This car was designed by Franco Scaglione.   In 1966, a one-off prototype, the Titania Veltro 1500 Coupe, was shown at one of the Salons.  Very elongated, with a diminutive Vanwall-esque air intake, it featured longitudinal slots in the hood as air extracts. With a mundane engine(British Ford 106E), top speed was nevertheless 124 mph. Curiously, this car was similar to that of another great aerodynamicist, Englishman Frank Costin's Amigo of 1970. Both were aesthetically too long in the wheelbase, neither made it commercially, but both excelled aerodynamically using production engines.  Source: Automobile Quarterly Vol 33 no 3 pp 95-96
