Dani Behar may have qickly developed that to keep traditional owners happy. No sign of any oil leaks so further development still required.

No, it's not the Elan, that was shown in Paris.

That is the running prototype for the new Seven !
After the 340r they have a more conservative styling ....
although I see
- flat underfloor
- ducting for forced induction ?
- adjustable front wings, not sure about rear wings
- inboard brake discs or some other electrical gizmo breaks

And it is not from Behar, it is a french design (yellow lights)
1964 S1 (engine ready, awainting body paint)
1967 S3 DHC (now adjusted by Brian Buckland, totally calm idle)
1969 S4 FHC (final interior stuff)
