Default SSC Tuatara - Fastest Prod car! 532 km/h!

WOW! That is one fast hyper car! 331 mph !

Now it's up the folks at Guiness to verify/confirm/stamp their approval. Cheers! T7

No question, the Tuatara is a very fast car! But the speed record... I doubt it.

See this video:

Who cares about what car is the fastest, every year they try to make or produce the fastest car in the world.. in reality you can not drive that fast on any highway in the world, not even on the German autobahn because guess what, even the autobahn has a speed limit!

To me the important question becomes, what car is the Greatest car in the world and not just the fastest..

Hi Rudi, thank you for the video link; a lot of research and analysis from the gentlemen backing his doubts. I guess we will leave it to the people at GWR to see if they will issue the paperwork/approval.

Maybe he should have a 'Zoom' call with the Dewetron team. Cheers! T7

The GPS data was analysed by Dewetron, which has a fair bit of experience validating world speed record runs — its tech was used to verify four out of the past five. Dewetron on October 27 said its data shows the run was, indeed, a record, reports Motor Trend , and it’s confident enough in that conclusion to stake its name and reputation on the results.

True. The 'Greatest Car' in the world would be an interesting debate, based on the criteria that would come into factor to determine the 'Greatest'. The British, Italians, Germans, Americans, Japanese, Swedes and Canada would never come into agreement what the 'greatest' would be, for example. is the Volkswagen Beetle the greatest due to 21 million plus sold, and was on the market for 81 years? My bad, please scratch Canada off that list for auto manufacturers, I don't know if the Bricklin would make the 'greatest' list.

Or could it be a Volvo 1966 P1800 with over 3,250,257 miles on the odometer?
