Half the pictures the pictures in that thread require no explanation, but they aren't helpful when it counts.

My best guess was Victress La Dawri, but no:

Any idea what your post shows? Also this (unannotated) one:

My guess is Maserati. It has a birdcage/bread van vibe to it.

Using Google reverse image search, it works best with downloaded files verses hot-linking option. (click "images" and then the camera icon)

My guess is Maserati. It has a birdcage/bread van vibe to it.
It might be a 1952,or later Jaguar XK 120C-based,droop-snoot,one-off, by Lister,or other builder,campaigned at LeMans.
A much faster car,but unstable on the Mulsanne Straight.
Also,maybe,1959 (Brian)Lister-Jaguar,body by Frank Costin (LOTUS)
Whoops!
I backed up and saw the Maserati marque in the front view a few posts back.Sorry!

It's Okay, what did you think of the Bosley Interstate with its dropped nose (for downforce)?

It has the pontoon fenders and low hood of the Volkhart-Saggita V2. Imagine the V-S cabin grafted on the Bosley or or the Bosley nose on the V2.

Some interesting things here:

Reduce the rake and untruncate the rear and this looks like it should slide nice.

Good work on the resixing algorithms. Bu now upside down.

Compressing the air takes energy, but I sort of like it.

I like it too. Compressing air efficiently involves removing and adding heat, but I guess that means 'free' air conditioning.

Modern supercars have so much air moving through the body that the ductless highboy design might have less drag.

I'd miss side windows though.
