You would be forgiven for thinking this is a clip trailing the BBC’s new episode of Doctor Who, where the TARDIS is now a car, as the Time Lords have finally got round to repairing that broken chameleon circuit, that has rendered the TARDIS’ appearance unchanged for the past 50 years from that of a 1960s-style London police box – but this is footage recorded on a car dashboard camera in Moscow, Russia.

The camera has seemingly captured a ‘Ghost Car’ materialising out of thin air on an intersection, almost causing an accident.  YouTube users have explained away the footage saying the vehicles in shot are perfectly aligned, blocking the ‘Ghost Car’ from sight and thus creating an optical illusion.  The proof being a small part of the rear of the ‘Ghost Car’ being visible just before it appears in the full view of the braking car.  Nevertheless, it is interesting to look at!

What do you think?  Is it Doctor Who’s new ride, a car materilising in thin air or simply an optical illusion?
