That'll be the Twizy. Not much aero going on with that thing though it's a fantastic little thing. Not driven one yet but had a (proper!) sit in one at Geneva and loved it.

Is there an image from the front of this car? I'd like to see the side overhang. And are the vertical fins there for ... stability?

If you google image search Panhard LM64 there are loads of images of that car. It was sold recently I think. There was a previous Panhard LM car which looks a little like a Porsche 356.

If you also google "Index of volumetric efficiency" and "le mans" there are a load of small engined and slippery cars designed to compete in that now, sadly, removed class of endurance racing.
