Would you believe that your car can be damaged by a skyscraper? This is what happened to Mr Martin Lindsay parked his shiny new black Jaguar next to the newly constructed 37 storey skyscraper. When he returned about two hours later, he found parts of his car – including the wing mirror and badge – had melted.
Dubbed as the “Walkie Talkie” due to its unique shape, the skyscraper has a bend in its Facade which makes the whole building act as a converging mirror.
The street opposite to the skyscraper now bears the brunt of up to 70 degree Celsius of concentrated sunlight. Mr Lindsay he had no idea that such a thing could happen when he parked his car that morning, he simply couldn’t believe his eyes. The developers have apologised and paid for repairs.
