Details Released On New Elfin Type 5 Roadster

Written by tonks on July 24, 2008

Type 5 RoadsterThe Australian automaker – Elfin produces some of the best power-to-weight-ratio sports cars. Now they will be releasing a Super-7-kit car scene complete with a new model – which is known at this time as the Type 5.

The new car will be targeted to the Ariel Atom and Lotus Elise. Power will come from the turbocharged four in the Pontiac Solstice GXP and Saturn Sky Redline, packaged in a completely new chassis with styling penned by sister company HSV’s design studio.

Pricing, released along with the design sketch you see above, is pegged at AUS $65,000 (approximately $63k). That’s significantly less than a supercharged Elise, but with more power and even less weight, which sources suggest should allow it to hit sixty in a scant 3.7 seconds.
