Out to recapture it's title of the fastest car in the world.
ssc aims to get the title back with the ludicrously powerful tuatara.
tuatara's v8 easily reached the automaker's performance target of 1350 hp and 1280 pound-feet of torque. to
put that into perspective, the veyron ss puts out only 1183 horsepower. even more interesting, though, is that ssc is claiming the engine can develop up to
1700 hp! the car's purpose: to top 280 mph and recapture the title of world's fastest production car, which it
held as recently as 2010 with the 1183 hp, twin-turbo v8 ultimate aero tt which ran 256.427 mph.
