Heinkel? I thought I mentioned them, but maybe not...
That photo looks somewhat like an He119 reconnaissance plane, only smaller, and the 119 had a normal rudder configuration. It was powered by a pair of DB601 V-12s side by side...

Actually, it is more likely Henschel, not Heinkel... I know Henschel made aircraft and locomotives. I don't know about cars, but they did produce some trucks and I think some boats (maybe the E-boats?) in WWII.

All good guesses but still wrong. Both Fiat and Henschel manufactured locomotives, aircraft and ground vehicles ( although I don't think Henschel built automobiles) neither built boats.
Hint#4 This company not only built the vehicle but built the engines and they were all internal combustion engines.

The train went 122 mph in 1934
The airplane is approximately the same size as a Spitfire only lower. I personally have seen this wonderful aircraft.

Hmm... so what European country would this have come from? I think all willing to make a somewhat educated guess have done so...

It's Bugatti. Bugatti was a FRENCH company, though Ettore Bugatti, the founder, was ITALIAN.
"Ettore Bugatti was a French car manufacturer of high-performance automobiles, founded in 1909 in Molsheim, Alsace by Italian-born Ettore Bugatti."

The answer is Bugatti, but we'll wait for boothboy to confirm that since he asked the question!

Bugatti - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Yeah but it was part of the Roman Empire before it was part of the German Empire before it was France! Not buying it? Ok I screwed up. I never realized that old Ettore jumped across the border to France. See I told you that you are a master sleuth! And they always refer to Bugatti's automobiles as French Bugatti's!
Bugatti is absolutely correct The Bugatti company built all four of the aforementioned types of transportation. All of them powered by automotive engines. His trains were powered by the Bugatti Type 41 Royale engines in either 2 or 4 engine configurations. His airplane, which never flew was powered with 2 type 50P race engines @ 475 HP per engine. The pilot sat between and above twin drive shafts. The airplane itself went into hiding during WW2 and now is in the EAA collection in Oshkosh. There currently is a replica under construction. They built many race boats, power cruisers and a ocean going passenger ship was being designed before the war. And cars! Some of the most beautiful automobiles ever built. The picture is of two Type 41 Royale 21 feet in length and weighed over three tons. The Williamson Type 57SC Atlantic sold a couple of years ago for over 30 million dollars but what a design!
It's yours Farna and I'll watch my countries! Did you reconize the Royle? I saw Briggs Cunningham's Bugatti before they broke up his collection. Massive!

The Royale looked familiar, but not enough of it in the first pic (the black and white) for me to be sure. The "early aerodynamics" pic is what rung the bell for sure, before that Bugatti was just a guess! I did wait until then before I searched, but have to admit that I searched before I posted again.

Now to come up with a good question... let me think on it tonight, I'll post something tomorrow.

The man in the photo is Jean Bugatti son of Ettore Bugatti. Jean was responsible for the designs of both The Type 41 Royale and The Type 57 Ventoux, Stelvio, and Atalante models. He was killed driving the Type 57 "Tank" racer.
Usually there were both passenger and race cars developed from each "Type" chassis. Bugatti probably sold more racers than proper passenger vehicles. Wonderful automobiles!
