1969 Adams Probe 16

Only 3 were built, the M-505 Adams Brothers Probe 16 was designed by former Marcos cars designers 
Dennis and Peter Adams in 1969 as 'an investigation into extremes of styling'.
The chassis was made of wood.
It was powered by a mid-mounted tuned Austin 1800 engine and stood a mere 86 cm (34 in) in height.
It has 10" wheels up front and 13" wheels on the back.
Entry was gained via a sliding glass roof. No doors. (wikipedia)

The car was used by Stanley Kubrick in his 1971 film "A Clockwork Orange" which depicts a grim vision of the future of Britain.
As anyone who has seen the film will testify, the Probe 16 fit seamlessly with Kubrick's futuristic, nightmarish dreamscape.
