The SSC Tuatara Is a Plane On Wheels – A Real Beast

Almost visually identical to the concept introduced about seven years ago, the Tuatara production model features a carbon body that gives it a traction coefficient of 0.27. The company claims this is significantly less than its first competitors Bugatti Chiron (0.36), Koenigsegg Agera (0.33), and Hennessey Venom F5 (0.33).

Overall, the car measures 182.4 in (4,633 mm) in length, 81.3 in (2,065 mm) width with a wheelbase of 105.2 in (2,672 mm).

The power of this car comes from a powerful V8 engine that produces 1750 hp and which allows a top speed of 300mph. The acceleration is amazing and the speed from 0 to 60 mph, this car can accelerate in 2.5 seconds, which makes it one of the fastest cars on the planet.

This engine will be connected to a seven-speed computerized manual transmission, which has a robotic shift system. For now, the company has refused to explain what these big words mean, but previously stated that the engine and gearbox will enable this brutal supercar to develop the projected maximum speeds that will work to break the current world record.

Only 100 units will be made, and the price of one will be 1.6 million dollars, which means that only the richest will manage to get it.

Check out the latest promotional clip that shows the power of this car and what it will offer its owners.
