SSC officially owns up to its failed October top speed attempt
SSC admitted Wednesday that its Tuatara supercar was not reaching the speed the company claimed in October when it allegedly wiped out the Koenigsegg Agera RS's then record of running at 316.11 mph. While SSC neither apologized directly nor fully explained the mistake, nor revealed the true top speed of the Tuatara from last year, the small supercar maker's Instagram post is the first public admission that not everything was as it seemed in the fall.
"We have seen your questions for months now and understand your frustration. If it has not been clarified by this point, we would like to officially acknowledge that we did not reach the originally claimed 331 MPH or even 301 MPH speeds in" October 2020 " it says in the post: "We were really heartbroken as a company when we learned that we had not achieved this feat, and we are constantly striving to break the 300 MPH limit transparently, officially and unequivocally."
"We would also like to thank everyone who supported and understood our unexpected incident in April that delayed our top speed efforts," it said.
Many cried Foul after reading the video posted by SSC that claimed to back up his top speed run. The controversy prompted SSC to make a second (and ultimately unsuccessful) attempt. The third time proved to be the attraction, but the results were far less impressive, if still sufficient to undercut the previous record of the Agera.
The "unexpected incident" referenced by SSC towards the end of the post happened when their record-breaking car was badly damaged in transit in April. The company claims it will eventually (so to speak) correct the record, but when, where and if this will happen is yet to be determined.
