Well, if you exclude kit car makers, super small scale manufacturers and the like, I came up with around 200 the other day, it goes off the scale if you include them.

I'll try and make a list now anyway for the heck of it.

GUYS, GUYS I AM TRULY VERY VERY SORRY, I COMPOSED THAT LIST IN FIVE MINUTES BECAUSE I WAS A HURRY WHICH IS STILL NO EXCUSE. i WROTE FERRARI, I CLEARLY REMEMBER TYPING IT IN TOO.

I have now invoked the curse of the Ferrari god, and shall perform a penance to wash the sins off my body.

I'm telling you, I typed it in!!

I have never heard of a company called Cobra, and its not Atom, its Ariel.

OK Guys, the team-bhp company list version 2.0.

Lambo , I want to set that record straight. I did not forget Bitter, it was very much present. Although I agree about the others.
We have to verify with a few others before adding Ligier, lotc etcetera as I am not sure they make proper cars or if they still are making them at all.
Dippy can you please delete my previous list? For some reason I'm not able to edit my own post. Have you locked it in some way or something?

Cheers S600.

Models? Whoa thats going be tough. I'll try anyway.

But the problem is, if this is going to be a permanent list, then it will have to be updated frequently as the models keep changing.
