Unlike the 1750-horsepower SSC Tuatara, that is priced between $1.6m and $1.9m, its ‘Little Brother’ will have 600-700 HP and priced betw. $300-400k.

“We haven’t been interested in an SUV, but we have had a drawing board over the last few years with what we call the ‘Little Brother Project,”

“[It] would be a car that looks very much like the Tuatara, but it would be in the 600 to 700 horsepower range, and sit in a price point where a much larger percentage of the population can afford [it]. We’re talking a $300,000 to $400,000 car.”





Jerod Shelby made this revelation while speaking with the media following the SSC Tuatara’s record-breaking top speed run.

With a price tag between $300,000 and $400,000, the SSC’s Tuatara’s ‘Little Brother’ could compete with the likes of fastselling cars like the McLaren 720S and Ferrari F8 Tributo.
