When Bugatti announced that its new Veyron 16.4 Super Sport officially set a new landspeed world record for production cars hitting a top speed of 267.81 mph, American company Shelby Supercars (SSC) was quick to congratulate the German automaker and said that they are working on a new project that will debut before the end of the summer.
“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 said.
Shortly after that SSC released a teaser for the Ultimate Aero II and today the folks at Top Gear have revealed two images showing the full car. According to sources, SSC is aiming for a top speed of 275 mph from a 6.8L V8 engine making 1,350-hp.
We’re pretty excited to see the SSC Ultimate Aero II in every angle – stay tuned.
