The SSC Tuatara Hypercar made headlines in late 2020 for attempting to set a top-speed record for production cars and… subsequently being questioned by just about the entire internet. While the machine did end up setting a new record in an official re-run, but it’s still working on bolstering its reputation. That seems to have gone entirely wrong in April of this year after a car carrier crash flipped and wrecked the car.
This scoop comes from The Drive, which also includes photos from the crash. The site reports that the SSC Tuatara’s car carrier was caught up by high winds on an interstate highway just north of Salt Lake City, Utah. The carrier, with the $1.9 million dollar car attached, flipped, leaving the machine in rough shape. The car was reportedly heading to Florida to prepare for a 300-mph speed run.
