There is a guy that makes 1/25 models, but only sells them as finished models.

This is a good one considering the fit of the panels on the actual car are worse than a scaled down version.

Having actually been in a Bricklin once I can attest to the lousy fit and finish of these cars, they had Ford engines, I forget who made the rest of the drive train.
I vote real also.

Part of Malcolm Bricklin's ideal "Safety Vehicle" (that's the "SV" in the car's SV-1 model name) was to paint them in very visible colors - the brighter the better. That car IS an exremely bright yellow, isn't it? It's also extremely REAL!!!

(BTW: Although this isn't it, I did find a reference to a diecast Bricklin SV-1 in 1:43 by Automodello if anyone's interested. It's on the pricey side, starting at 89 Euros and going up from there.)

Here is the factory:

And just like the real ones, you can order one with the AMC or Ford engine.
