Aussie sports car is go
6 July 2006

Australian sports car manufacturer Elfin has just got Australian type-approval for this, the MS8 Streamliner.

The Streamliner is primarily a track-day car, though it does feature full bodywork, while its Clubman sibling is a track-only machine with minimal cladding.

Elfin plans to make about 100 cars split between the two models. Prices are set at £48,000 and £39,000 respectively.

Both cars are powered by Holden’s small-block 5.7-litre V8, pumping out 328bhp. The cars feature tubular frame chassis with wishbone suspension all round.

Elfin is working on the production and marketing of the car in Australia with Walkinshaw Performance, Tom Walkinshaw’s performance car and engineering company. Plans for sales outside Australia are unconfirmed.
