Cannot figure this one out. By the rear intakes it could be a mid engine car which should narrow it down. Rebodied celica 5th gen??

Yes it's a Venturi Atlantique 300. It's got a mid mounted 310 hp twin turbo V6. I has always been a huge fan of it's more brutal big brother; the 400 GT/400 Trophy:
A limited edition 400 GTR was built for racing homologation requirements and later used in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. [...] The 400 GT remains one of the best performing French cars ever produced, and it is in fact the very first car in the world to have standard carbon brakes. True to that claim, the Atlantique 400 GT with a 408 hp (304 kW; 414 PS) V6 delivered excellent performance to put it on par with Ferraris of the early 90s. The 400 GT could hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.7 seconds and 291 km/h (181 mph) top speed, while the 300GT with a 314 PS (231 kW) V6 did 4.9 seconds to 100 km/h (62 mph) and went all the way to 171 mph (275 km/h).

^^^ Could be a Tatra, and driven by Kanye West in a crazy pretentious long form music video.

(Though natch this is a Venturi)

This car has been covered in series 1 of Top Gear in the ep where they lighten and then nitrous modify the old Jag XJS (shortly before firing it off a ramp of an aircraft carrier)
