Last December, we talked about the SSC Tuatara hypercar, which is aiming to be the fastest production car in the world. In December, the car was attempting a second record-setting top speed run when it overheated, and the test had to be cut short. Reports have now surfaced that last month the only example of the SSC Tuatara in existence, the very same vehicle seen in the picture below, was heavily damaged in a car carrier accident.

A few months ago, a hypercar called the SSC Tuatara attempted to destroy the top speed record on a closed section of highway.

SSC's Tuatara was never going to be a slow hypercar: 1,750 horsepower makes that very unlikely, after all. Still, the American-made street-legal monster is already clocking up some surprises - even to its builders - ahead of the Bugatti rival's release.
