SSC Tuatara Interior

The interior of the SSC Tuatara has been evolving. Designers have focused on making the interior mesh with the exterior. Traditional gauges have been replaced with easy-to-read displays. Many of the controls have been eliminated and replaced with a large touch-screen in the middle of the console.

The SSC Tuatara has a handsome, super-sleek, racing exterior that is inundated with perforations of various patterns. Inside the vehicle, these same perforations can be found throughout. This is a great way to tie the exterior and interior together, but that’s not all the designers have done.

Instrument panels are constructed of durable glass and the gauges of American muscle have been replaced with sleek digital displays. The instrument panel sits between the top and center of the steering wheel for ease of viewing by the driver. The passenger no longer needs to lean over to see the speed because the designers have included a panel for the passenger as well.

The center console has an enormous touch-screen that controls all of the creature comforts with just a finger on the screen. Not all of the functions are controlled through the screen. Things such as traction control and drive modes are still controlled through the tactile buttons, which are super-sleek and designed to perfectly match the tail lights.

Although the SSC Tuatara has received some upgrades on the interior, this vehicle remains largely disappointing inside. Many consumers continue to expect more from a luxury vehicle, such as seats that not only wrap around their body, but are comfortable as well. Sometimes comfort is sacrificed for speed, and that appears to be what has been done here.

2013 SSC Tuatara featuring 1-piece carbon fiber wheels by Carbon Revolution

The 2013 Tuatara by SSC will be retrofitted with the same carbon fiber wheels as its predecessor, the Aero. The CR-9 carbon fiber wheels are at least 50 percent lighter than traditional aluminum wheels which means an increase in the total amount of horsepower. The company that produces these wheels, Carbon Revolution, are innovators of this one-piece wheel.

Outfitting the ultra-fast 2013 SSC Tuatara with one-piece carbon fiber wheels only makes sense. The decreased weight of carbon fiber wheels is like increasing the total horsepower, although the Tuatara doesn’t really need more with 1,350 horses stock. Other benefits of these wheels are a better feeling suspension and increased braking power. Braking is important in this car that is said to reach a maximum speed that’s 7 miles per hour faster than the fastest production car available today. Carbon fiber wheels give the driver enhanced steering ability and the reduction in unsprung mass will increase shock tuning which ultimately gives the car better grip to the road, especially in the corners.

The one-piece carbon fiber technology of these wheels means improved durability in comparison to traditional wheels. Carbon Revolution has strict standards for all of their wheels and uses Finite Element Analysis to ensure each wheel meets or exceeds these standards in the areas of weight, stiffness, vibration and durability.

The Need For Speed: Tuatara vs Veyron

The Bugatti Veyron is a grand touring automobile that can be classified as mid engine. It is justified to claim that this model is the fastest road legal kind of car in the globe. It has an amazing speed of 431.07 Km/h with the initial version having a speed of 408.00km/h. The car has an average daily top speed of 350km/h. Once the car gets to 220 km/hr, the hydraulic levels reduce until the ground clearance gets to 9cm which is an equivalent of 3.5 inches. The Bugatti Veyron has a total of ten radiators with a sixteen cylinder double V8 engine and a dual clutch system. It is fitted with a full time four wheel drive system that makes this car quite powerful. Designed and produced by the Volkswagen group with the production being done by the Bugatti Automobile SAS Company whose headquarters is in France.

The Worlds Fastest production carSSC Tuatara are super kind of cars that are used for racing. The Tuatara was designed by Jason Castriota whose designs have become increasingly popular in the supercar sports industry. Details of these particular models have not been totally made available though there are some specific features that can be analyzed. The body of the car is made from carbon fiber and it is fitted with a seven liter DOHC V8 engine, that produces 1350hp twin turbo with a seven speed manual. Its clutch system has got a triple disc and the chassis are made from carbon. The wheels are made out of high quality carbon fiber.

It would be justified to draw a conclusion that though SSC Tuatara claims to be the fastest car, Bugatti Veyron has got more advanced features that prove this assumption wrong, only time will tell who really has the worlds fastest production car.
