Monterey, California
July 25, 2019

The first production SSC Tuatara to debut at the Monterey Car Week, with official delivery event to take place at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering.

SSC North America will hold an official public event where the first customer of a SSC Tuatara will be given the keys to their new hypercar. The event will be held at 12:10 pm during the show at SSC North America's display area. Members of the press and attendees of the car show are encouraged to attend the event to witness the reveal of the car to the public for the first time. This event marks the beginning of a new era of production hypercars, as customers will begin taking delivery of their Tuataras. Although this is the first customer to take possession of a Tuatara, future customers and members of the press have had the opportunity to experience its extreme performance and track-level handling, hailing it for its comfort, drivability, and driving experience unlike any other car on the market.

With production underway and orders being filled, SSC North America also looks to the near future for extreme performance validation in a production Tuatara. Years of design, engineering, and testing has laid the foundation for unparalleled results in speed, handling, safety, and drivability.

Customers, members of the press, car enthusiasts, and fans will have multiple opportunities to get a close up look at the SSC Tuatara during the Monterey Car Week. SSC North America will also be attending Exotics on Broadway, with pop-up interactions with the public and press throughout the week.
