This is the Bertone Nuccio concept - an amuse bouche of 100 years of Bertone design, unveiled at this year's Geneva auto show.
It's been scribbled by the legendary styling house's current design boss, Michael Robinson, who seems to have been inspired by.,.. the 1970's. Namely some of the company's greatest hits, including the Lamborghini Miura and Countach, Lancia Stratos, and Fiat X1/9.
So, why's it called the Nuccio? Nuccio Bertone was the son of the eponymous Giovanni Bertone, the design house's founder. Nuccio took over the business in 1950 and continued steering it until his death in 1997.
During his time, Nuccio helped fathom the iconic outlines for Lambretta's GP/DL scooters, Fiat's 850 Spider, Alfa's Montreal, the 1965 Ford Mustang and Ferrari 250GT coupe.
Which one of Bertone's past masters d'you think this looks most like, TopGear.commers?
