SSC Ultimate Aero TT

This car is designed by Shelby Super Cars. The Ultimate Aero TT currently holds the title of Fastest Production Car. The Ultimate Aero TT is based on the SSC Aero TT. However, luxuries have been removed to cut down weight therefore keeping the weight at 1293kg. The Ultimate Aero uses a Supercharged 6Litre V8 engine capable of producing 1183hp and 1094lb/ft of torque. Wind tunnel testing shows that the car can theoretically reach 439km/h if the correct gears are used. However, the supplied transmission only enables the car to obtain 418km/h. Base models can only reach 380km/h. This car includes supercar gadgets such as scissor doors. This car broke the speed record of the Bugatti Veyron. Surely, the SSC Ultimate Aero TT is fast!!!
