Skyscraper melts a Jaguar

This story from London is just unbelievable, yet quite true. According to the BBC a man parked his car underneath the “Walkie-Talkie” building in London and when he came back a few hours later, he noticed that parts of his Jaguar were melted.
Because of the design of the building, sunlight is reflected down on the street bellow heating up the area up to 70 degrees Celsius, that’s about 158 degrees Fahrenheit. No matter how you slice it, that’s pretty hot.

I wonder if insurance covered that.

Of course the first thing to do when you have such a building in your city? Fry and egg!
