2012 SSC Tuatara | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. – 2012 awaits the entry of the newest offering from Shelby Super Cars (SSC), the 2012 SSC Tuatara. This car is aimed to unseating the Bugatti Veyron SS as the fastest car in the world. Jerod Shelby, founder and CEO of SSC, unveiled the Tuatara in the presence of a few people from the industry. Jerod Shelby is not related to Carroll Shelby, the legend behind all those muscle cars. The name of this supercar is derived from the Maori language that describes a resident reptile from New Zealand, Tuatara, means “peaks at the back.”
Shelby made the latest breakthrough from the field of car design, Shelby SSC issued a tuatara 2012. SSC 2012 tuatara is a super advanced car with aerodynamic design and is supported by the latest mesih. SSC was surprised at how quickly the Ultimate Aero reached 200 MPH, but more importantly, the team has now determined what they felt was the perfect gear ratio for the new 7-speed transmission tuatara.
The battle for the title of “World’s Fastest Production car” has just heated up again. And this time its round two of the classic David vs. Goliath encounter: diminutive Shelby Super Cars taking on the might of VW owned Bugatti. American one man show SSC, forced the world to take them seriously after the original Ultimate Aero snatched the title away from the Veyron with a run of 256mph, recorded on a four mile long Texas single carriageway that featured a dogleg bend that needed to be navigated at “just” 210mph. The man at the wheel was 71 year old Chuck Bigelow who had no racing experience and refused to wear even a crash helmet.

It will have the necessary features in driving a two seater, such as the seatbelts and auto air conditioner. Speculation has it that the inside of the Tuatara will live up to its reputation in addition to providing easy viewing and access LCD central displays.
2012 SSC Tuatara Exterior :
2012 SSC Tuatara Exterior. – The front looks intimidating or dominant and directional with low body and light carbon fiber. Look closely, you’ll see a vent for carbon brakes and front splitter produces downforce cohesive enough to keep the nose on his speed. Low niche with air intake in front of the rear wheel arches and a much needed cooling radiator cold air, while doing little to balance the look. It checks all the boxes hypercar and then some. No hood or trunk space, or some sort of compromise with this car. Side profile sleek and sexy there are no door handles or side repeaters and the car was almost standing on top of one meter. The first element is the Aero is maintained, especially doors and simple piece of party spoked wheel design.
The outgoing Ultimate Aero was very generic in its looks. The body, like the rest of the car, was designed by company owner Jerod Shelby (no relation to muscle car legend Carroll Shelby). He admits that the need for slippery aerodynamics governed the outcome of the final product and being an engineer by trade, design wasn’t his greatest strength. Enter Italian American designer Jason Castriota who, in the beginning, had reservations about taking on the project. We couldn’t really blame him after looking at his impressive resume. He has penned cars for the very best in the industry: Ferrari, Pininfarina, Rolls Royce, and Bertone to name but a few.

The engine, like all the other mechanical parts, are all developed in house by SSC themselves. The new powerplant shares a lot with the old 6.2 liter item the block and its innards are the same design, so are the dimensions and location of its 10 radiators. The new setup is good for a colossal 1350HP and will rev to 9000RPM! Zero to 62mph will arrive in around 2.8 seconds and SSC claims a top speed of, wait for it, 275mph!… The in gear acceleration figures are not known as of yet, but you can be sure they will be absolutely mind blowing. Changes come in the form of a four valves per cylinder overhead cam (OHC) setup as opposed to push rods and new SSC spec turbochargers. Source: topspeed.com.
