If ever the phrase 'some viewers may find the following scenes disturbing' could apply in motoring journalism, it is now.

Dusty supercar with little more than 500 miles on the clock snapped lying unloved in Middle East

XJ220 number 132 now...
If ever the phrase 'some viewers may find the following scenes disturbing' could apply in motoring journalism, it is now.
This forlorn-looking Jaguar XJ220 has been spotted looking rather wretched but with just 900km on the clock in Qatar by UAE-based motoring blog crankandpiston.com.
There are a lot of blanks in this story, but it seems that the car was originally sold by a Jaguar dealer in Dubai and was last spotted six years ago in Beirut looking shiny, handsome and well kept, before somehow ending up as this dusty, ignored travesty in Qatar.

...and the same car in happier days
How do we know all this? Apparently Mick Bramley, the photographer who snapped it works on 220s, and keeps a photographic record of the cars that pass through his hands, so imagine his surprise when this dusty wreck turned out to be none other than the very same XJ220 (number 132) he'd seen all those years ago in Beirut.
It's enough to make a grown man cry...
