The Tuatara is a hypercar unlike any other. It is the culmination of over a decade of research and development to produce a road legal, high performance vehicle capable of delivering an otherworldly driving experience. Influenced by fighter jet aerodynamics and performance, the presence of the Tuatara inspires a sense of both intensity and simplistic design.
The SSC Tuatara is officially the world’s fastest production car. With an average two-way speed of 282.9 mph over 2.3 miles, SSC broke the standing record of 278mph.
This happened last week while testing at JBPG in Kennedy Space Center on SSC’s quest to break 300 mph.The 1750-hp SSC Tuatara is officially the world’s fastest production car.
The car is powered by a 6.9-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, the capacity of the engine was later reduced to 5.9 liters in order to allow the engine to have a higher redline of 8,800 rpm.
