That's not an Elan.

Toyota 2000GT

Toyota sports 800 is also a fine car.

I talked to a guy who owned a factory converted 196something testarossa. He was tuning his carbs. All 6 of them. With 2 barrels each. It took him a while.

Speaking of Flip, one of the best looking race cars was the Mercedes CLK-GTR, especially in the "naked model" livery.
This car is infamous as the car that flipped (in two different incidents) at Le Mans.

I couldn't find good pictures of the real car, so here are some shots of a well-done model:

The best looking multi-colored car ever was not the Partridge Family bus, it was the Benetton B188:

Tell her to buy a post 1968 Citroen DS, or DSuper.:D The driving lights turn with the steering and illuminate around curves nicely.

I've taken some cool shots of the Audi R8. :D OK, it's not the R10 TDI, but it's the legendary predecessor.

I really like the Lotus Elise.

I also like the Lamborghini Miura:

My brother has a '69 (I think) in that blue color. White top, chrome bumpers, w/ a fresh motor. Sweet!
