Although Shelby first announced Tuatara – Maori First – about a decade ago, the Washington-based hypercard team finally launched the first production activated by Tuataras this week.
Tuatara was limited to only 100 units in 2020 and continues the industry trend of developing vehicles with higher performance on motorcycles. Tuatara V8 with two turbochargers and 5.9 l displacement produces an absurd 1,750 hp. In addition to a top speed of more than 300 km / h, the US hypercar 2,750 pounds supports a seven-speed CIMA transmission that can move gears in less than 100 milliseconds, a carbon monocoque frame, and a carbon body. It is likely to be very slippery, which results in a class drag coefficient of 0.279.
