Without Googling, from memory, it's the Rover 75 x 2, with the push-me, pull-you option.
Rover 150?

Quiet correct and it is written on the side of the car. I just thought it was a great name.

Oh!
I had not zoomed in to read that on my tiny cellphone screen.
But I have Googled it now.
Road-legal.
Looks beautifully done.
An interesting article about it online.

What is this? Special bodied Facel (my guess)? Or Alvis? Or ...?

I believe it's a Bentley Mk VI, with a special coupe body by Facel.

Specifically the Bentley Cresta II, the second Facel Metalon bodied Bentley. The Crestas were the brainchild of Jean Daninos. Bentley eventually refused to supply him with chassis and launched the Continental. Daninos went on to make the Vega using his contacts from WWII to secure engines from the US.
