The car that Kevin Doran originally described as a potential Audi beater.  The SSC2K certainly embodied all that was contemporary in design thinking.  And that's interesting to note considering it took some two years to go from drawing board to the track.  But it never quite reached its potential and that's not for lack of effort on Crawford's end.
