That's a Pontyuck Banshee from like mid 60's. I don't think this car made it to production. I saw this in Motor Trend Magazine a year or so ago. They did a thing on old cars that never were.

Ohhhh OOhhh I got it. That was Batmans back up car he gave to Robin.  Or Batman gave it to his first born? But the Turbine fuel was too expensive for robin or batmans bastard child so they sold it off to Fiat

This one here is the first car on this list that is not a concept car. Its named after a track that it's predecessor won at. It's manufacturer has 2 victories in major endurance events (that i know of).

It was that "Jet-Age" car you know when Jets became popular. Bonus points, name a turbine powered vehicle that ran at Le Mans.

Yes indeed. Interestingly enough these cars were made the same up until 1995 since they started making them again in south africa in the late 80s.
