The M-505 Adams Brothers Probe 16 was a car, designed by former Marcos cars designers Dennis and Peter Adams, (Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire England) in 1969 as 'an investigation into extremes of styling'. It was powered by a mid-mounted tuned Austin 1800 engine and stood a mere 34 inches (86 cm) in height. It has 10" wheels on the front and 13" wheels on the back. Entry was gained via a sliding glass roof.
Stanley Kubrick featured Probe 16 (AB/4) in his 1971 film, A Clockwork Orange. In the film, it is referred to as Durango 95. In the TV-programme Top Gear (Series 5, 2nd episode, aired October 31, 2004), the one used in the film was nominated for restoration in the Restoration Rip-off feature, but it was out-voted by Paddy Hopkirk's Mini for restoration. The car was subsequently restored by Club Autosport Ltd.
