Abandoned Jaguar XJ-220 found in Qatar desert
There’s something utterly depressing about finding an abandoned car out on the streets collecting dirt and dust with no hope of a carwash in its foreseeable future.
But what makes this more depressing is that the car you’re looking at is one of the rarest one you’ll find on the planet: the Jaguar XJ-220.
Born out of a dream that came to then Jaguar chief designer, Jim Randle, the XJ-220 became one of Jaguar’s most unexpectedly successful models in its proud and rich history. Such high esteem held for the XJ-220 should be enough for an owner to take utmost care of it.
But, apparently, this particular XJ-220, which was found somewhere in the Qatari desert by Crank and Piston’s Mick Bramley, wasn’t given the special care and attention it so deserved.
Talk about heartbreaking.
