The article presents information about the car Elfin MS8 Streamliner. Its classic big engine, shoehorned into the nose of a small chassis results in the classic handling trait understeer in and oversteer out. Penned by ex-Holden design guru, Mike Simcoe, the Streamliner is an altogether more purposeful looking car than its forerunner, the V8 Clubman. The cutesy fenders of the Clubbie make way for fibreglass muscles that just contain wide 235/40 R18 rubber. It is beautifully built and finished, stylish, fast, and most importantly, from the perspective of potential owners.
