…The SSC Ultimate Aero Twin Turbo is fast?

SSC Ultimate Aero Twin Turbo

After a few failed attempts, the SSC (Shelby Super Cars) Ultimate Aero Twin Turbo finally managed to break the production car world speed record; taking the title away from the Koenigsegg CCR (and away from the Bugatti Veyron’s unofficial top speed) with an average speed of 255.83 mph.

Having 1183 horses on tap (and 1094 ft-lbs of torque) definitely helped to reach those monumental numbers, and the test driver said “there is tons left on the table”.

Does this mean a second attempt is in order to solidify the record?

We’ll have to wait and see.
