Default How much hotter is a black car than a white car in the sun?

Sorry this is not under the hood stuff but a common question that most of us have. Interesting facts.

How much hotter is a black car than a white car in the sun?

Everyone knows that feeling of getting into a car that has been sitting closed up in the sun, the closest many of us will come to the flames of hell. Nobody likes it, and everyone knows that the darker the paint color, the hotter it will be. So is it completely crazy to buy a black or dark colored car? Probably millions of people have made car color purchasing decisions based on the idea that dark paint will just be too hot. Some of those people liked the look of dark colors and would have bought one if it weren't for the heat factor.
