EL XR8 SVO what is it?

I was looking around at cars today and came across this EL. It's a 1998 build with a 4spd auto with 73,000km. Anyway it has SVO written ALL over it and has a large body kit with mags as well. What interested me the most as it has 190i written all over it, im guessing 190kw.

The car has SVO stiched into the seats and has it all over the place. It also has the clear repeaters on the fender. Was this a factory car or something someone has just slapped together. I just wonder if its really 190kw.

Another one.. how much is it worth

Not a factory car, but it was an upgrade done by an SVO dealership, like what herrods do these days. They had 190 and 210kw versions from memory.

Re: EL XR8 SVO what is it?

The one i saw doesn't have the thing in the middle of the bonnet but has the other two little vents. The wing also looks a bit like a slippery slide.

Is this a rare car or are they preety common?

They aren't common but they made a fair few. You could option them the way you wanted, there were a few body kits, interiors, engine packs etc.

Re: EL XR8 SVO what is it?

I recently paid $18k for a series 2 EL XR8 Manual.. (Dec 97) build.. I reckon an SVO, with low kays like that would be worth around the $23-25k mark?
