Bold. Innovative. Ambitious. Paradoxical. Star-crossed. Many
things can be said about the Bricklin SV1. Its styling was as striking as
anything on the road when it debuted in 1974, and Bricklin was determined to
provide a vehicle that was as revolutionary inside as out. In addition to the
traditional sports car priorities of performance and styling, Bricklin ambitiously
chose to emphasize safety, giving the SV1—for Safety Vehicle One—a market niche
virtually all unto itself. The car incorporated a number of innovative
technical features, including an integrated roll-cage, gull-wing doors and
energy-absorbing front crash structures. All in a car that could run
door-to-door with the contemporary American sports car icon the Chevrolet Corvette.
