@fastestlaps, still haven't transferred the updated specs, i assume it doesn't take too long to adjust ;)

this needs to be updated

It will. SSC released a teaser recently.

Sucks this car is never going to make production.

Top speed: 443 kph
0 - 100 kph: 2.5 s

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.

Amazing

raul  6y ago

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.

I'll show more interest when they actually make the car work and show what it can do.

"Did they even started the production?"

No, they did not. As said some posts below the production is set for January 2014. But I personally doubt it will get in production then...


User avatar

Piorun  7y ago

Did they even started the production?
I do not belive in American motorization industry. Only Chevrolet doing well lately.

There is also a lot of great tuner companies there... but its kard to produce high-tech stuff in garage.

And do not even think about how many liters of petrol these 1350, respectively 1700 horses burn while a little joyride. Certainly, a Twin Turbo engine should be more economically then a naturally aspirated engine but average consumption should still be very high (I guess around 25-35 liters).

dddd  7y ago

"Even" 1350 hp is beyond imagination amount of power...absolutly insane, beyond insane.


User avatar

Fangio Man  7y ago

I somewhere read they will make a 1700 hp version, too. That huge amount of power would really be ridiculous in a road car. Even more than the "tiny" 1350 hp claimed...


User avatar

Sal30  7y ago

the first customer cars are being delivered next month-jan 2014.


User avatar

Fangio Man  7y ago

I guess the car will get in production in... 2016... Yeah, should be accurate...


User avatar

FastestLaps  7y ago

So this car is from 2012... yeah right :D

Thiago_Links probably typeo-ed the first digit of introduction year. It should be 3012.

Flabernat  7y ago

Looks like they're making some real progress on this car.
At least as of 04/24/2013

i highly doubt the streamliner would fear any better, despite my idea of how to fix the steering issue it would still be long and have massive blindspots and although engines have gotten more efficent it too would probably drink a lot


User avatar

lafars  7y ago

2 x 24 litre engines with 1350hp, definetly not good fuel consumption


User avatar

Shaggy  7y ago

@ Famgio Man & lafars: You'd be stopping at every gas station, even the ones across the street from each other, just to top off. :D


User avatar

Fangio Man  7y ago

@lafars
...and I do not want to start with the average consumption... :D


User avatar

lafars  7y ago

@fangio

and no reverse gear, we would get stuck with the first corner/junction we met XD


User avatar

Fangio Man  7y ago

@lafars
I am not sure if we would have much fun with these record cars. Most of them have a turning circle of like 1 kilometer...


User avatar

Shaggy  7y ago

I would make the Porsche 917 street legal, and add a second seat, a stereo, and air conditioning.

"BTW, when will Tuatara come as a production car already?"

SSC plans to deliver the first Tuatara by December of this year or January 2014.
