Quote 5 étoiles !!!!!

Je suppose alors que c'est l'Elva Mk6 qui avait été signalée via le forum, et qui est utilisée par Elvis.

Known as "Vinegaroon" in film. Quotes "Bill Krause raced for Harry Finer, the West Coast importer at Maserati Reps of Beverly Hills. Finer bought a new Elva Mk6 in which his mechanics installed a 2.9-litre 4-cyl Tipo 61 Birdcage Maserati engine. The combination proved impossible to sort out. Krause dropped out after one lap during the consolation race for the Riverside Times GP in 1962 [transmission problems]. One week later at Laguna Seca Krause missed the field by one second. In 1963 the car was sold to Dan Blocker, whose crew could not sort out the car either, in spite of driver Bob Harris' best efforts. It ended up as a prop car in Viva Las Vegas, where it looked good with "movie win", although it was a failure in real life." and

"Two different Elvas were used in 'Viva Las Vegas": the garage scenes were made by Dan Blocker's Elva-Maserati without engine, and the racing scenes by a standard Elva disguised to look like 'Vinegaroon". The Maserati engine was being repaired (a cam bearing seizure in the first test) when the car was rented to the movie studio. Max Kelley was the engine builder, he made several modifications to the original Maserati Tipo 61 engine, a bigger bore to increase to 3-litres and new camshafts for higher rpm were the most important..... the engine developed between 280 and 290 HP."

Fantastic Elvis movie. Love the musical numbers. Not sure if this car deserves 5 stars as it's barely seen (not seen enough to warrant 5 stars). I would say a 3 just because it gets so little screentime. 4 stars would be pushing it.
