If you haven’t heard already the new 2011 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport has officially set a new landspeed world record for production cars hitting a top speed of 267.81 mph. Well, the folks over at Shelby SuperCars, whose American-built SSC Ultimate Aero held the record prior to the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, are saying that they are working on a faster Aero to take their title back.
“We would sincerely like to congratulate Bugatti,” SCC said in a statement. “When the Ultimate Aero broke the record in 2007, we knew it was just a matter of time until it was broken by someone else.”
SSC went on to say:
[W]e’ve been working on a new project to debut before the end of the summer. Not much can be said at this time except that we’ll be upping the ante on all fronts. Having famed American designer Jason Castriota as our lead design enables SSC to reflect its engineer and performance in its aesthetics. It’s impossible for us to be more thrilled about having him on board and we’re anxious to show the world what we have up our sleeve.
Guess we’ll have to wait and see what SSC has up its sleeve. Stay tuned – and yes, that’s Kim Kardashian standing next to the Ultimate Aero.
