The SSC Tuatara is an upcoming limited-production hypercar by SSC that serves as the successor to the SSC Aero.

Description

The SSC Tuatara is the successor to the SSC Ultimate Aero and the result of a design collaboration between Jason Castriota and SSC. SSC has plans to launch the car in 2017.

The SSC Tuatara uses an in-house-developed billet-aluminum 6.9L (6,941 cc) twin-turbocharged V8 engine redlining at 9,200 rpm and delivering a minimum of 1350 hp (1007 kW) and 1042 ft·lb (1413 N·m), both at 6,800 rpm, while the car runs on 91 octane unleaded premium petrol gas. The V8 engine will be capable of higher outputs of up to 1700 hp (1268 kW). The car weighs 2750 lb (1247 kg) thanks to its carbon fiber construction (wheels included) and aluminum crumple zones; all this will allow the Tuatara to manage a power-to-weight ratio of over 1000 hp per tonne.

SSC claims that the Tuatara's 0-60 mph sprint will be done in 2.5 seconds, the quarter mile in 9.75 seconds at 144 mph (232 km/h), and the projected speed 276 mph (444 km/h). The Tuatara will record 1.05 g on the skidpad and brake from 60 mph (97 km/h) to a stop in 103 ft (31 m).

SSC showcased the car's pre-production prototype and components in 2011. Production of the car had been delayed multiple times until 2017, when SSC North America's new headquarters will be at West Richland, Washington. The Tuatara is scheduled to be released in the 2019 model year, with an improvised appearance and produces 1,750 bhp with E85 flex fuel. It's main competitior is the Bugatti Chiron, the Koenigsegg Regera and the Agera RS, and the Hennessy Venom F5.

Asphalt 7: Heat

The SSC Tuatara is one of the fastest and last cars in the game, at the high end of Tier 7. It could only be obtained via a special event.

SSC Tuatara base stats

Unlike the previous game, the SSC Tuatara is now more easily accessible. Prior to its release in The Great Wall Update, it appeared as an Al racer in an Easter Egg event in April 2014 before appearing as an event-unlockable car, with the top 100 getting it.

The SSC Tuatara currently stands as a low-mid-end Class S car, with a starting rank of 1561, a MAX rank of 1659, and a MAX+PRO rank of 1725. The car held the record of the lowest Tuning Kit rank boost, with +24, until the addition of the nanoFlowcell QUANT FE during the Enduro Update. It has a Speed Modification of 85.74%, which is the lowest in the game (shared with the SSC Ultimate Aero XT, Hennessey Venom GT, Koenigsegg One:1 and Devel Sixteen Prototype); it is also the first car to be added with this Speed Modification. The Tuatara mainly rivals the W Motors Lykan HyperSport, Holden Coupe 60, Lamborghini Estoque, and Mercedes-AMG GT3.

The SSC Tuatara, much like the W Motors Lykan HyperSport, features decent all-round stats, with a balance of nitro power and efficiency (7/12/17), top speed, and handling.

With its massive upgrade costs and inferior performance to its rival, the Tuatara is nothing more than a collector's car. Subsequent updates after its debut have slowly pushed it from a top tier Class S to a low-mid class car. The only use left of the Tuatara is counting towards the U.S. Monsters, New World Glory, and Extra Horses collection, the latter of which awards three free Class S upgrades as a MAX reward, useful for upgrading the Mosler Super GT, which has token-only upgrades, as well as obtaining A8Tokens 60 from it's fifth Mastery race. The Tuatara still appears in events involving low-to-low-mid-end Class S cars, though, and as the cheapest car available to use in the 9FF GT9 VMAX Cup (a multi-day event), it was used by many players attempting to obtain the 9FF prior to the car's delisting in Porsche Update.

The SSC Tuatara costs A8Credits 950,000 to buy and A8Credits 2,328,000 to max out. All cars released after the Tuatara would follow its multi-million price on upgrades.
