Two-way average speed: 282.9 mph

SSC North America, a fancy car company in Washington state, made a new sports car called the SSC Tuatara.

On January 27, 2021, the Tuatara became the fastest production car in the world by going 282.9 mph (or 455.3 km/h) at a place called Space Florida Launch and Landing Facility. It went faster than the Koenigsegg Agera RS, which used to be the fastest. Another company called Racelogic checked and said, “Yep, it’s true!”

This wasn’t the first time the Tuatara tried to beat the Agera RS. The first time, it supposedly went 316 mph, but some people didn’t believe it.

Then, in May 2022, a guy named Larry Caplin drove his Tuatara really fast in one direction, hitting 295 mph over a short distance at the same place in Florida. But this was just a one-way test, not a back-and-forth one.
