The Design

The SSC Tuatara is a hypercar at its core. The design and production involve years of research and endless trials. Hence, it requires precision engineering to manufacture such a high-performance vehicle that is road legal. This car gives an unmatched driving experience.

Besides, its aerodynamics takes inspiration from a fighter jet, while its design has simplicity and intensity at its core. The timeless form factor with futuristic profile marks its presence on the road. So, it demands attention wherever it goes.

Furthermore, The body design is done by Jason Castriota, the world's renowned car designer. Every curve on the body is enticing and has aerodynamic qualities that reduce aerodynamic drag.

Also, the butterfly doors open upwards, making the cabin more accessible and stylish. The front and rear deck lids open, and the real excitement begins. These lids show off robust monocoque carbon fiber and also expose the suspension system. The forward deck has a storage compartment. The rear deck opens the door to the marvel of engineering of a powerful power train.
