1st Gear: This Is The Tuatara-ra-ra-ra-ra
Shelby SuperCars publicly dropped the cloth on the unfortunately-named SSC Tuatara for the press for the first time yesterday in Shanghai. In attendance was Jason Castriota, the designer behind not only this new SSC, but also the Stile Bertone Mantide, the P4/5 Pininfarina, Maserati Birdcage, the Saab PhoeniX, and defender of design decency, attended the event and answered media questions alongside Jerod Shelby, SSC Asia President Don Xu, and SSC Asia Co‐Founder Jason He as they unveiled the Tuatara at what looks like a mall. Seriously, is that a Tiffany's behind the stage?
