What does 0 - 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, runs a 194kW turbocharged 2.0-litre four cylinder and is a home grown Aussie creation? That'd be the new Elfin Type-5, and Elfin has unveiled it for the first time at the Sydney Motor Show today.

Weighing in at just 750kgs and featuring the aforementioned 194kW/351Nm forced induction 2.0-litre and a five speed manual, it is good for a top speed of 240km/h.

Your Type-5 is a build-your-own proposition, that, in base model NA form, will set you back around $56,000. A Type-5 in turbo form will see you parting with closer to $75,000 gorillas. Either way, the new Elfin presents an exceptional bang-for-your-buck equation. With these price and performance credentials, Lotus might want to keep a close eye on Elfin’s operations.
