This strange looking vehicle is The Pininfarina "X". It is a concept car circa 1960. It was shot at an "Auto Toy Store" through a window which explains the glare and less than great photo quality. The car featured a wheel in the front and back for steering and two wheels in the middle for power achieving good performance and, for the time period, good milage. The engine had 43 H.P. in a 4-cylinder, 1.1 litre engine. The car never made it into production. While the aerodynamics are interesting, the bumpers and other safety features left much to be desired. For those old enough to remember, it looks like something out of THE JETSON'S.
