Oh, it's on . Shelby Supercars is back, and this 2019 Tuatara – a car we saw for the first time many years ago – played the role of a very big fly in Koenigsegg and Bugatti's ointments.
Why? Because SSC has confirmed that the Tuatara 2019 will produce 1,750 hp. More than the Regera and Agera RS. More than the Chiron. About the same with the Hennessey Venom F5 (more on this in the next week)
Well, that's 1,750 hp for E85 Flex fuel. On regular 91 octane, there are only 1,350 hp. Still, it's a 5.9-liter V8, in the middle of the car, redlining at 8,800 rpm and packing a pair of turbochargers and dual injectors per cylinder.
That's up to a seven-speed & # 39; computer manual & # 39; Gearbox that equals sends all SSC horses to the rear wheels. Get it now: dry and free of liquids, SSC expects 1
In fact, the body and chassis are made of carbon fiber, and SSC has shaped the thing – a fine design – so that it has the lowest drag coefficient. At 0.279 it is lower than the Chiron, Agera and Venom.
There are no performance statistics yet, but we suspect that they will be revealed in due course. We also suspect that the performance numbers will be slightly scary because the hypercar game is going very well. As we say, it is on .
