Elva was founded in the U.K. in 1965 to build Sports and Racing Cars.
The name Elva comes from the French "elle va" - or "She Goes".
The legendary Bruce McLaren designed a car for Elva to produce which came to be called the McLaren Elva, or M1A.
Only 20 were built, and the survivors are VERY collectible, bringing high prices at auction.
Carl Haas raced one in the 1965 USRRC series, which was soon to become the Canadian-American Challenge series, the Can-Am!
