SSC North America is set to make a smaller, cheaper version of the Tuatara hypercar.

In an interview with Top Gear magazine, SSC founder Jerod Shelby said a second model is planned and it will slot underneath the yet-to-be-tested 480km/h road missile with a more attainable starting price. He also mentioned that it will be the Tuatara’s “little brother” - similar in design and performance.

He also stated that the new entry-level model will be “scaled down and priced in a range where a much larger portion of the population can purchase and enjoy it.” Shelby remained coy on details, although a much lower asking price likely implies a higher number of production cars compared with the Tuatara, which is limited to 100 units.
