SSC Tuatara!

Powering the Tuatara is a twin-turbocharged 5.9-liter flat-plane-crank V8. It produces 1,750 horsepower (1,305 kilowatts) on E85 and 1,350 hp (1007 kW) on 91 octane. Power routes through a robotized CIMA seven-speed transmission, capable of shifting gears in less than 100 milliseconds. With a dry weight of 2,750 pounds (1,247 kilograms) and a drag coefficient of 0.279, it should be superbly fast.

The Tuatara uses carbon fiber for the exterior and for the monocoque. There’s exposed carbon fiber in places, too. Jason Castriota, who has penned designs for Ferrari and Maserati, collaborated with SCC on the design and aerodynamics of the hypercar. The dihedral doors, which are button operated and hydraulically actuated, are as wild in design as the rest of the car.

SCC will build just 100 Tuatara hypercars. The company didn’t release pricing information with the debut; however, back in 2013, the company planned to charge $1.3 million each. This is an important car for SCC, and a worthy successor to the SCC Ultimate Aero, which held the Guinness World Record top speed title until the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport dethroned it. SCC believes the Tuatara can reach 300 miles per hour (483 kilometers per hour).
