Sleek and low like a Lamborghini, the Shelby SuperCars Tuatara is actually inspired by the lizard of the same name. Although it may not look incredibly unique or even very different from some of the luxury car models on the road right now, it is definitely a next step in the evolution of car design. That is why the Shelby SuperCars Tuatara was named after the Tuatara lizard, which happens to have the fastest evolving DNA in the animal kingdom.

Conceived by American supercar designer Jason Castriota, the Shelby SuperCars Tuatara features carbon fiber materials and sharp aerodynamics to ensure a light and fast ride. The wraparound tinted windshield gives the driver an uninterrupted visual of his surroundings, ensuring that he is safe while zooming through the streets.
