This creation has a Chevy 350 cube inch 5.7 small block V8 engine , quick shift C4 gearbox and a built in smoke machine in the rear for effect . It is built on Toyota Hi-lux chassis and running gear.

This vehicle is a creation by Elo from tv shows such as Ultimate Wheels , modern wheels or classic steals and somebody who once created cars for Kourosh Mansory and supplied stars to 50 Cent , Kaboul , Djibril Cissé , J-lo , Tyrese Gibson and me to name only a few.

Having transferred much of his modelling wealth to the car scene, Elo and his wife Mai founded the London Motor Museum in 2004, and set up a customisation shop that has been used by celebrities from around the world , As his fame grew, so did the pay cheques. He says “I got £40,000 from a Reebok commercial. So I went to the bank, cashed it, and I bought 7 cars, from one day’s work. I did the modelling because I could, it meant I could afford the cars I had always dreamt of”. In 1992, he became the first black male model to walk the Georgio Armani fashion show, which he did alongside Naomi Campbell.

By 1997, Elo had been voted Male Model of the Year by the French Institute for Fashion, but his enthusiasm for the industry had waned. He had made enough money from modelling to leave fashion altogether, purchasing a house in London’s West Hampstead with Mai, and turning his attention to his lifelong interest in cars.

We have supplied Elo numerous vehicles for his clients and one day he said to me " Lee come down i want to buy some of your japanese cars for my car Gallery in miami (miamisupercarrooms) , we can have a deal " So we went down and this vehicle stuck out , i wanted it but Elo told me " Lee i have over £30,000 build hours in that car without materials , I dont want to sell that one " but three years later i have managed to take it from his 250 car 12 million pound collection .

This vehicle would be ideal as a show piece , Movie / Tv appearance , Advertising , Car shows , Haloween / Prom parties etc , We can tailor this car to your need and finish the creation Elo Started ..
