1964 Elva GT160 Le Mans

It used a BMW dry sump engine of 2 litre capacity with bodywork styled by Englishman Trevor Frost (also known as Trevor Fiore, and who also designed the Trident) and made by Fissore of Turin. It weighed 11 cwt and had 185bhp (138 kW; 188 PS) so would have had very impressive performance but was deemed too costly to put into series production. The car had a Hewland 5 speed manual gearbox.

The car was shown at the London Motor Show in 1964. One of the cars was purchased by Richard Wrottesley and entered in the 1965 24 Hours of Le Mans. Co-driven by Tony Lanfranchi, the car retired early in the race.
