The DMC DeLorean was manufactured between 1981-1982, but several years before its debut, there was the Bricklin SV-1. Less than 3,000 of the Bricklin SV-1 vehicles were built in 1974-1975, and one of them in pristine condition made their way to auction earlier this month. This vehicle was created by American entrepreneur Malcolm Bricklin and manufactured in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada.
Despite its exotic supercar looks, this particular example sold for $26,200 USD recently with 34,000-miles on the odometer. Power comes from a 351ci Windsor V8 making 250 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque, mated to an AOD four-speed automatic transmission. Its acrylic body panels were replaced with fiberglass and the car was refinished in Safety Suntan over factory tan upholstery. Other features include air-actuated doors, latches, and headlights.
