An SSV was used by the human Captain Scarlet and Captain Brown to travel to New York to make safety arrangements for the World President, after the Mysterons threaten to assassinate him. However, the Mysterons interfere with the car's controls and it crashes, killing both men on board. The car and the two men are then reconstructed.
