The Elfin MR5 is an Australian Formula 5000 racing car produced from 1971-1972 by Elfin Sports Cars.
Designed by Elfin owner/driver Garrie Cooper, the MR5 was the first car built by Elfin for Formula 5000 racing which had taken over as Australia's top open-wheel category in 1971. A total of four MR5's were built and the cars were powered by Repco-Holden 5.0L V8 or Ford V8 engines.
