Dear Jonathan

The vehicle was designed and built by Leroy Ellis (in the backgrond) and is powered by a 600cc Kawasaki GPZ bike engine giving it over 200bhp/ton. It is a one off, not a kit. Having said that it did turn up at the Kit Car Show in Stafford in 2010.

It looks like a very well sorted machine in need of a roof.
