Spectrum Patrol Car - 103

 

From the TV series of Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons - the car is provided with a screaming friction motor

The Spectrum Patrol Car (SPC) or Spectrum Saloon Car (SSC) is a fictional vehicle that appears in Gerry Anderson's science-fiction television series Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons (1967) and in revamped form in the remake series Gerry Anderson's New Captain Scarlet (2005).

Accessible only to Spectrum personnel, the SPC is 18 feet (5.4 m) long and equipped with four-wheel drive. It can seat up to four people, can reach speeds of up to 195 mph (312 kph), and is powered by a gas turbine located under the rear roof. The car is specially equipped with quartz headlights that permit the driver to see long distances in the dark. The vehicle also features transverse gearing, independent suspension and magnetic drums that provide powerful control braking by means of electromagnetically generated opposing magnetic fields. The road-tyre friction heat at high speeds is countered by wing intakes, while a central housing and rear-mounted fin maintain the vehicle's stability at speed. Safety airbags are fitted as standard.
