SSC Tuatara wants to exceed 482 km / h over just 3.7 kilometers


To prove that the Tuatara can approach or exceed 500 km / h, SSC will have to settle for a 3.7 km long airstrip. It might be a bit tight …

The American manufacturer SSC partially washed away the affront after the public humiliation suffered at the end of last year, when YouTubers succeeded in demonstrating that its announced speed record was totally false.

A few weeks ago, the SSC Tuatara indeed officially became the fastest car in the world, with an average top speed (in both directions of the same track) of 455 km / h. Enough to beat the Koenigsegg Agera RS which previously held the record (447 km / h), but very far from the claims made by SSC during the first contested record (more than 508 km / h average speed!).

New attempt in Florida

So, the SSC Tuatara will launch again on the test track of Johnny Bohmer in Florida. SSC boss Jerod Shelby thinks the car can exceed 300 mph (483 km / h) over this distance of just 2.3 miles (3.7 kilometers) with a little more preparation. Remember that to beat the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+, you will have to do better than 490 km / h in one direction of traffic.
