        Gearing sound frequency will change dependant upon how hard you move through them. Do a sound analysis of the video below, where the Tuatara hits 242mph on a short airport runway. In the video 0:22 to 0:25 is the Tuatara covers .2 miles, going off of the measurement tool on Google maps. East Oregon Regional Airport runway 25, starting at the runway marking 45.6954712, -118.8368107 to 45.6954691, -118.8407200 this comes out to a speed of 240 mph, So if it covers .2 miles in 3 seconds it equates to 240mph, which lines up with the claim it reached 242mph in just over .5 miles on runway 25 at that airport. The car can definitely hit +300mph when given more room, during a Vmax run. Listen to the gears during the race, starting in 1st he shifts 4 times, ending the race in 5th gear, at +240mph. This falls directly in line with the numbers provided by Mr. Shelby (which I have provided below) Tuatara (Top Speed Model) Tech Specs Ratios/Speed, using the 2.92 final-drive ratio Gear Ratios/Top Speed (Gears 1-6 have 8,800 RPM REV LIMIT) 1st Gear: 3.133 / 80.56 MPH 2nd Gear: 2.100 / 120.18 MPH 3rd Gear: 1.520 / 166.04 MPH 4th Gear: 1.172 / 215.34 MPH 5th Gear: .941 / 268.21 MPH 6th Gear: .757 / 333.4 MPH @8800 * 7th Gear: .625 / 353.33 MPH (Estimated max @7,700RPM in 7th gear - Designed as mainly an overdrive highway cruising gear) The Tuatara did reach over 300mph, the video is just edited at a 6th grade video class level. They (SSC) have other videos on their channel showing how hard this car can pull, watch the street lines and listen to the engine note. They would NOT need to fake a 300mph run, especially with ALL the money and time they put into setting up the event and all the filming collaboration.

        @Complex One Keep telling yourself that, if it makes you sleep better at night lol Americans are so easily fooled xD

      5. Complex One

        and the car still can go faster they just wanted to break the

    2. Jay Money 420

      The RPM’s and the speed don’t seem to match up... 331mph and the engine isn’t screaming ? Seems fishy.

    3. Kyle Easter

      1:16 the dial clearly says 298 or atleast 29x (something) when the "telemetry" says 318... Whoever tried to blur the speedo inside the car did a pretty bad job at it.

    4. Matthew Holcomb

      Wow 150 plus is nuts.

    5. Kareem Salessi

      1:22 Looking at the windshield-view, I think it did exactly 330mph, just one mile off !!!! Guaranteed !!!!

    6. sibtain ali

      Shame on you You guys have lost your credebility.

    7. Fenyr`z Polestar

      Chiron super sport: how cute

    8. ZuMbauY

      Imagine deer 🦌 appears on the road

      1. Kareem Salessi

        Even a passing rodent/snake under one tire could be fatal!!!!

    9. Screaming Pistons

      As fake as devil 16 🤣🤣🤣

    10. David Hill

      Fake news !

    11. Goran Sasic

      High quality video and yet we have blurred speedometer lol

    12. jquest43


    13. jquest43 THIS car did 307 mph for 303 avg. in 1999!!

      ... If Biden drives a Supersportscar...

    16. IbraheemAhmedd ahmed

      knew, it was fake they blurred out the speedometer when it said 331 but it prob went 246

    17. ArSaM SaMyR


    18. Jose Luna

      Driving one handed, while been still at 300km+ ... dammn

    19. Dustin Nance

      I call B.S. just by slowing it down frame by frame and counting timing of the center lines 🤔

    20. Rafael Carrasco

      La que viene a la derecha.... eee

    22. MCES LEX

      Bugatti is like but but but our cars costs up to 18 million dollars 😂😂😂

    23. Feel The Beat

      350km/h on bugatti chiron : a guy in normal clothes with sunglasses just chilling . 200km/h on a Ssc or a Koenigsegg car : full racing and safety gear . That's the difference

      1. Takashi

        You should watch stradman's video pal, cuz driver of the SSC (ceo himself) has casual clothes, sunglasses and airpods and he was casually chilling at 389 km/h.

    24. Danilo Ricardo do Valle Ribeiro

      just like the man on the moon, a hoax!!!! Shame on you!

    25. Nitin Petwal

      Crown 👑 prince Bugatti is now dead😭😭

    26. Christian Mulipola

      This is soo fake. HAHAAH losers not odfficial bugatti on top losers

    27. Rayhan Rizvi

      SSC hit "some speed" rip

    28. Lucas bac a sable

      brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr STUUUUU brrrrrrrrrrrrr STUUUUUU brrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    32. xiami

      wow they changed the thats funny

    33. Zephyy

      Fake btw.

    34. trunks ko

      it's fake cause if not he can do another run pretty soon and official.. now it's been one month no news

      1. Pagan Min

        It takes a lot of time to rent a road,examine and set it up. It took Koenigsegg months to rent the Nevada Highway and almost one year for SSC. Sounds like you don't have a clue how it works.

      2. Михаил П

        Been 4 weeks and no new run or scheduling of new run, highkey probobly they figured out they car cant go anywhere near that speed so they laying low🤣

    35. GuninGames

      Sigh, this is all fake, sorry guys the Chiron still holds the record for fastest production car

    36. Monkey

      Veyron hit 279 Chiron does 291 Koeniggseg did 302 and they all struggled for those final mph with top speed car tunes and aero packs Then comes SSC and beats them over 30mph. I totally believe that

      1. Takashi

        significantly more aerodynamic, significantly lower frontal area which makes the car even more aerodynamic, more horsepower, much stronger torque, lighter car

    37. al ferrari

      Fake fake the cactus is passing by at the same speed every time 🤣

    38. Adrian Tracz

      I cant believe some people think it is not fake.

