SSC Tuatara hypercar sets new world speed recordJanuary 27, 2021
This time, apparently, the company and the SSC Tuatara car managed to get into the Guinness Book of Records.
SSC North America has again attempted to set a world speed record. To do this, the SSC Tuatara hypercar was taken to the former runway, intended for landing shuttles in Florida. As a result of two races, the car showed an average speed of 282.9 mph, which corresponds to 455.28 km / h. At the same time, the maximum speed in one direction was 286.1 mph, which corresponds to a speed of 460.43 km / h.
The SSC Tuatara thus became the fastest production car on the planet, breaking the previous record set by the Koenigsegg Agera RS hypercar in 2017. Recall that it was 277.87 mph or 447.19 km / h. In August last year, the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ hypercar was able to accelerate to 304.77 mph or 490.48 km / h, but the race took place only in one direction and was not counted.
Earlier, the speedme.ru edition reported that the SSC Tuatara hypercar tried to set a world speed record last fall, but due to the pandemic, telemetry had to be set up by the company’s specialists, which led to the receipt of erroneous data. In January, the company again attempted to set the record, but the owner was behind the wheel of the hypercar, who could not accelerate to the required speed.
