The Veyron-Killing SSC Tuatara Just Dynoed at 1,350 Horsepower

The Veyron-Killing SSC Tuatara Just Dynoed at 1,350 Horsepower

You can spend years working on an engine, but there's no telling how much power it actually makes until you take to to a dynometer. When SSC took the as of yet unreleased Tuatara to the dyno for some power and stress testing. Luckily for the world's well heeled speed-freaks, SSC has said that the Tuatara "[surpassed] all design specifications."

This means 1,350 horsepower on premium fuel, up to 1,700 hp on race fuel, an a top speed of at least 275 mph, enough to dethrone the 267 mph Bugatti Veyron Supersport. Get ready for a new kind of speed.

Now we just want to know what kind of tires can stand up to that abuse.
