Not much news circulating lately about artificial rival Bugatti Veyron SSC, Tuatara. Blowing the news speculation even said the project could be deadlocked.
SSC development has now reached the final testing and validation settlement Tuatara engine, twin-turbocharged 7.0-liter V-8. According to data on the results of the dyno, the engine is able to achieve performance of 1,350 horsepower and 1,290 lb.ft with ease, using the fuel type 91 octane petrol.

Testing is done to examine the ability of the machine while at 5,500 rpm and added with a heavy load. Tuatara simulation was crossing slippery hill. Such a test is said to be tiring when compared with sped up to 442 km / h in theory. The machine was also tested in the real world, before the engine is installed on the tuatara, the engine was tested in the Ultimate Aero supercar body.
Three years is the development of the SSC Tuatara and say their car is very easy to control. The entire force will be applied to both rear wheels through a seven-speed sequential automatic transmission, or a seven-speed manual transmission.
