    SSC Tuatara is Officially the World’s Fastest Production Vehicle

    There is now a new world’s fastest production car and it just so happens to be the SSC Tuatara hypercar from the United States. The Tuatara is a 1,750 horsepower hypercar that will now go down in history after record-breaking high-speed passes by Oliver Webb.

    The record-breaking runs took place outside of Las Vegas on a seven-mile stretch of State Route 160. With officials on hand to verify the world record, Webb took off to hit a top speed of 331.15 mph. He then had to complete a second pass within an hour and managed 301.07 mph. His average speed was 316.11 mph. This speed absolutely blows the Koenigsegg Agera RS’s speed of 277.87 mph, leaving no doubt that the SSC Tuatara is the world’s fastest production car.

    Know the car owner Larry quite well. He also owns the Shelby SSC that held the top speed record in 2007 I believe. He gave the car to a professional driver for this top speed run but he will try for the 0-250-0 record himself. Lest you worry about him he races in the Ferrari Corsa clienti program in a FXXK and is quite good at it
