You are passionate about sports cars? You are at the right place! CarSwitch, the best website for selling cars in Dubai has brought you all you need to know about the new power busting vehicle in the sports industry, the SSC Tuatara. The Tuatara is manufactured by Shelby SuperCars, a North American company known for its sports cars. The Tuatara is a creation of a year-long research and application to give its riders the divine unworldly drive.



Its chic design is all you need to give a classic body a futuristic outlook. Designed by Jason Castriota, the Tuatara has a set of curves that give out the classic sports car look with the aerodynamics being simple giving it everything it needs to stand out! 

Adding to the magnificence are the butterfly doors that are a look into the interior, a powerhouse of a carbon fibre monocoque and the delicate suspension system. It has a storage compartment at the front with not much room but good enough to store some luggage. While the back stores the engine, transmission, driveshafts, differentials and the final drive also known as the power drive of an automobile. 



It is not only the exterior that is draw dropping, but also the interior with a unique and simple human-machine interface. The Tuatara comes with a digital driver display which gives the driver all necessary details to drive this marvellous invention.  

It has a located information console which can be accessed with a finger touch, one thing a driver can fully rely on. The interior has a teardrop canopy, giving the driver and passenger a good view. 


The sleek design is not only appealing to the eye, it plays a vital role in the speed of the car. The technically designed aerodynamics of the Tuatara are crafted for the vehicle to drift through the air in a momentum. Having a lower downforce also maintains a balance for the car to function properly.

The form of the car is not only for the eyes, it is a significant factor in maintaining a balance in all speeds. The rear static winglets, side-mounted buttresses, forward static wing, and a rear active wing are used as manipulators to distribute the flowing air towards the down force of the wheels. The air plays an important part in keeping the car cool by diverting the intakes and expelling itself through the perforations to maintain a deliberate airflow. In this way, a balance is created when the downforce is systematically spread across the car. 


In a sports car, all you look for is its performance. The speed is what really matters on the lapse! The Tuatara is a custom made V8 engine with a robotized manual transmission made by the Nelson Racing Engines. The robotized manual transmission is a CIMA 7 integrated with an Automatic AMT system. It is responsible for operating the engagement and selection of movement in the gearbox. This is a unique system with hydraulic-driven components and sensors which produce high force engagement, position accuracy, and load control within milliseconds. 

Furthermore, the clutch and gear selection actuation are electrically charged which leads to high precision and strategic operation. 

This engine makes this car a powerhouse in a sleek design. Having a speed of 580 kilometres per hour(kph) is quite a deal for this hypercar. The Tuatara has a flat-plane crank configuration which produces smooth and balanced power. It has 1750 horsepower with the E85 fuel while it has 1350 horsepower with the 91 octane functioning fuel.
