First of all, we would like to know the truth… Who is the professional car enthusiast of Arab GT followers that knew the name of this American supercar before reading this article to watch its mighty acceleration?
We have mentioned the star of this article in some previous articles, its name is SSC Tuatara, and it represents a supercar class that competes against both; The French car Bugatti Chiron, which we previously test-drove with Suhaib Shashaa, and the Swedish car Koenigsegg Jesko, which we met at its first global launch at the 2019 Geneva motor show in Switzerland.
