      The Tuatara has done it again. It managed to beat its own record within a week of setting a recorded speed of 331 mph. To put it in to perspective, the famed Koenigsegg Agera RS set a record of 277 mph in 2017. Since then, the Chiron Super Sport (SS) had broke the record at a speed of 304 mph but was never really intended as a production car. As for the SSC Tuatara averaging over 316 mph during the runs, we can easily forget the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport even exists.

      Oliver Webb, the one who was behind the wheel of the SSC, turns out to also be a professional racing driver, because there would be obvious safety risks when achieving speeds of 300+ mph. Webb could have achieved even more speed on the straight stretch of road if the crosswinds hadn't added the extra drag on the chassis.

      With a base price exceeding over $1.6 million USD, seeing one on public roads will be a rarity. All 100 pre-order slots have been sold out to customers across the globe. As for now, it could be a while before we see yet another record set by another company.

      Thanks for reading.

      • No reason for Mattel to pass on this, now. Fastest car on earth? It better get an HW version.

        Also, it's impressive how you got 9 bumps in about half an hour.

        • I need to go to Walmart and find the Chiron and Jesko Hot Wheels still, and agreed they should if the licensing isn't too expensive.

          And thanks.

        • 9 bumps in half an hour isn't anything crazy. A good quiz could get that in 10 minutes.
