Is that a lightweight front and rear axle on the DB to the left?
No, an early version of all wheel steering. Full sideways movement was an option for owners in congested aress.

Is that a red Jensen bonnet in the foreground? If not, why not? It looks a nice day to be using one?

Excellent, well done sir! That angle had me confused a bit though. The bonnet crease down the left of the picture looked Interceptor but I wasn't sure about the creases down the right.

On the right is the gap between bonnet and wing, and the crease in the top of the wing is far right.
