That's probably going to be a bit light at the front?? Intended for track use only perhaps but would surely need a rear facing camera otherwise.

Looks like someone's concept of a pregnant GKN-47D from the A pillar back where its parents were once Europa S2's. A true "bitsa". And it's going to be a real challenge to close the lid over that powerplant. :)
