Google Maps Street View: Rare Jeep spotted in car park – is this real?

Google Maps is a tool in which users can navigate the world. From viewing their homes to visiting landmarks, Google Maps allows you to travel anywhere you desire. While using the app, many people have come across some of the strangest discoveries that sparks confusion amongst the users.

That is definitely the case for this scene which takes place in Manchester, a city in southern Hampshire, United States.

Google Maps shows a car park just off of a busy road where a few cars are parked.

The sun is shining overhead and nothing appears to be too out of the ordinary.

All of the cars appear to look normal, until you look closely at the red Jeep which is parked at the front of the car park.

What looks like a normal car from some angels, from the front it appears to have two front wheels on the right side.

An eagle-eyed Reddit user posted the photo and said: “Found a rare front-dually Jeep. Must be a big engine.”

One user replied: “Looking good,” while another questioned that they had never seen anything like this before so it must be a fake.

To many disappointment, two wheels is only visible from a certain angle meaning that this car has become caught in a Google glitch.

Google glitches are very common, with some looking more real than others.

Another Reddit user commented on the photo and said: “I still don’t know if this is real.”

“I’m supremely disappointed that this isn’t real,” another commented.

Glitches happen on Google because of the stitching errors that can occur.

The world is constantly moving, meaning glitches are bound to happen.

What is weird however, is the fact that this car is not moving, there is no one in the driver’s seat and it appears to be stationery in the car park.

Google Maps creates the images by stitching together the 360 image sets submitted by users, meaning small errors can easily occur.

However for whatever reason, the car has become stuck in the glitch and given the appearance of a second front wheel on the right side.

While you cannot see the other side to see if that has also become stuck in the glitch, from different angles on Street View, the car looks like a normal car with one front real on the right side of the car.

This is not the first time a car has sparked confusion amongst Reddit users.

Another scene takes place in Michigan, America.

The scene takes place on a highway in the area which pictures an unusual looking red car.

While all the other cars around this particular red car appear to look normal, this red car is very unusual looking.

It appears to have six wheels which for this brand of car is very rare.

The first and second wheels look normally placed as on a regular car.

The third set of wheels is directly behind the second.

A Reddit user commented on the photo and wrote: “I’m pretty sure that’s a 3×3.”

However, it transpired that this car also became stuck in a glitch in which Google elongated the car to look like it had extra wheels. It looked very realistic with no stitching errors visible.
