To avoid controversy this time around, all the relevant data was captured by Racelogic.
SSC has not officially done what they wanted to do with the Tuatara yet but it seems they are going all out with two more versions of the car in the near future.
Last month, the trailer carrying the car crashed in Utah as it was being transported to Florida.
As to when this will take place nothing is confirmed yet but it seems Shelby is very serious about it.
This time around, instead of a professional racing driver the SSC Tuatara was piloted by its owner, Dr Larry Caplin.
If conditions are more favorable and the equipment is deemed accurate, we could even see it going even faster.
Rumours were swirling last week about a new top speed record for a production car and we can now confirm it has been absolutely smashed.
It seems there is a new king of top speed on the horizon as an unofficial report from KPVM-TV in Las Vegas says the mighty SSC Tuatara has set a new record over the weekend.
YouTuber TheStradman recently took delivery of a Bugatti Veyron and then managed to convince owner of SSC, Jerod Shelby to put the radical Tuatara up against his hypercar.
Shelby Supercars (SSC) has been teasing us with footage of their Tuatara hypercar and considering it packs 1,750 hp (1,305 kW), we know it is stupidly fast.
