​​​​​​​Oh my!!! ... the handlebar mast is straight?!! Looks like the 3sixty clone?

Other things I notice ...
3 speed
Old rabbit gear shifter
Old M handlebars
Different pedals. Plastic? No folding pedal?
New suspension block
Old brake levers
No fenders
Front wheel catch looks different

So it is a "clearance" version of M3E with old leftover parts with 250 GBP discount.
There are much better aftermarket parts for pedals/handlebars/shifter etc anyway, so it should be a better buy than regular M3L/E (if you don't mind the color)

If you want a 3-speed and can live with the colour (and the stem length), it might be worth it.

What a great idea from Brompton. A simple lower cost bike, good for them.
