This is hard. Theres been loads of Cars with NACA Ducts on the bonnet. Theres been the F40, Enzo, 360 GT, 348 Zagato. Lambo have had the Countach, Espada, Diablo GT with NACA ducts aswell as countless others from other makes. Any chance of more clues.
I'm with you on the Espada; all the other cars you mention are mid engined and don't need a forward NACA duct.

EDIT: but it can't be, because

has a bonnet line in front of the duct, while the Espada has a clamshell lid.

I was just saying all of the above cars have a NACA duct on the front whether on the wings or the bonnet. They use them for brake cooling sometimes aswell as engine cooling. Theres just too many without more of a clue. None of them are near the split in the bonnet though.

Could be a Jarama, then, though I think the ducts were farther apart from the bonnet line...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfa_Romeo_Montreal said:
The Alfa Romeo Montreal was a coupe automobile produced by the Italian manufacturer Alfa Romeo from 1970 to 1977.

The Montreal was introduced as a concept car in 1967 at Montreal's Expo 67, for which it was named. It was a 2+2 coupe using the 1600 cc engine and chassis of the Alfa Romeo Giulia, with a body designed by Bertone. The first production car was shown at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show and was quite different from the original, using a 2593 cc V8 engine with SPICA fuel injection that produced around 200 bhp, coupled to a five-speed gearbox and a limited-slip differential. This engine dated back to the mid-1960s, having being used by Alfa in prototype racing and in the 33 Stradale. The chassis and running gear of the production Montreal were taken from the Giulia GTV coupe and comprised double wishbone suspension with coil springs and dampers at the front and a live axle at the rear.

The Montreal remained generally unchanged until it was discontinued in 1977.

Looks like some sort of slab-sided mid-80's General Motors product...Buick? Cadillac?

If that fails I'm just going to fall back on Subaru XT or Nissan Pulsar.
