SSC Tuatara did not break 500km/h barrier in 2020, manufacturer finally concedes

US-based manufacturer SSC has finally acknowledged its Tuatara hypercar did not break the 500km/h barrier in 2020 – almost a year after it made the bold record-making claim. Following a road-car speed record attempt in October 2020, SSC declared its low-slung V8-powered hypercar had averaged 508.73km/h over two runs on a closed-off Nevada highway.

Carlos Ghosn escape team jailed in Japan for up to two years

The escape of Carlos Ghosn, the disgraced former boss of Nissan-Renault who is now a fugitive in Lebanon, has come at a high price. While Ghosn is now able to live a relatively normal life in his homeland because Lebanon does not have an extradition treaty with Japan, the US father and son team who helped him flee on a private plane – while the former auto executive was hidden in a box – have been sentenced to up to two years in jail.
