Shelby Supercars Changes Name to SSC North America

tuatara at Shelby Supercars Changes Name to SSC North America

Jerod Shelby drops the use of Shelby name for its super car company to avoid further complications with the big Carroll’s brand.

Before this people thought it’s Carroll Shelby, the father of Cobra and Shelby Mustangs, who’s come up with the Veyron-killing Aero Ultimate and then Tuatara. But it isn’t. The only connection between Jerod and Carroll is that last name, Shelby.

Because of that, poor Jerod cannot put his familyname on his super car like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Koenigsegg and Pagani, among others. The company is now called SSC North America. We just simply call it SSC.

Come to think of it, SSC hasn’t been good with names from the get-go. Their first super car was called a combination of Aero, Ultimate and GT, and the new one, as I’m sure you know, is called the Tuatara. We hope they change that too.

That said, we can’t wait to see the 1,350-hp SSC Tuatara wipe the smile off the Veyron’s smug face, mainly because it’ll make the Germans come up with something even faster.
