Sad Day In Jaguarville

AT first, nothing seems out of the ordinary.

What we see is a Jaguar – an X308 generation Vanden Plas, to be specific – on a flat bed. It could be nothing. The cat might  being shipped from location A to location B. Or it could be something trivial, a dead battery, perhaps.

But there’s something about the angle at which the most elegant luxury sedan made in contemporary times is perched. It’s listing, like a wounded ship that’s about to sink.

A closer look…

Not looking so hot. But it could be worse. But then, finally, this…

Not clear on what could’ve caused such damage. Did the car slide of the road? Get brushed at relative-low speed by another car? Bitten by a T-Rex? Whatever the case, the Jag’s much too pretty to die.

  1. It seems to me it was bitten by a T-rex. How unfortunate! Poor jaggy. When they fix it, it will look good as new. It still is a beautiful car… even with the broken leg.

  2. Poor Jaggy, indeed :(
