I'm not going to claim any of these cars are "aerodynamic", just looking at the oddity of the double bubble.

Double Bubble: 1959 Abarth 750 GT Zagato Project

The Abarth 750 GT was derived from the Fiat 600 sedan. The Etceterini often began with modified Fiat platforms and mechanical components which were mated to handmade bodies that were lighter and far more exotic than the Fiats they started as. The famous double bubble shape was created with the goal of reducing weight and frontal area for better performance. Aerodynamic studies suggested that the double bubble roof shape reduced drag while providing headroom for the occupants.
