    Ssc ultimate aero ii revealed 275mph

    Still yank, corners? all plastic?



    SSC ULTIMATE AERO II REVEALED

    ...And this one's going to do 275mph



    This is the Shelby Super Cars Ultimate Aero II (though how you can have a second iteration of something that's ultimate we're not sure), and it's the car that the American company hopes will help it steal back the title of 'world's fastest car' from the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.
    The original SSC Ultimate Aero was never the prettiest of things, but it did at least have pace on its side - 256.18mph of it, to be precise. Now, though, Bugatti has raised the bar, and this is SSC's response - which it hopes should take road car top speeds up to 275mph.
    To do so, the Ultimate Aero II uses a 6.8-litre, 9000rpm twin-turbo V8 giving out 1350bhp. But it isn't just power - there's good old-fashioned weight saving in there too. The wheels, for example, are the world's first one-piece carbon fibre items and weigh less than 6kg each. Overall, SSC's latest creation will almost double the power to weight ratio of the Veyron.x
    Oh, and the new body - designed by the ever-creative Jason Castriota (now of Saab fame) - now give the Ultimate Aero a sharper set of clothes. Which, when you're shelling out almost a million dollars, is the least you'd expect - even if your new supercar can top 275mph.
