After a speed record of 508 km / h marred by lies, will the SSC Tuatara beat the 490 km / h of the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+?
Last year, SSC announced an incredible speed record with the Tuatara. In addition to a peak at over 523 km / h, the American supercar claimed the new absolute speed record in both directions (with an average of 508 km / h). Enough to ridicule the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+, capping at “only” 490 km / h (and in one direction of traffic).
But a few days later, Youtubers managed to prove that the figures put forward by SSC did not at all match the images of the video of the record. In the process, SSC recognized the falsity of this information by advancing “assembly errors”. A few days ago, SSC still broke the official speed record for the Koenigsegg Agera RS, averaging 455 km / h in both directions. But this mark remains 51 km / h below the claims of the first record. And far from the top speed of the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ (490 km / h).
Over 300 mph?
According to the man who drove the SSC Tuatara at the last record (who is also the owner of the car), there is however “enough to exceed 300 mph” (482.8 km / h) on a track more longer than that of Florida used in the successful attempt. And another attempt will be organized as soon as possible by SSC. So, will the American supercar manage to run faster than the Bugatti Chiron 300+ fairly?
