The hottest car in all the land might be the Shelby Supercars Tuatara.
Put some swept-back wings on the thing, and you’ve got a road-ready F-16, only faster and better looking. The Tuatara looks exotic even in the company of exotics. It’s more intergalactic spaceship than car. That’s not just me saying so, either, as the supercar connoisseurs in the deserts of Dubai have voted for the Tuatara to the tune of $13 million. This thing is going to be hot!
SSC’s head honcho, Jerod Shelby, brought the Tuatara to the Dubai Motor Show hoping to secure a distributor for the region and earn some brand recognition. Instead he secured 10 buyers for the $1.3 million super-exotic. Not bad for a little carmaker based in a quiet corner of rural Washington state.
