It took SSC nearly a decade to bring the Tuatara concept to fruition, but the hypercar has finally arrived as the first customer car was delivered earlier this year after a long wait. Using the “Life begins at 300” motto, the company has dropped a new video with the speed beast on an empty stretch of road, possibly in Eastern Washington. It would appear the company closed down a section of that road to film this short clip with the Tuatara at full tilt.
Not only we get to see the hypercar in action, but we’re also given the opportunity to hear the aggressive soundtrack delivered by the twin-turbo V8 engine with a flat-plane crank setup. It’s hooked up to a seven-speed paddle-shift transmission that changes gears in fewer than 100 milliseconds while sending 1,350 horsepower to the road. Mind you, the 5.9-liter engine delivers that power while feeding on 91 octane, but put E85 and it’ll churn a whopping 1,750 hp.
