The SSC Ultimate Aero is a 1,287hp monster powered by a 6.3-liter twin-turbo V8. Shelby Supercars
has yet to give the media a test drive in the Ultimate Aero, although all 16 models made have now been sold. For the uninitiated, the SSC Ultimate Aero is the car that, despite its modest background, set the record for the fastest car on earth when the Ultimate Aero TT hit a top speed of 255.83 mph. That's what prompted Bugatti
to make the Veyron Super Sport, reclaiming the record at 268 mph. Next up for SSC is the Tuatara, which is tipped to regain the mantel of world's fastest car from Bugatti.
