SSC finally admits that the 331 mph run was not correct
Fun fact is that Dewetron says that they haven't even seen the raw files

"Tuatara" is actually a cute reptile, but it's not a lizard, even though it looks very similar to them. Just in case you didn't know. :)

Apparently the Tuatara secretly broke the production car speed record recently clocking over 300 mph. Official announcement soon.

Here’s a clip of the car doing high-speed runs on a closed stretch of Washington highway.

This is officially my new favorite hypercar. It’s also the only one of these claimed “300 mph+ cars” that has reached customers. Bugatti’s isn’t due until next year, and Koenigsegg’s hasn’t been delivered yet. Love the engine, love the looks, love the interior.

This is another car that should be deleted. As far as i know, there was not a single car produced, not even a functioning prototype.

I will just be amazed if we ever see one of these powerful US 'veyron killing' motors ever post a proper lap time, as far as I can tell they go really fast in a straight line in the dry and thats about it.

Until I see ONE laptime on a real track from an SSC, venom or something These are the dodge tomahawks of the car world only not nearly as cool as the tomahawk.
