    • 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.

    • @Михаил П Shitgatti only had to use special tires because their car weighs as much as a fucking pig. Even CvK himself said that they don't have to worry about the tires while going 330+ in a jesko absolut because the car is much lighter and much more aerodynamic, has much less downforce.

      Pagan MinPagan MinPrije 39 minuta
    • @Михаил П Koenigsegg themselves tested pilot sport cup 2 (same tires Tuatara used in its top speed run) up to 330 mph in an Agera RS (in-house testing) and it held up well about a full minute. So tires aren't the problem here. Stop talking bull$hit up your arse.

      Pagan MinPagan MinPrije sat
    • @Pagan Min the Tires ssc used arent even rated for such speeds anywhere near 331😂🤡. If buggatti took a while and had to get custom special 40k michelin tires for chiron and veyron to hit 300mph. We all know SSC on straight cap with their fske speed records.

    • 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.

  • 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
