SSC Tuatara Production May Finally Get Underway

Get ready for 1,350 horsepower.

It’s been a few months since we last heard anything from SSC, the company behind the upcoming Tuatara hypercar. Its previous insane creation was the Ultimate Aero. Although it’s taken some time to get off the ground, it’s being reported that SSC’s new production facility in West Richland, Washington is on schedule to begin construction this August. Completion should be done early next year. It will supposedly be a 40,000 square foot facility.

However, that doesn’t mean the company will be capable of mass production. As it stands now, just one Tuatara will be built per month. Output will likely increase over time. Overall this is very good news considering SSC had originally hoped to get the Tuatara on the road this year. It would be an outright shame if that 1,350 horsepower hypercar doesn’t get to see the light of day. All of that power comes from a 6.9-liter twin-turbo V8, allowing for a 0-60 mph time of just 2.5 seconds, a quarter-mile time in 9.75 seconds, and a top speed of 275 mph. SSC reportedly already has a few orders from anxious and wealthy customers.
