The Elfin MS8 models have been designed by Elfin Sports Cars and styled by the Holden Design team. This collaboration between two Australian manufacturing icons has been an enthusiastic exercise, by car enthusiasts, for car enthusiasts.
The Elfin MS8 sports cars are successors to the Elfin MS7, the Chevrolet V8 powered Elfin which won the 1975 and 1976 Australian Tourist Trophy Sports Car Championships.
On July 5, 2006 Elfin announced that the MS8 Streamliner will be going into production. Problems had surfaced with emissions and noise regulations which caused problems with the development cycle, but the car will have the same Holden-derrived parts as the concept did. Sales should begin at the end of 2006, and production will be limited to just 100 units. Pricing has been set at about $119,500 Australian Dollars, or about $88,500 American Dollars.
