Luxury Jaguar Car Thrown Out With the Trash in Siberia

Despite the crisis, Russian dumps are still filled with unexpected items.

As most Russians cope with the country's soaring inflation by cutting down on their expenses, a Jaguar sedan lies abandoned under a pile of snow in the Siberian city of Omsk.

Photos of the luxury silver car surrounded by bags of trash were uploaded Tuesday to the "Typical Omsk" community on the VKontakte social network site.

One social media user, Svetlana Kovalyova, wrote that the car had been lying on the street since last summer due to an engine problem.

Other spotted an opportunity to bag themselves a bargain and called on the car's rightful owner to let them take home the Jaguar.

The vehicle had no license plate, and experts say the model was issued about 15 years ago, the news site reported Wednesday.
