Wow. Either the sun was really scorching that day or that don’t make cars like they used to. Maybe it was a bit of both. According to a report from City A.M., reflections of the sunlight from a building in London were so intense that a Jaguar XJ was melted.
It was parked nearby and was reportedly damaged by the building reflecting the sun. Certain areas of the car had clearly been melted by the intense sunlight. There were also reports of people smelling melting plastic. Of course.
A photo taken by the BBC revealed some pretty obvious melting. This wasn’t just a one off event. They were previous reports of a van suffering similar disfigurement.
