Bugatti Hypercar Takes on The SSC Tuatara

Hypercars are like something from out of this world. They are the epitome of design and engineering, and so much more. Hypercars are some of the rarest, fastest, and most expensive vehicles in the world. Every day, manufacturers and private shops are working to build better and faster hypercars and watching them race is unlike anything you’ll ever experience. Faster than your average car, even then your standard race car, these hypercars might leave you in a state of shock, especially the Bugatti Veyron.

The Bugatti Veyron

Whether you are a fan of hypercars or not, you know about the Bugatti Veyron. It’s spaceship-like appearance, it’s crazy performance, and even more shocking: the price. The Veyron is so expensive that the maintenance cost each year is more than some people’s entire cars. But, it wasn’t designed to be affordable, it was designed to be something extraordinary. There are no hard lines on what makes a hypercar, but if we know one thing, it’s that you either are, or you aren’t, the Bugatti Veyron is.

The SSC Tuatara

The SSC Tuatara isn’t just a piece of machinery, it is modern-day art. Skillfully crafted and designed to be as aerodynamic as possible, the SSC Tuatara is the latest competitor in the hypercar market. A twin-turbocharged 5.9-liter V8 propels this exotic-looking vehicle with 1,350hp. Yes, you read that right, this car makes well over 1000hp, and that’s just using standard premium gas. Switch over to E85 and you can expect a jaw-dropping 1,750hp from this hypercar.
