Seems to me a Jaguar E-Type, by the wheel, the door and the rear plate support.

Now rebuilt - nice video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-3OxAP1BKc&feature=youtu.be after 7,000 hours of work (easily believable) and apparently 90% of original parts used (eyebrows raised in surprise). The only Low Drag coupe body ever made by Jaguar on the Lightweight and may have been the most powerful of the 12 Lightweights in original form with a 12 plug cylinder head. More info at http://www.jagweb.com/jaguarmodelclub/b4868wk.htm .

Also "When the Lindner-Nocker Car was first restored by Lynx, the post-crash wreck of Peter Lindner's car was too far gone to use, so the mechanicals were built into an unused genuine Lightweight shell, one of six that Jaguar had built but didn't complete in period. The mangled remains of the original body and this 'new' car were then displayed alongside each other for years in the Rosso Biano Collection. Then in 2007 Peter Neumark bought the pair and decided to showcase the skills of his company Classic Motor Cars of Bridnorth by rebuilding the original Lindner-Nocker shell using the metal from the original shell. And that meant that the shell that Lynx had used – a genuine aluminium Lightweight E monocoque, number 14 of the 18 made – was then going spare. So CMC did what anyone would do and built it back up to full works spec using a period all-alloy, fuel-injected 3.8-litre XK engine from the Walter Hill Collection mated to an original factory ZF gearbox from Eagle E-types. Even the seats are original Lightweight E-type items and the number plate – 4 GXO – is eerily close to that of one of the original 12, 2 GXO." from the description of a modern Lightweight replica - Link to "www.classicandsportscar.com" .

And to note that although 4868 WK is the genuine Lindner car (or the genuine rebuild of what was left of it....), there are other silver recreations of this car and its unique factory-made bodywork which may yet appear on imcdb, such as 9999 WK (which is a non-Lightweight conversion) but they should always be entered as replicas.
