Does anyone know much about a Carrera bike that's either called an Elevated or a Rapidfire?

The frame looks a lot like a Carrera Quattro, but the cables are routed differently, and the paint and decal styling make me think it must be a couple of years older (1992?)
The reason I ask is because I came across this
on ebay last week, and was champing at the bit to bid for it, but the seller ended it early, so I'll never know what secrets it held.
Was it Saracen-built? What year was it from? Were the mudguards less disgusting in real life? What's that handlebar all about? (I suspect the last two items probably aren't original spec..)
