The heart of the Tuatara was revealed to the world with specific details to be announced at Peter Hay Hill on Friday, August 24th at 5:00 pm.
Although no specifications of the newly developed engine have been released to the public, the video unveils an automotive work of art that differs significantly from the original Tuatara engine previously announced by SSC.
"Meticulous engineering generating unadulterated power and an automotive work of art."
Founded by Jerod Shelby in 1998 in Richland, Washington, USA, SSC North America is the American hypercar company that created the Ultimate Aero and Tuatara. The Ultimate Aero, previously held the “Fastest Production Car” record, from 2007-2010, after it clocked 256.14 mph. It still stands among the fastest, most versatile supercars on the planet, and has served as the foundation for what would become the Tuatara hypercar. In 2021, the Tuatara reclaimed the world record for SSC, with an average of 282.9 mph, followed by a second test nineteen months later that achieved a top speed of 295.0 mph. SSC North America is producing 100 road legal SSC Tuatara hypercars, with 25 additional non-road legal variants. High-speed, high-downforce, and track versions are available to customers.
