If you’re a American sports legend, chances are you have a garage full of the best money can buy. Bentleys, Bugattis, Ferraris, maybe even a GMC Hummer EV or a Cadillac Escalade-V. As one does. But how do these athletic giants stand out among their social peers? They have to get something different. For example, NBA legend Michael Jordan recently took delivery of a Hennessey Venom F5 Roadster, one of only 30 made. The trend continues as American television personality, journalist, and NFL great Michael Strahan prepared to take delivery of an SSC Tuatara Striker. A hypercar made in Washington state.
SSC North America recently posted a video on its Instagram tagging Michael Strahan, which showcases a gray Tuatara Striker with beautiful red accents making its way to get loaded onto a truck to be delivered to the former football player. The car coasts its way to the ramp, but during that short amount of time, we can hear just how loud and epic the engine is as it propels the car forward at a walking pace. It’s truly a gorgeous hypercar, which Strahan will surely be proud of while sitting behind the wheel of it.
SSC Tuatara Striker: Details
The SSC Tuatara is one of the most extreme vehicles ever to grace the road. With 1,750 horsepower on offer from its 5.9L twin-turbocharged V8 engine, it is also one of the fastest machines ever built. The SSC Tuatara Striker features a rear wing set-up with a vertical stabilizer, a larger diffuser, frontal dive planes, and some directional rockers on the sides. In addition, SSC says the updated aero package provides the vehicle over three times the downforce of the sleek Castriota-designed bodywork we’re familiar with, bringing 1,100 pounds of downforce at 160 mph. The package provides 45.4 percent more downforce at the front axle and 54.6 percent at the back.
Despite the SSC Tuatara Striker having 1,750 horsepower, it is a street-legal hypercar. Additionally, the SSC Tuatara Striker is highly customizable, with over 14 pages of unique options for customers to choose from. The production of the hypercar is set at 100 units, and though we don’t know what the pricing for this work of art is, it’s safe to say customers at this level really don’t need to ask about these things.
