They look like common Fiat items of the time as used e.g. in the 124 range.

The "Red Car" styling study and at least "GEX 170N" (the first "Ketteringham Hall" esprit prototype / Engineering car) used round vents of a similar design

but look like from a Mk 1 Ford Escort.

Early S1 production cars had a rectangular cover which was derived from Mk 1 Ford Cortinas iirc.

As far as I know:

 

The "Silver Car" was last reported in Giorgio Giugiaros private collection or at least Italdesign´s own museum.

The" Red Car" was last seen a couple of years ago and its current whereabouts are not further known (?).

GEX 170N was converted into a rallycross race car after its career at Lotus Engineering by Dimis Mavropoulos and still appeared occasionally at events in the last years.
