In 1965, a LEGOLAND official wanted to bring more customers into the then small theme park. He came up with the Elf. It took 8 months to produce the first one, which was then destroyed in testing. Another was made with a more powerful engine - 144 bhp. It was tested and approved for racing by the LEGOLAND staff, and a track was made in the park. The Elf continued to be the top racecar in many races held at LEGOLAND, until the 1976 LEGOLAND GP, where the 3 Elves racing crashed with only one driver surviving. The Elves were banned from racing because of "inadequate protection for the driver." Now only 2 Elves survive, one in the museum at LEGOLAND, and one belonging to the man who first designed the car. He now drives it every day, and he says that it has over 770,000 miles on the odometer.

It's a nice one, sadly the minifig doesn't really fit in. Again, much like me with my bikes.
