Its a Marcos - a Mini Marcos to be exact. Nice little car - even participated at Le Mans. British car maker Marcos made it in the 60's. More known perhaps, is the Marcos Mantula:

Marcos has been bankrupt and later revived a number of times. They are enjoying some succes at the moment, and are reviving their succes at Le Mans:

Bravo Anthony!

There is one on permanent display in the MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) in NY.

One of the most beautiful cars ever made, IMHO.

okay - sorry for getting the thread off-topic, but heres my input to the new subject: "most beautiful non-alfa ever made":

http://www.msu.edu/user/tomlins4/ghia.gif

VW Karmann Ghia coupe. Near-perfect proportions. Beautiful lines. And affordable too. (dont mention the engine, though :D )

When I was growing up there was a guy in my town who had a Ghia with full Porsche drivetrain and a very super engine but other than wheels, tires and exhaust a very stock exterior. It was the ultimate sleeper. A very cool car.
