Check out this picture for sale on e-bay. It's from the Turin motor show in 1959. I haven't found a trace of it anywhere else on the net but it looks like a Flaminia GT prototype to me.

Not sure about this, as there is also a photo of a fully developed lovely Flaminia GT from the same show, same year, on this page also for sale.

I confess I wasn't entirely convinced but that leaves the question f what the heck is it.

I'm pretty sure it's the car in the attached picture and as located at https://www.classiccarcatalogue.com/SAVIO%201960.html
This says it's a FIAT 1500 Spider ... and from the 1960 Turin Motor show (not 1959). It must have been a styling exercise as the bodywork treatment around the lights is completely different to the standard 1500 Spider. But this is also probably where the mistaken identity for the Flaminia crept in as, from the angle in the originally referenced ebay item at least, there is some similarity.

Thank you Scott, a mystery solved I think.
