Behold: the Tuatara – all all-American hypercar from Washington-based Shelby SuperCars.

The slippy, low drag profile combined with an utterly over the top 5.9 litre, twin turbo V8 cranking out 1,750bhp, delivers a top speed just shy of 500km/h.

And that’s the point of it, because the Tuatara is now poised to reclaim the title of ‘World’s Fastest Production Car’ for SSC – bragging rights previously held by the SSC Ultimate Aero from 2007-2010.

Only 100 will be built and when the dust settles, yours will cost €1.5 million.

    From the final (rear) pic; it’s not unlike the Corgi Batmobile of my childhood:

    It had plastic red flames that moved in/out of the exhaust as the wheels turned – and a three-barrel rocket launcher behind the rear window.
    So this yoke is deficient on several counts.
