Though still not as fast as it was originally claimed to be, the Tuatara is edging closer to 300 and still accelerating hard when the driver lifts.

In the 10 months since SSC had to admit its car never hit 331 mph as originally claimed, the company has been trying to rehabilitate its reputation. First it reclaimed the official speed record with a two-way average of 282.9 mph, without beating the Bugatti Chiron’s 304.7-mph one-way record. And now it’s nudging closer to 300 mph, possibly putting the Chiron’s one-way speed within reach.

SSC’s newest video shows the Tuatara climbing to 295 mph at Space Florida’s Launch and Landing Facility. The car is still accelerating at 295 mph, but SSC says the car ran out of room. Still, you can see how tough it is to get a car to 295 just by watching the dozens of micro-adjustments driver Larry Caplin has to make on the run.

The company also took great pains to make sure this run is validated, inviting Racelogic (makers of the Vbox companies use to measure precise speed, and who we use to measure lap times at our track events) to observe and verify its data. Next time, if the company can get the Tuatara above 300 mph, it wants to makes sure it has its numbers straight. But while the Racelogic tech claims that the SSC is the only thing capable of crossing that line, at least one automaker has beaten them to the punch, even if SSC founder Jerrod Shelby doesn’t recognize it.
