The Elfin MS8 Clubman was designed by Elfin Sports Cars and styled by the Holden Design team. This collaboration between the two Australian companies has been an enthusiastic exercise, by car enthusiasts, for car enthusiasts.

Track inspired, the MS8 Clubman is the modern incarnation of the original theme which was first conceived by Elfin founder Garrie Cooper in 1961.

The Elfin MS8 Clubman features hand laid GRP body panels. Internal paneling is manufactured from high quality aluminium sheeting, hand riveted and fully sealed to enhance chassis rigidity.

The Elfin MS8 Clubman is a powered by an all alloy GM sourced LS1 5.7 litre V8 engine. This unit develops 328 horsepower and 465 Nm of torque in standard trim. Higher powered engines can be installed depending on application.

A Tremec T56 MM6 Heavy duty 6 speed gear box sends the power to the rear wheels.

The Elfin Clubman MS8 features a fully handcrafted, jig assembled space frame utilising over 65 metres of material. Various sizes are used in the construction of the chassis to obtain an extremely high level of race car design rigidity, to cater for the transmission of high levels of power/ torque to the rear wheels and to maintain precise steering geometry. The design process has been extended to using 8620 alloy steel for all solid crush tubes, which are fully extended through the frame and TIG / MIG welded from suspension pickup points, fuel tank support mountings to brake pedal mounting points, to obtain a fully race crafted chassis. Laser cut bracketry to maintain precision on all gussets and hole sizing.

All body fixing points on the MS8 Clubman's chassis have nutserts fitted and are TIG welded to obtain longevity.

After construction the chassis is fully ground back by hand and dressed for sand blasting, and then powder coated to 40/50 microns for durability and to obtain a high level of finish.
