Italian sun turns family motor into sticky mess
A BRITISH tourist photographed this car melting in the killer heatwave sweeping across Europe.
Taxi driver John Westbrook, 48, was astonished to see the vehicle starting to drip when the mercury hit 99°F 37.2°C.
He captured video of the side trim, lights, wing mirrors and window fittings melting off the Renault Megane parked near the beach in the coastal town of Caorle in Northern Italy.
John, from Folkestone, Kent, said: “We drove past and just couldn’t believe what we were seeing. Bits of the car were literally dripping off on to the road.
“Even bits of the bumper were melted and the wing mirrors were starting to buckle.
“I guess the moral of the story is don’t trust French cars.”
