How powerful is SSC Tuatara?
- SSC developed 1350 hp the Tuatara, which could one day be known as “Big Brother,” is powered by a 5.9-liter twin-turbo V-8.
- It delivers 1350 hp on the fuel pump and 1750 hp on the E85.
- Further development of the design. The Tuatara is a hypercar like no other.
- It is the conclusion of more than a period of research and development to produce a high-performance road vehicle.
- It can offer an otherworldly driving experience.
Who builds SSC Tuatara?
- SSC Tuatara/manufacturer
- The SSC Tuatara is a sports car developed, designed, and manufactured by the American automaker SSC North America (formerly Shelby SuperCars Inc.).
- Because once they set it off, top speeds of over 400 km / h are no more than a breeze for the best of them.
- For years, Bugatti and Hennessey fought for the crown of the fastest production vehicle globally.
- And even small car manufacturers repeatedly presented designs for high-speed road vehicles.
- Such speed records have less of an explicit use – they are more of a marketing tool for super sports car manufacturers.
- The fastest manufactured car in the world was a Koenigsegg – but now in second place.
SSC Tuatara on First place
- In October 2020, the SSC Tuatara broke the record.
- The super sports car from SSC North America reached an officially measured speed of 508.73 km / h during a test drive on a closed public road in Nevada.
- The 1,774 hp car with an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.5 seconds is named after the bridge lizard that lives in New Zealand: Tuatara in Maori.
- What precisely the rather sedate-looking animal is supposed to have to do with the superbold is unknown.
- In any case, SSC boss Jerod Shelby is too self-confident because of the record.
- “It’s been ten years since we set this record with our first car, the Ultimate Aero. And the Tuatara is leagues ahead.”
SSC Tuatara 2020 The first production example of the 1,750-horsepower super sports car
- The SSC Tuatara established a new record for the fastest production car globally with a breathtaking speed of 316.11 miles per hour.
- After a decade of production, the first supercar, the SSC Tuatara, made its public debut at the Philadelphia Auto Show in 2020.
- The City of Brotherly Love also arrives at the hometown of owner Dr. Larry Caplin.
- It was the venue to showcase his magnificent New Supercar, formerly Shelby Super Cars Inc.

- Fast onward to now, and the results are nothing short of amazing.
- Shelby made the pearly black SSC and former Pininfarina stylist Jason Castriota designed it .
- The Tuatara uses an aerospace-grade carbon fiber skin to achieve a dry weight of just 2,750 pounds.
- It uses fibre skin while riding on a 105.2-inch, 182.4-inch-long, and 81.3-inch-wide wheelbase.
- The aerodynamic wonder claims a coefficient of drag of 0.279.
- And it would maintain a neutral aerodynamic balance of 100 mph at a top speed of over 300 mph.
- The wonder of the 5.9-liter V8 mid-engine with twin turbochargers delivers incredible power with 1,750 horsepower and 1,280 lb-ft of torque.
