though priced as the legit thing, it does not really claim to be one as it says in the text "built from scratch"...

Hi Andy
If you look at any entry list for a race these days, nearly every Elan is down as a 26R!
A fortune was spent on that car just testing and development, but at the end of the day it is another racing Elan at around double the price of other GTS cars and 50k less than a genuine 26R. Had quite a few dnf's as well I believe.
