Elva MK VI Sports Racer - ELVA "She Goes"

 

The name Elva is a corruption of 'elle va' meaning 'she goes'. 

The MK VI rear-engined sports car, is the first of the modern ultra-low 'lay down' sports racers. It had a similar chassis layout to the Elva Type 300 Formula Junior, with a steel spaceframe chassis, a 1,100cc Coventry Climax engine (most examples were fitted with this engine), and a design by Keith Marsden. The aluminum floor acted as a stressed member, further strengthening the spaceframe chassis. It had a fully independent suspension setup with drum brakes and 15-inch wheels on all four corners. It wore a lightweight fiberglass body that was slippery and had a very low overall height, with split air intakes in the front.
Total production of the Elva MK VI reached approximately 28 examples with most being sent to the United States where importer Carl Haas was responsible with distribution. These 1.1-liter sports racers were popular in the SCCA 'CM' and G-Modified class and often the favored competitor
