Video: SSC Tuatara hits 331 mph

At 200 mph, it begins to stretch its legs.

I have to say, after all the years of hype from Jerod, it actually came together.

This is an incredible step forward, it's not just an incremental gain.

It's going to be interesting to see how the Jesko compares. The SSC may have really taken the wind out of Christian's sails.

Damn, they didn't just beat the record, they kicked its ass all the way off the schoolyard.

No return run?

Edit: on wiki it says they did a return run
316.11mph is the official record (average). So the return run was about 30mph slower I guess (shows how important that return run is; the chiron didn't do one...)

Fastest Production car? Some debate but here it is

SSC's Tuatara claims world's fastest car record with 508-km/h average
The Shelby SuperCars V8 "production" hypercar maxed out at 532 km/h (331 mph)

The analysis Iíve seen of the run is interesting, and certainly casts doubt on the claims.

The car looks incredible though.

I will say, the Dewetron confirmation of the claim does seem to put the matter to rest. They stand to gain nothing but lose a huge amount if they either faked or incorrectly measured the results.

it is interesting about the claims... at first i thought it was just bugatti/koenigsegg being salty and trying to smear by paying off youtube influencers. But there are some legit youtube guys casting doubt with compelling facts. interesting to see how it plays out.

It's a scam by SSC.

SSC says they posted the wrong video.

Dewetron is distancing itself from verifying the claims.

The fallout will be fascinating.

Yeah, that is definitely an interesting development. Dewetron said they didn't have personnel present, but that SSC was a trained customer using their products.

It will be interesting to see what the analysis of the data shows. SSC being shown to have faked the record attempt would be pretty incredible. It is one thing to make speculative claims about the car's potential, it is something entirely different to fake data about an actual series of runs, not to mention all of the press and video they put out.

Let's give them a couple of days to get their act together. It could be just the error of posting the wrong video. It seems plausible.

What would faking the top speed get them? There's no bragging rights if you didn't actually do something. I'm not sure how, in 2020 when everyone had time on their hands to over analyze everything, how they would think they could get away with this if it's complete BS.

This did turn into a mess pretty quickly. Of course Dewetron is going to distance itself, they weren't there. That would seem normal to me.

Ultimate accountability on the part of this man right here. More is learned from failure than success.

If there was a bit of discrepancy maybe, but that speed is so high he would know he'd get busted for lying. You know the data would be challenged and him BS'ing about it would cost him in the long run. Don't you think
