Man this thing is crazy fast. The new company just made it to show what they can do. It is now the fastest production car in the world. Built to go 270+. It has put down 256 and some change already and that was just on the highway. Its kinda funny, This car is PushRod V-8 with twin turbo's. 1183 hp on the first one made. The Bugatti Veyron (2nd fastest now) has a W-16 with quad turbo's and it was drove on a test track to hit 253 or so. The Bugatti cost like 1.2 Million and this SSC Ultimate Aero is priced around 585k! USA=#1 :rock:



Have a Look see of some people playing around in one. [email protected] about 8 sec mark! :lol:

229 mph on a public highway...I wonder how much that speeding ticket would have cost if they got caught? lol

That is one sweet car, but the blow off valve noise was irritating!!!

I'm cringing writing this waiting for the stick you lot are going to give me! :D

First off I love American cars, have done for many years, however comparing American and European cars is very difficult as they are predominantly made for different kind of markets, that being said in MY opinion as nice and fast as this car is I don't believe it would live with a Veyron in the real world, in a straight line maybe but in an all round contest I think the Bugatti would clean up, sorry guys, ok let it rip, let me have it :lol:

If your faster enough in a straight line then you can go slower in the turn and still be ahead:lol: They actually drag raced the Veyron against the SSC and after 100 mph the SSC would pull a car or so each time they shifted. When they let off the SSC was 7-8 cars ahead easy. Just me but I would much rather have a SSC for 600k rather then a Bugatti for 1.6M! Too many points to look at this from. SSC has the record so far is all I know.

:lol: I just think its kinda cool. This is just the start for the company and they make a car to beat the current fastest car and its priced way less. I thought the Bugatti was cool as hell but it should be for 1.6M.

The bugatti was just an excercise to show what could be done, not sure of the exact figure but each and every car is sold at a massive loss, I'm sure it was something like $6,000,000 :eek:

Yeah true, What is funny though they thought it would take a W-16 Motor and 4 turbos to break 250mph. When a pushrod V8 with two turbos can do alot more:lol: The Bugatti is a ton better in the luxury department but not worth the extra money I don't think. There are just too many points that can be made one way or the other. Both are sweet and few will actually see either of them in person.

A true supercar that will always be classed as up there with the best for many years must be the "Maclaren F1" :cool:

Its not Shelby.....

Its shelby super cars. Not related in anyway.

This car beat the veyron in 2007. Like a month after the veyron did its record.

The March 22nd attempt failed to break the record, due to sub-optimal conditions. Test driver Rick Doria reported "wheel-spin" at speeds above 190 mph (310 km/h)

Yes I know what you meant, I was just jumping on up to the race cars to give comparison :lol: Something that would prolly beat all of them to 60mph is the Ligenfelter Corvette. 0-60 in 1.9 secs:D
