famous company – BOL 504?

This picture sent by Robin Hanauer shows Colin Chapman with the prototype/development Lotus VI, in perhaps 1952/3. The Nippy next to it is still on the DLVA system and had a new V5 issued in 1988, but has not been taxed. It is noted as a Red Austin 748cc. January 1936 registration.

It must still exist – anyone know of it? Clearly it raced from the headlamps and lightweight front cycle wings. Anyone recognise the badges?
