Okay, but even though I correctly identified three in a row (Datsun SPL-310, Morgan AeroMax, Elva), I hope that I am not expected to post three new ones!

Yup!
An Arnolt-Bristol it is.

Although many people believed--incorrectly--that it was a British make, the Arnolt-Bristol was an American car. The chassis (and possibly the engine) came from Bristol of The UK, the body was built by Bertone in Italy, and the car was built in The US. Altogether, one of the more beautiful cars of the early-mid '50s.

Now, Jambo, is it your turn, or is it still my turn?
