SSC Tuatara
The mid-engine Tuatara has a twin-turbo 5.9-liter V8 powerplant producing 1750 horsepower and a massive 1280 lb-ft of torque. Power gets sent to the rear wheels via a CIMA 7-speed automatic gearbox, capable of shifts in less than 100 milliseconds. In addition to its astounding power, the Tuatara has an extremely low .279 drag coefficient. With active aerodynamics the Tuatara can maintain a 37:63 front to rear balance from 90 mph to beyond 300 mph. The company hopes to test this with the ultimate goal of surpassing 300 mph.
