SSC Tuatara breaks world speed record



A little-known American automaker has just snatched the title of world’s fastest production car.
SSC North America announced that its Tuatara hypercar reached an average speed of 316.11 miles per hour during two record-breaking dashes outside Las Vegas.
The vehicle, which was tested on a seven-mile stretch of a Nevada highway, also reached the highest speed ever achieved on a public road, at 331.15 miles per hour, according to the company. The official top speed of 316 miles per hour is the result of two runs in opposite directions, to account for wind and road variations.
SSC said that two independent witnesses were on site to verify the world records.
The Tuatara, which has butterfly doors and produces 1,750 horsepower from a turbocharged V-8 engine, is the second vehicle built by SSC to earn the title of world’s fastest production car, according to the company. It says the model’s aerodynamic design was inspired by fighter jets, taking more than a decade of research and development.
SSC, which bills itself as “America’s first hypercar company,” was founded in 1998 in Richland, Washington. SSC CEO Jerod Shelby, who is not related to legendary auto designer and racer Carroll Shelby, said the team’s performance exceeded his own expectations, and was especially gratifying after “years of setbacks and challenges.”

  1. It could've done 350mph easily under better conditions but a 318mph average under all conditions is just insane considering that the Buggati Chiron 300 only did 304mph under PERFECT conditions

  2. The Government Covered up my Federal Court Lawsuit with Corrupt Bias Judge Salvador Mendoza Jr. in the Eastern District of Washington State… The Corrupt Bias Judge Salvador Mendoza Jr. misrepresents court cases by being involved in putting a 42: 1983 Civil Rights Act Code, not wanting to put in the codes and reasons that I filed the lawsuit such as Fraud and Racketeering, etc. and doesn’t want to talk about why he is representing the case with that 42: 1983 Civil Rights Act Code…You will learn about Discrimination, Retaliation, Fraud, Racketeering/Organized Crime…and how teachers are stealing from Children and Students at Yakima College, Wenatchee College, The Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges, Mansfield School District Washington State K-12, and Government Corruption at the Local, State, and Federal Level…Ring Leader Yakima Valley College Teacher and Dental Hygiene Program Coordinator Cheri Podruzny put in the order for Wenatchee Valley College English 203 Research Teacher Leslie Lamkin to illegally remove, not install, and misrepresent my Assignments in my English 203 Research Class, so she could deny my Bachelors of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene Degree… In an email Cheri Podruzny accepted the English 203 Research class at Wenatchee Valley College as the last college coursework needed to complete in order to obtain my BASDH Degree. (See evidence numbered: 000110 or page 110 in the evidence section, etc.)… I emailed Leslie Lamkin trying to get my Summary #1 Assignment back into the Wenatchee Valley College Canvas Computer System. Leslie Lamkin emails me on June 26, 2018 at 1:49 PM that states, “I can assure you that nobody is going to dig back into the course assignments to make sure you completed all the work listed in the Syllabus.” (Lamkin) Leslie Lamkin knows that Cheri Podruzny changed the Bridge Program Paperwork to make sure I have all the requirements that she knows Leslie Lamkin frauded by illegally removing, not installing, and misrepresenting all my major requirements. This way they both benefit by stealing my money for English Class, the books, the Bridge Program Crosswalk and Fees, and all my hard work spent to get the BASDH Degree that I have proof that I earned.

I, Dayvin Knemeyer, retain David O Defense for representation on the matter of obtaining his Bachelors of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene degree from Yakima Valley Community College. In the alternative, if Mr. Knemeyer is not provided his degree we would pursue a lawsuit, including trial if necessary, for the same and damages.

David O Defense agrees to provide all legal services for a flat fee of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00) Mr. Knemeyer has paid in full the retainer agreement.

At Mansfield Luke Hall emails Leslie Lamkin and states, “I saw a bunch of your 7th graders are on the D and F list out of your room. Are they missing something or something they need to work on?” (Luke Hall Mansfield) Leslie Lamkin emails Luke Hall and states, “It’s a combination of missing assignments and laziness.” (Leslie Lamkin Mansfield) Luke Hall emails Leslie Lamkin and states, “Ok. Read them the riot act on both.” (Luke Hall Mansfield) The kids in Mansfield are having missing assignments just like I did. I was cheated, so the kids in Mansfield are most likely being cheated too. Why doesn’t anybody care about the kids at Mansfield? (See evidence numbered: (See evidence numbered: 000233-000245, 000249)…

  3. Koenigsegg, Bugatti, and Hennessey all just got bamboozled by a forgotten player in the top speed world, once again scc comes after Bugatti, I wonder how Bugatti, Koenigsegg, and Hennessey will respond now that scc has made it clear they’re a contender for the fastest car in the world

  4. After watching the video on Top gear and SSC YouTube channel this car without a doubt can go faster as at 330mph this car has more to give when the driver let off the gas.
    Question is if the tires can handle it? I wouldn't doubt if the Tuatara can top out at 360 to 370 mph.

  5. That thing is a hunk if garbage. That car is purely a marketing tactic by announcing some unverified, irrelevant top speed. All motor head know its about acceleration, handling, performance, and quality for the price. The only place you can drive a car anywhere close to 300 miles per hour is on a miles long run way. A 911 turbo s, koenigsegg one 1, lamborghini aventador svj would make a mockery out of the garbage.
