This could be intended to be a Fiat AB41, but there are many differences.

Information and photos of the AB41 and other Italian armoured cars at:

The closeup of the gun turret shows it is covered in what looks like thin metal sheeting.
Possibly a Daimler Dingo with false bodywork.

Wow, this is surely a 1950's British Army Ferret Armoured Car, with a mock-up structure. The shape of the mudguards, wheels, spare wheel mount(empty, on the left side), headlights and smoke launchers are typical of the Ferret.
