This is the year. American supercars will hopefully be joined by a production version of the SSC Tuatara. Named for the fastest evolving animal, it is an evolution of their Ultimate Aero we first saw in 2011.

Given the immense budgets of the major automakers, we like to root for the underdogs in hopes they can change the industry. Much like the New Zealand reptile it is named for, the concept and prototypes have stayed ahead of competitors. Our friends at Miller Motorcars are not afraid to add a 10th brand to their breathtaking inventory, so the SSC was caught on arrival in Greenwich, CT. Turn up your audio for the SSC Tuatara start along with a nice sample of revs and idle.

Is It Worthy of Jay Leno's Collection?

Their website says it is powered by a 5.9L flat-plane V8 of their own design. This would give it an Italian sound with the ability to rev higher than most cars on the road. This footage was captured by WVM3DreamDrives along with a unique soundtrack. It looks right at home along with a Pagani Huayra and a LaFerrari, so tell us what you think of it in the comments below. If you are ready for 1,750 horsepower and 1,280 lb-ft of torque on e85, click the link below to see what Miller Motorcars has to offer. Stay with us for all your SSC updates!
