Ultimate Aero SSC Tuatara Supercar by toyonda Ultimate Aero SSC Tuatara Supercar by toyonda

Ultimate Aero Tuatara

Jason Castiota was the one responsible for styling this exotic beauty and the true American
monster made by Shelby supercars (Not having to do anything with Carroll Shelby, who has modified
a wide range of Ford Mustangs and arguably the most famous and glorious race car ever built, the
mid-engined GT40 which won at Le mans during the 1960s)

Now SSC is set to reclaim the manufacturer of the world’s fastest production title from Bugatti
with a brand new supercar, a supercar that will go by the name Tuatara (pronounced twu-tar-ah).
Yes, SSC has taken a page out of Pagani’s book and given its latest supercar a name almost as
strange as Huayra, but there is some reasoning behind the decision.

The name Tuatara was inspired by the Maori word for a lizard found in New Zealand. The Maori '
are the indigenous people of the tiny island nation. The Tuatara lizard boasts the fastest
evolving DNA in the world, and this fast-paced evolution is something SSC’s designers think
their new supercar encapsulates.

As the founder of SSC, Jerod Shelby explains: “Most manufacturers essentially use the same
basic model and body shape for up to 10 years, while only making small refinements to it each
year. After only three years in production with the Ultimate Aero, SSC’s Tuatara is about
to monumentally evolve in the areas of sophistication, design, aerodynamics and shear
all-around performance. We felt that the fastest evolving DNA was a perfect definition of
SSC’s latest project.”

Along with the new name, SSC also released more specs for its upcoming supercar. Its body will
be composed entirely of carbon fiber and wrapped around a chassis made of the same stuff.
The crash structures will be aluminum, however, though the wheels will also be made from
carbon fiber.

The engine will be a twin-turbocharged 7.0-liter V-8 developing upwards of 1,350 horsepower,
and drive will be sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed manual transmission -- yes,
like the one Porsche is rumored to be working on for its new 911, or a seven-speed sequential
manual with paddle-shifters.

All done in pen and took 5 hours to do.

I remember spending almost 2 million dollars in buying and maxing the car in Asphalt 8... eating away my 2 months of hard work at that time...

But still the best car in A8...

There is a Bugatti Veyron in Asphalt 8, but not the Super Sport, it's the Grand Sport Vitesse. I remember buying the Veyron for almost 130,000 dollars in the game but I didn't max the car. The SSC Tuatara costs 950,000 in the game and I spent a million more dollars in fully upgrading the car

If I were to choose my MR exotics, this will be one of my favorites beside of CCX and Zonda. I hope it will be available in RHD as well. :iconmahfeelzplz:

Chance of this being RHD is very low if I am being honest, but then, like commisioned supercars, it could certainly be possible.

So they can make the RHD version if there's enough demand for it, I suppose...? :iconmisakithinkplz:

yeah, but then, this costs $2 million USD, so very very few buyers.

...perhaps race team owners are not included, then...? With such specification, it sure would be exciting to see this car on tracks, competing with other hypercars. :iconhakaseconfuseniplz:

it is on the market, but takes 16 moths for completion once the order has been put.

and it's price is massive for a new supecar brand, $2 million USD, so, not a lot of buyers.

Roddy1990 Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2014
Indeed it is, but then again...Arabs have lot of money, they can easily pay for it...

Hell, there's that Lycan Hypersport, one of the most expensive cars in the world, at $3.4 million...don't know about any units sold, but a cheaper example of a car made by a company with not much history just as the Lykan...Zenvo ST1...

€660,000...nearly $1 million...and some Arab already got one :lol: www.youtube.com/watch?v=it2Umy…


So...it's not impossible to find buyers...you just need to look in the right places :P

Whoa badass ride!
Does it come in dark blue with white and blue leather seats and a powerful V-12 engine?

nope, quad turbo V8, Americans love V8, and it's probably the best thing they have given to car maniacs worldwide.

A turbo V8? It would be way better with a V12 now that's a engine!
