The second generation product of America’s fastest supercar has just begun making the rounds – these are exclusive first photos of the SSC Ultimate Aero II. With a new look and a new job at hand, the car seems to be on a mission to knock the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport off the pedestal of ‘world’s fastest production car’.
The Veyron Super Sport boasts a top speed of 268mph, which would have come as a surprise to the SSC Ultimate Aero, which was until then the fastest, getting speeds of 256 mph with the 1,183-hp 6.2-liter V8 engine. As an immediate follow-up, Shelby SuperCars had been at work on the Ultimate Aero II.
These new photos are reportedly of the new Ultimate Aero II. From the looks of it, they have combined the angular look that designer Jason Castriota used on the Stile Bertone Mantide with the wind tunnel-formed slickness of the Ferrari P4/5.
This makes it a look that is familiar to car enthusiasts and at the same time distinct enough to stand out from both the looks.
