Default Prototype Cars

Last spring my husband had the privelege of arranging for the transport/unloading & return of 2 prototype cars for a private exhibition in Kuwait. The orange & black car is called the Hulme, designed by 2 lovely Kiwi men in memory of Dennis Hulme, F1 Champion in 1967.
Here are the photos, some are of the cars being unloaded etc.

Is the red prototype from the same Kiwi company? I think it is a concept car shown by One of the Italian design houses,as future of Farrari, it used the farrari running gear.It was named Fiorano.

Doesn't the Hulme look very similar to the Caparo T1? The Hulme appears to be a two seater with side by side seating, while the Caparo T1 has the passenger seat slightly set back from the driver's seat.
Pics below of the Caparo T1
