Alternate New Routemaster?

I saw this picture depicting a modernised RM at a travel agent the other day. How would this have gone compared to the one London got?

I think it would fail the DDA test.

I think there is actually something similar operating in some obscure European country.

Nuttin will eva beat the original masterpiece, especially with a 505 and manual gear change fitted.

At least it looks more like a Routemaster (or is that RouteMaster?), unlike the "Borismasters" or whatever they are called. As for the DDA, surely they can have the door kneeling.
