Elva was a sports car manufacturer based in Hastings, United Kingdom. It was founded in 1955 by Frank G. Nichols. The name comes from French elle va ("she goes"). After financial problems caused by failure of the US distributor, the company was sold to Trojan in 1961 when production moved to Rye, Sussex and again in 1966 to the main Trojan factory in Croydon. Production ended in 1968.
