Ladies and Gentlemen, get ready for some nerve tingling news. According to a local newspaper Pahrump Valley Times, the SSC Tuatara has become the world's fastest production car breaking the previous record set by the Koenigsegg Agera.

SSC did a secret run in Nevada with their 1,750 horsepower hypercar and have broken the Guinness World Record for the fastest production car.

The run took place State Route 160 in southern Nevada. In order to set the record, a car must do two runs to take care of the effects of headwinds and tailwinds. The average speed of both the runs is taken. The Agera averaged a speed of 277.9 mph.

While Bugatti did break the 300mph record with the Chiron SS, the hypercar only achieved 304mph while going in one direction. SSC also aims to break the 300mph record set by Bugatti with the Tuatara.

As of now, there is no official confirmation from SSC about this.

  • As a Koenigsegg fan, it’ll be a hard pill to swallow for me seeing the Agera dethroned, but I’m happy Koenigsegg has actual competition

    • If u see their runs,the car actually doesn't seem as stable as a Konnisegg,but maybe they have made it better than the last time I had seen their video.

  • The problem I have with minnow hypercar makers is your putting your life in the hands of a company that doesn’t have endless resources to test cars like VW has with Bugatti. If I was ever doing this sorts of speeds I’d far rather do it in a Chiron and not something with little or no aero.

  • To me, the Chiron has the record and therefore if the SSC gets over 300 but below 305 I don’t think it has actually won, although Guinness will say they did. I’m actually team Koenigsegg but Bugatti currently has the fastest car
