Lovely photos thanks for posting

That Austin Seven with the very low driving position is interesting , do we know any more about that ?

That 7 was at my friends wedding - it's absolutely wonderful!

The body is a glorious mix of plywood and alloy, and the seats are made of moulded ply and wire mesh

the whole thing is very nicely made and super low. Can't recall the owners name though

It was raced on Sunday by Amanda Fane de Salis as "Austin 7 Salamanda" which I'd guess was a play on the name of the driver, so perhaps she's the owner!

That is exraordinary. So its a newly designed and built car as a racing Austin Seven Special in wood wire and aluminium in the style of a Brooklands 1920s car. Clearly it is very low, small and built around its owner Amanda so I imagine maybe not possible for anyone bigger to get in to. Great style , visually works well.
