It appears that Shelby SuperCars has done it again, producing the SSC Ultimate Aero II supercar. And by ‘it’ I mean unleash one hell of a fast supercar upon the market, one perhaps even capable of beating out the luscious Bugatti Veyron for the coveted title of ‘Fastest production car available’.
The Bugatti Veyron can get up to 267 miles per hour, and the SSC Ultimate Aero II is capable of rocketing up to around 274 miles per hour. Basically, the SSC Aero II not only looks like a jet fighter, it is damn fast like one, too! Check out our fleet of private jet charters, you will see the resemblance.
Before we go forward, let’s go backward, to the predecessor of the Ultimate Aero II, the Ultimate Aero. The original never really had a shot at outdoing the Bugatti, but the new one seems to have filled in all the holes. Not that the original was an embarrassment by any means, it reached speeds of about 257 miles per hour, and had the sleek appearance of a DeLorean from ‘Back to the Future’ with sweet gullwing doors. The new SSC Ultimate Aero is simply more powerful and robust, and obviously had the design team working overtime. It is literally astonishing.
Specifications include the same twin-turbo V8 engine, but kicking out 1350 horsepower instead of 1183. That is around 150 more horses than the Bugatti Veyron SS. So theoretically, the SSC Ultimate Aero will reach speeds of around 274 miles per hour, though we still must wait for the official record. I assume the brains behind Bugatti are already looking to the future, as the war wages on for the best and fastest supercar in the world. As far as a price tag, I am going to guess the SSC Aero II will hit the market at around a million USD, which will make it a bargain compared to the Veyron SS. I think after stealing a market percentage and gaining a reputation, Shelby SuperCars will gain the confidence to raise prices like Bugatti.
