It's not that new because no seats these days have a top handle.

No need to `lower` the tone of the thread .....as I thought it may be an `Etendard`,as it appears to have a single engine,a prominent scope,fo attack,etc, so ,is it a Mirage of any variant.........?

Ah, that connection/relation.
Yes, it is a Mirage of any kind.
But which?

If we were to ignore the apparent shape of the canopy's rear end and the missing rear frame (I'm assuming it's a systems display model and not representative in details like that), then it could be a two seat Mirage 2000D ??

(excluding the right wing)

Thanks for the new image, DOH, I see I was wrong in thinking it was a two seater!!

I now reckon it's an F1 something?? (and feel a lot happier about the position of that LOX bottle)

Edited to say, just tried a hunch that it must be a museum exhibit, I can't find your image but it would appear to be the full size model of a Dassault Mirage F1C (1973) in the Museum of Astronautics and Aviation Le Bourget

Douze points pour Sinco
Now named musee de l’Air et de l’Espace


and access is free. (An additional fee if you want to walk inside the Concordes, 747 and the C-47)

Octane, you were close, it is called F1 Cristal

Clearly a variable-pitch twin.

Bomber or passenger ?

Some of the instruments look distinctly British to me, particularly the HSI seen through the left yoke.
