This is the 1964 Alfa Romeo Canguro by Bertone. 
Based on a tubular chassis from Zagato and penned by a young Giugiaro. 
It was proposed for production but was turned down by the factory to Nuccio Bertone’s dismay. 
Adding insult to injury, the one-off was nearly destroyed when it rear ended the Corvair Testudo during filming for a Shell promo film at Monza. 
It was decided that it wasn’t worth rescuing and it languished outside the Bertone works until a German journalist got his hands on it in the 70’s to try rebuilding it. 
He had trouble replicating the front end and gave up. 
Luckily, a Japanese businessman took over the project and managed to save it!
The final rhinoplasty was done with the aid of Giugiaro at Cecomp Torino.
It was seen for the first time at Villa d’Este in 2005 post rebuild.
