At 1,750 horsepower (on E85 fuel), the ludicrous rear-wheel drive SSC Tuatara hypercar is designed to break 300 mph (482 km/h). So it barely gets into 4th gear on the hectic sprint from 60-120 mph (100-200 km/h) in this newly released video.

On our live list of the world’s most powerful production cars, the SSC Tuatara currently sits at #6. If you exclude electrics and hybrids, only the monstrous Hennessey Venom F5 makes more power from a combustion engine. It’s very hard to put this kind of power into any context us regular humans can understand, since for most of us a 500-horsepower sportscar feels outrageously fast.

But perhaps this piece of road testing video can help. If you didn’t look at the speedometer, you’d think it was accelerating from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) at violent speed. But then, you realize this is an American hypercar; the speedo’s in miles per hour and this thing is blasting through double the speed limit in the blink of an eye, feeling like it’s barely getting out of bed.
