Shelby Supercars North America, commonly referred to as SSC, is continuously trying to revolutionize the supercar industry by testing the limits of speed and performance. It has always been competing with brands like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bugatti or Koenigsegg . And the competition turned out to be advantageous for these top companies which have as a definite goal to be better than the rest. The title of the fastest production car in the world was given by the Guinness Book to the SSC Ultimate Aero.
The competition for this title was greatly disputed between SSC Ultimate Aero and the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. Initially, Bugatti won the battle, but after it was discovered that the top speed limiter, which was set on the production model, was deactivated the Ultimate Aero became the king of super cars.
The SSC Ultimate Aero is powered by a SSC Designed Billet Aluminum V8 Block engine capable of generating 1183 hp and 1094 lb. ft. of torque. It has a lightweight and aerodynamic body made of carbon fiber, composite and steel. It rides on a set of forged 3 piece alloys, measuring 19 x 9-1/2 inch in the front and 20 x 13 inch at the back. They are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires.
The SSC Ultimate Aero and the Bugatti Veyron were both tested in Washington. The first one got to a 256.14 mph (412.22 km/h), while the latter had an average speed of 267.8 mph (430.98 km/h) on the same highway. But, as the production series had to be taken into consideration, the SSC Ultimate Aero had chance as the best partner.
