Lotus Elan then.
Correct!

1. Its designer produced some of the most stunning sportscars in the world - Peter Stevens, who also designed the McLaren F1, Jaguar XJR-15, etc...
2. Its engine is known for its reliability - an Isuzu engine
3. At the end of its life it was produced for a single country - Korea, where it actually sold as the Kia Elan, since Kia bought the license of Elan from Lotus to manufacture their own version.

Next then...

Easy one, I hope.

1.It was produced for only 9 model years.
2.In the first two years of it's production, it's engine was in someway unique to the platform.
3.A bit of loophole abuse went into producing it in it's first two years.

5.There was going to be a cheaper, slower version made, but it was cancelled. After that, there was a version of the car made by different company that was almost exactly the same as planned, albeit without the name of the company that first going to made it. This version was a flop.

6.In the later year of this car, unlike the earlier version, which was quite a special car (read that as mildly modified), the car was just a tarted up version of a normal car. More than 50% of these were made during these just tarted up box years though.

Hurst/Olds?

1968-69 models had a 455 engine - although GM policy forbade engines larger than 400 cubic inches in mid-sized cars.


In 1979, and 1983-84, they were fairly basic Cutlass Supremes with fancy paint:



And they did have 3 speed shifters with manual gear selection:

1. This car was initially built for homologation purposes
2. It was produced for seven model years, spanning three decades and two centuries
3. The second generation had a rather... interesting paint treatment
