SSC Just Announced A 2,200HP Version Of Its Record-Breaking Tuatara Hypercar

Ever since the SSC Tuatara made its record-breaking run last October, the vehicle has been plagued by misfortune. First, it was discovered that the 331-mph top speed video was actually faked, after which the car only reached a 282.9mph average during a re-do. To make matters worse, it was then damaged in a carrier crash on its way to Florida for another attempt.

But SSC is nothing if not determined, having just unveiled two new versions of the Tuatara — the ‘Striker’ and the ‘Aggressor’ — that take the vehicle’s performance to a whole new level. In the case of the former, the American automaker has overhauled the aerodynamics to give the Tuatara both fixed and active rear wings, a vertical stabilizer, as well as an augmented diffuser, enabling three times as much downforce (1,100lbs) at 160mph and near-perfect balance front to rear. And when it comes to the ‘Aggressor,’ you’ll find that SSC has turned the Tuatara up to 11, tuning its 1,750hp twin-turbo V8 to put out a mind-boggling 2,200hp and fitting it with the same aero treatment as its counterpart. While some 100 Strikers will be built, just 10 Aggressors are planned for production. Head to the link below for more.
