top speed of 270 km/h (170 mph).