    39. Chris 6.0 or die

      That helmet won't save you at those speeds i would've took it off

    40. Rodel Riniopa

      Maybe repair your speedometer 😂 That was so fast to count.

    41. K272

      I think its fake, look the video from shmee. The company who deliever the gps data have denied the record. The helicopter with tv crew can only fly 140 mph and ist still at 180 mph at the side of the car.......

    42. Tamo wittig

      240-330 mph im 6ten Gang. Sie glauben diese Geschichte ist wahr?

    43. Tiagolarose

      On dirait un avion la voiture 😅

    44. The Car Industry

      Yeah, rumors spread that SSC faked it

    45. Blanco


    46. scfog90

      You can see on the speedometer that he made 254 mph Max.... I call BS on this video. Please take it down, if you go some dignity left. Clarkson and co. would've laughed and destroyed this video

    47. Santi 360

      esa nave cuantos millones vale

    48. 20alphabet

      _FAKE and GAY_

    49. Lieutenant Aldo Raine

      Look at the video of Shmee150 it’s proven to be fake

    50. Lieutenant Aldo Raine

      Seems pretty fake to me... Frist struggling to get to 300 km/h and than accelerating 400-532 like a rocket All in second highest gear (6 of 7)

    51. Sami Benyoussef

      سترون تقنية السرعة من السجن! 😉👈

    52. Vulp

      Haha US Fake-Ass. It was so obvious it was fake

    53. Roger Kőller

      v(t) = 550* (1 - (1-400/550)*e^(- 0,1*t)) That is the possible equation of motion that the Tuatara had driven at 533 km/h. From 400 km/h towards 500 km/h it went slightly uphill, then downhill up to a 3% gradient. Therefore, the v-t function shown is still a little too slow above 500 km/h. The vehicle should have covered a distance of around 2700 m from 400-530 km/h. If the driver had stayed on the gas on the downhill stretch, the Tuatara would certainly have been able to drive a lot faster. The gear ratio (final ratio 2.92 and 6th gear 0.757) also enables a top speed of 335 mph = 540 km/h with the 345/30 ZR 20 tires. In my opinion, the hypercar had at least 1750 hp in the run shown. The low air density made this insane speed possible From 400-530 km/h the time is ~ 20 s Its nearly the same like in the Top Speed Run Video

    54. pafpaf paflol

      532 kmh fake

    55. Fly_ Phil

      Nice Fake.I mean ive never seen a car going quicker from 400-500 then its going from 200-300

    56. MX. LM


    57. Andrew Valencia

      0:53 when you have speed 2 and hyperspeed/max pov in minecraft:

    58. Angel Nuñez

      The ssc tuatara is fake, the data does not match, the Bugatti chiron that reached 494.5kmh has many more air intakes than the SSC tuatara. If the Tuatara really reaches that speed, repeat the test.


      Why says daniel abt its fake

      1. Woran HatsGelegen

        Because it is

    60. Alain MB

      Would like to the speedometer itself...this looks like some kind of video game gauge where you can reach 500mph so easily.

    61. Erik Voli


    62. pranjay kadian


    63. Christian Olesen

      Is this real? I mean 532 kmh is pretty insane

      1. Woran HatsGelegen

        No its Not Look how slow the landscape passe away and how fast he is making 300-400, faster then 200-300

    64. Daniel Allen

      I just seen this car do 242 mph in just over a half a mile.

    65. MAHI production

      My cars speed

    66. KnallM1ch Böll3r

      Nice fake guys... lets see what comes next

    67. Jan Ruud

      Can we just appreciate how INSANELY badly the filming is? I mean... This must hold the WORLD RECORD for the worst filmed world record attempt in the world.

    68. Londres Berlin

      😍 Monster 🥁 🚀.

    69. M S

      Guys Jarod Shelby is preparing to make an announcement regarding all of the criticisms and accusations... He will make the announcement at a place called Four Seasons Total Landscaping.

      This Video is Fake 100%

      Shmee's breakdown of the video is very interesting, if his data is accurate.

    80. Patrick


    81. FN_ olive_YT

      I’m bout this mans whole career this 1. How do the tires survive 2. On his POV they are covering the speed gauge.

    82. louis seeger

      Fake ! GPS fail

        Fake, but good camera settings!

    88. i qswjx wd

      why people are saying that this is fake?

      1. Woran HatsGelegen

        It is fake Look how fast it goes from 300-400, faster then 200-300 and the landscape Pasing away too slow

      2. Kuya Trafala

    89. Zaki Darlan

      Why you guys still post this video eventhough you know this video is a mistake as the SSC had said?

    90. ByteScout71

      Yeah, and Donald Trump drove it. Tell me the reason why the spedometer has been blurred?

    91. Mohammed Waheed

      Then why it's not famous

    92. pida siouy

      apply a 1.48 correction factor and display the "corrected" speed. This would be easy to verify if they simply released the raw GPS data, which will never happen.

    93. GRRB

      Shameful, top gear's reputation fading fast

    94. tx7750680

      That’s cool. The Knight Ridder car Kitt could only hit 310 mph

      1. pida siouy

        Accelarating faster from 300-400 than 100-200 seems legit

    95. Leroy L. Bates

      0:17 min you would never past a person that slow at 100km/h

    96. David

      You still have this video on your channel. Dumb idiots :)

    97. Thinzar Shein

      You little dummies its a fake speed record only bugatti can hit 300 mph dont u get it ssc is a fake copyct

    98. P K

      Guys this Video is FAKE! This car never did 500kmh!

    99. Rocko Vincetti

      So this is fake ?

    100. Holger

      So real /4....
