It's one of several unusual vehicles being offered.

A like-for-like copy of the iconic Jaguar D-Type headlines an unusual collection of cars being sold online by Silverstone Auctions on May 23.

The D-Type recreation was the handiwork of two specialist engineers that spent over two years looking at drawings and rare parts to create the most accurate replica of the legendary racer.

The tool-room copy comes complete with with FIA papers and a road registration, and is expected to fetch £225,000 to £275,000, presenting a rare opportunity to acquire such a historic car but at a fraction of the cost of an original.

Another replica in the collection is a Bugatti Type 35 machine based on a 1.8 litre MGB, finished in French Blue, with a pre-auction estimate of £12,000-£15,000.

Also being offered is a 1964 Citroen ID19 Safari, built in Slough and maintained to the highest standard since. From 1999 it underwent an extensive restoration and repaint, before finding its current home in 2014. The car, complete with Citroen's legendary hydropneumatic self-levelling suspension, is expected to fetch £15,000 to £18,000.

There are also two Austin A90 Atlantics, the first a 1950 Convertible at £12,000 to £15,000 in Seafoam Green with just under 30,000 miles and in right-hand drive; and a 1952 Sports Saloon with an indicated 5,268 miles, but is in need of a refresh.
