    Update: SSC responds to 331mph video accusations. We speak to Jerod Shelby, CEO of SSC

    They haven’t released the unedited footage and haven’t redone the attempt so I think it’s safe to assume they lied. Anyone who bought this car should immediately return it for a refund.

    Gearing sound frequency will change dependant upon how hard you move through them. Do a sound analysis of the video below, where the Tuatara hits 242mph on a short airport runway. In the video 0:22 to 0:25 is the Tuatara covers .2 miles, going off of the measurement tool on Google maps. East Oregon Regional Airport runway 25, starting at the runway marking 45.6954712, -118.8368107 to 45.6954691, -118.8407200 this comes out to a speed of 240 mph, So if it covers .2 miles in 3 seconds it equates to 240mph, which lines up with the claim it reached 242mph in just over .5 miles on runway 25 at that airport. The car can definitely hit +300mph when given more room, during a Vmax run. Listen to the gears during the race, starting in 1st he shifts 4 times, ending the race in 5th gear, at +240mph. This falls directly in line with the numbers provided by Mr. Shelby (which I have provided below) Tuatara (Top Speed Model) Tech Specs Ratios/Speed, using the 2.92 final-drive ratio Gear Ratios/Top Speed (Gears 1-6 have 8,800 RPM REV LIMIT) 1st Gear: 3.133 / 80.56 MPH 2nd Gear: 2.100 / 120.18 MPH 3rd Gear: 1.520 / 166.04 MPH 4th Gear: 1.172 / 215.34 MPH 5th Gear: .941 / 268.21 MPH 6th Gear: .757 / 333.4 MPH @8800 * 7th Gear: .625 / 353.33 MPH (Estimated max @7,700RPM in 7th gear - Designed as mainly an overdrive highway cruising gear) The Tuatara did reach over 300mph, the video is just edited at a 6th grade video class level. They (SSC) have other videos on their channel showing how hard this car can pull, watch the street lines and listen to the engine note. They would NOT need to fake a 300mph run, especially with ALL the money and time they put into setting up the event and all the filming collaboration.

    This is the optimum video of a youtube title states. THE REST ARE "CLICK BAIT". You see the cockpit, driver, instrument panel. NO COMMENTARY, NO extra fluff from wannabe scientists and NO ad nauseam clamor. Sorry for the vent, just frustrated. This is what I wanted to see but got sucked into 15+ other videos before I found this gem. THANK YOU TOP GEAR.

    When Bugatti and Koenigsegg broke speed records the drivers, owners and all staff were all around the place celebrating the achievement. These guys ACT like they're celebrating but i can't see the happiness in their faces. Is it just me or does anyone else noted that?

    at 0:26 you can see the speedo on the dash read a 3rd digit which I assume is 100mph and at the same time the telemetry is reading 107mph. So it's reading 7% higher than it should. Even still it should have hit 309mph which is in the realm of possibility.

    FOR SURE it's fake! From 350 to 400 km/h much faster than 300- to 350... And from 450 to 500km/h in the same time like 400-450km/h... COME ON!

    PLEASE READ THIS COMMENT !! SSC TUATARA: - V8 (8 Cylinder) 5.9L -Twin Turbo -532 KM / H (SSC North American Claimed) Bugatti Chiron: -W16 (16 Cylinder) 8.0L -Four Tubocharged -501 KM / H (GmbH Claimed) QnA: Q: Why is the Bugatti Chiron Faster Than SSC Tuatara ?? A: There are two reasons, namely: -Because The SSC Tuatara Frame Is Very Light -Because the body of the SSC Tuatara is very aerodynamic (SSC Ultimate Aero Predecessor), because that is the Bugatti loses top speed, so SSC TUATARA is very FRAUDULENT / UNDERHANDED Sorry I Use Translate Because I Japanese DO NOT TAKE IT WRONG

    Officially every bit of the respected car journalism has been dispersed into the grand void of showbusiness in two years time. A racing driver Tiff Needell who founded second largest british car programme was fired for the same reason Chris Harris was hired in Top Gear. Since direct and primary function of a driver has a secondary value over electromechanical actuators that give direct connection to the preordained target of all measured forces the purpose of automotive intellectuality and its relation with a driver and the vehicle literally is no more and all that is left is false fed propaganda of politicians and media working together in a truly corrupt tandem
