SPECTRUM SALOON CARS (SSC)

SPECTRUM PATROL CARS (SPC)

 

Designed especially for the Spectrum organisation (2065), the Spectrum saloon cars are armed with twin rapid fire machine guns (in the front wheel arches), Infra-red detectors, telescopic scanners, etc.  These SSCs are powered by compressed gas turbines driving all four wheels independently of each other (giving 4 X 4, four-wheeled drive to the poly-silicate racing tyres).  The saloons are 20 feet long, weigh 3,248 Lbs and have a top speed of 150 MPH.  The SSC is a five seater vehicle (possibly six, with three in the front and back), with yellow seatbelts, constructed at an unknown location (with designs by the World Motor Manufacturers Ltd). Saloons are powered by a special form of fuel distilled from the ultra-sonic refinery at Bensheba, with electro-magnetic, reverse-thrust braking.  These saloons are made from hardened Fleetonium allow (with internal "roll-cage" and bracing) and are bright red in colour.  Spectrum saloon cars also possess ejector seats.
