The SSC Tuatara is a supercar set to be manufactured in the future by Shelby Super Cars.


The SSC Tuatara uses a four-Cam 7.0-litre twinturbo V8 that reaches 9,000rpm and delivers 1,350hp. The car weighs 2,600 pounds so it manages over 1,000hp per tonne. The Tuatara reaches 0–62 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds and the top speed is an estimated 275 miles per hour.[1] If this top speed is accurate, it would make the Tuatara the world's fastest production car.


The SSC Tuatara will be $970,000 when it comes on sale in January 2013 (est)
