      Ever wonder what happens to all those supercars that go to the Persian Gulf? After seeing this images, we kinda wished we hadn't.

      This Jaguar XJ220 – a veritable poster child for the dawn of the modern supercar era, the one-time standard bearer of the 200 MPH Club and one of only 281 produced – made its way from Coventry to Lebanon, then through a Dubai dealership before finally ending up in Qatar.

      With only 900 kilometers (560 miles) on the odometer, this big cat has clearly been subjected to more abuse than any supercar lover (or animal rights activist) could possibly stand to see. The neglect, from the pictures at least, doesn't look much worse than a good washing could recover, so here's hoping.

      Its such a pity to see the XJ220 in this state. The car was eulogized for being the fastest production (top speed) road car till the Mclaren F1 was launched. The engine in this car was Jaguar's first FI V6 too IIRC.

      People have too much money and they can afford better and faster cars.. thats the impression they'll get.

      BTW, MotoGP is happening there and not F1.

      Sob ! Sob ! What a pity ? Money can not buy taste. A petrolhead can only understand the embarrassment the car is undergoing.
