Looking again at the vehicle, I can appreciate it even more.
Look at the area behind the front wheels.
Even that area has been thought out well.
There is also some great tumblehome to the design.

You cab see the floor level between the axles.


Behind the rear axle there is obviously a bed area over the engine or stowage, whichever. The curved amber section is likely translucent fiberglass, Not sure about the 3-4" thick panel above that.
