SSC Tuatara Hypercar Takes to the Road in Latest Video

The SSC Tuatara hypercar takes to a twisty mountain road on a dreary day in the latest video.

The SSC Tuatara is America’s answer to the Koenigsegg Jesko and Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+. So, what’s common between these cars, you might ask. Well, all three are members of the new 300 mph club. While the Tuatara and Jesko have a claimed top speed in excess of 300 mph, the Chiron SS 300+ has already shown the world that it can reach 305 mph. Watch the video of the record run here.

The Tuatara is powered by a 5.9-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 that develops 1,750 hp on E85 fuel and is paired with a 7-speed automated manual transmission. SSC claims that it can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds.

Unlike their previous attempts at making the world’s fastest production car, the new one is certainly a looker. We really like the mean and aggressive looks of Tuatara. It does look like a 300 mph machine. Apparently, it has a coefficient of drag of just 0.279. Production of the SSC Tuatara kicked off in June this year. The first car is expected to be delivered sometime around end-2019.

Apart from SSC, another US-based automaker is building a 300 mph hypercar. Down in Texas, Hennessey is working on the Venom F5 that is also expected to enter the 300 mph club.
