Jaguar XJ220

Like it? 
Ok, already the second Jaguar here. But this time, it is more exclusive.
A photographer found this in a desert in Quatar:

The Jaguar XJ220 has only been built 284 times between 1992 and 1994. With a maximum speed of 341 km/h, it was one of the fastest road cars at that time.
Good examples can easily cost more than 200000€ nowadays.
The car in the pictures is said to only have driven 900 kilometres before being abandoned.
As you can see in the images, it is full of scratches and dents. Really hard to imagine why anyone would leave such a car on the roadside.
This picture shows how this exact car looked before being abandoned:

And if it would have been properly looked after, it would now look similar to this one:
