Shelby 1331bhp, 275mph Tuatara

Shelby SuperCars announces 1331bhp, 275mph ‘Tuatara’

7.0-litre twin-turbo V8, 275mph top speed makes it faster than the Bugatti Veyron SuperSport, and thus the fastest production car in the world.

Extensive use of carbon fibre, £500,000 price tag.

Designed by current Saab design director Jason Castriota (who created Ferrari P4/5 and Maserati GranTurismo).

Bad ass:

Shelby SuperCars has revealed the successor to the SSC Aero, going by the name of Tuatara.

Details of a release date are yet to be revealed, but don’t be surprised if SSC has another crack at relieving Bugatti of its record. Just 12 Tuataras will be built at a price ranging from $190,000 to $325,000, depending on options.
