A Scottish Police spokesman told Dundee Live the incident – which involved a high-performance Audi – happened at 3am.

They added: ‘Investigations so far have established that two people, both dressed in dark clothing, were seen fleeing the vehicle.

In February Dundee Live reported how police launched an investigation after a vehicle was deliberately set on fire in a car park.

Two other cars were also affected by the fire in Lochee.

Emergency crews cordoned off the British Heart Foundation car park in Burnside Street just after 6am.

While last month the owners of a deliberately torched car in the city said they were “frightened” by the seemingly random attack that destroyed their family runabout.

The red Nissan Note caught fire in what police believe was arson.

Neighbors rushed to move their own cars away as flames consumed the car and set a fence on Ashkirk Place on fire.
