No its a replica as the proportions are all wrong. Probably MR2 based.

:agree: If it's MR2 based, then an M100 body has been put on an MR2 "chassis". Dash, screen, spoiler fuel cap wheels stud pattern etc etc etc all look right. If the proportions are wrong it's because of the angle of the photo and the apparent shortening. Surely no-one would go to the huge expense of creating moulds for a replica body?

for all others, it'wasn't a kit car. it was an elan, just wondered from the number plate if anyone knew whose it was.

First thing I've won.........(this year) :lol:

Seriously, I knew you meant the number plate and it does seem familiar but I can't recall where I've seen it before? :?
