More a kitten than a tiger tank...this bizarre tracked motorbike from the WW2 German army has emerged for sale.<br />
<br />
The Nazi military vehicle resembling a motorbike crossed with a tank was actually the fastest tracked vehicle of the Second World War.<br />
<br />
Capable of 50mph the relatively light, multi-terrain vehicle proved itself in the mud and ice of the Eastern front during WW2 and could be transported inside a Junkers 52 aircraft.<br />
<br />
This intelligent machine made the Allies' corresponding tractors, which were all jeep-like in their design, look entirely unsophisticated. <br />
<br />
The vehicle, valued at £80,000, is being sold by Bonhams in Chichester, W. Susx, on March 19.
