BORN OUT OF PASSIONShelby SuperCars develops its marques to provide unparalleled performance for the most discerning supercar drivers.While other manufactures seek marginal performance gains for massive sacrifice in the driver’s experience, SSC does not forget that above all, a supercar must stimulate the senses each time it is driven. From the sound of the door opening, to the awakening of the engine, and the overall feel of being in control, it is SSC’s fastidious approach to design that enables a distinctive visceral experience for the supercar driver.SSC believes a supercar should not be too easy to drive where it is boring or too raw that it is unsafe. Striking the balance to enable an exciting yet predictable, intuitive yet challenging, and breathtaking yet serene driving experience is SSC’s mantra.
SSC Announces Name of Next Generation SupercarWEST RICHLAND, (7 / 18 / 2011)Shelby SuperCars (SSC), the American supercar manufacturer and creator of the world record breaking Ultimate Aero, is proud to introduce its latest contribution to automobile enthusiasts worldwide. Following several years of design and development of its revolutionary new supercar, SSC has named its new car TUATARA (pronounced twu‐tar‐ah).“The design specifications for the Next Generation SSC were so extreme; we knew early on that a proper name would be a key piece of the puzzle for this project,” says Jerod Shelby, Founder, Lead Designer and CEO of SSC.The name “Tuatara” was inspired by a modern day New Zealand reptile that bears the same name. A direct descendent of the dinosaur, this reptile’s name translated from the Maori language means “peaks on the back,” which is quite fitting, given the winglets on the back of the new car.
Have you have thought of having your own Batmobile in your garage? Most of the enthusiasts have, but only few of them have realized this dream to drive a car that everyone recognizes.There are several companies these days in the USA which are manufacturing the bodyworks of the 1989 Batmobile. However, building an ordinary GM-powered replica was not enough for Putsch Racing from Dublin, Ohio so the crew decided to install a Boening turbine engine taken from military helicopter! The aggreagate is said to be capable of delivering 385 horses which makes 0.138 hp / lb or 0.3 hp / kg.
The following message has just been released by the New Stratos:Over 40 prospective buyers from Europe and abroad have notified us of their interest in acquiring the New Stratos. These additional vehicles could be produced using a Ferrari F 360 or F 430 as a basis, in a similar production process to that used with our one-off vehicle.Pininfarina, however, has advised us that they will only carry out construction of a limited run with the express permission of Ferrari. Despite Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo’s excellent assessment of the New Stratos after his test drive at Fiorano, Ferrari does not consent to construction of the planned limited run by either Pininfarina or any other Ferrari-dependent suppliers.Given this situation, creation of additional vehicles seems possible only via companies that are not dependent on Ferrari.
