American hypercar SSC Tuatara has set a new world speed record. As part of the races, the car was able to accelerate to 484 km / h in the first attempt and up to 532.93 km / h during the second race, while the average speed of the car, recorded by the Guinness Book of Records specialists, was 508.73 km / h. The previous speed record was set by the Koenigsegg Agera RS hypercar. In two attempts, he accelerated to 444.6 km / h.

The race took place on a closed 11-kilometer stretch of State Route 160 in the state of Nevada. The hypercar was driven by British racer Oliver Webb. Recall that in order to get into the Guinness Book of Records in the “fastest car” section, a hypercar must make two races along the same track in the opposite direction. The average will go into the Book.

The SSC Tuatara hypercar is equipped with a 5.9-liter turbo engine with 1,750 hp. With such a power unit, the coupe accelerates from zero to 100 km / h in 2.5 seconds, and the declared “maximum speed” is 502 km / h. As you can see, the real results have exceeded all the expectations of the creators of this model.
