One one hand we have people like GTO,
#enzowho and Tanveer_2558 who go to great extent to pamper their F10 5 Series.

On the other hand we have some who don't even give a damn.

Either no money or no parts. See the tape around the rear windshield.

Since it's a single owner car, I think the original owner must have R.I.P. and the next gen had no interest in the car.

Can be rebuilt from scratch, like I did my Jeep. But you'd have to really love the W126 to do that. I remember asking around in the late 2000s and it was a 20 lakh rupee job then (to make it 'factory new').

I think this would be a flood damage car, V12 and one without insurance. Else, there's no reason to abandon an F10. A working example can be easily sold in the used market.

That said, once the F10s hit the 10 year mark (i.e. in 2020), we'll be seeing a lot of abandoned examples.

I think I have seen this and another one around the same place. The other one I have seen is a golden Lexus RX300.

Car may have been abandoned due to high maintenance costs or availability of parts. Most of the Lexus/Toyota LC/LX/Harrier/RX/Prado were either imported as CBU's through Toyota Lakozy or through Transfer of Residence (TR) scheme. The Harriers / RX300s were very rare since many would opt for the LX470. I remember in those days (late 90s), the owner of KalraShukla coaching classes had a Harrier/RX300.
