Jaguar E-type in Kota Kinabalu ... Well sort of!

Was wondering why J drove me to some back-alley in KK ... only to suddenly see this appear in some merchant's warehouse! Yes ... a shell of a Jaguar E-Type!

Wikipedia ... The Jaguar E-Type (UK) or XK-E (US) is a British automobile, manufactured by Jaguar between 1961 and 1974. Its combination of good looks, high performance, and competitive pricing resulted in a great success for Jaguar, with more than 70,000 E-Types being sold over its lifespan.
It is often referred to as the E-Type Jag, and has subsequently become an icon of 1960s motoring. In March 2008, the Jaguar E-Type ranked first in Daily Telegraph list of the "100 most beautiful cars" of all time.
In 2004, Sports Car International magazine placed the E-Type at number one on their list of Top Sports Cars of the 1960s.
