Shelby SSC Ultimate Aero

After seven years of painstaking development, SSC is proud to introduce the Ultimate Aero -- A car without equal. It means, America no longer takes a backseat in the world of supercars. Shelby Super Cars (SSC) has created the Ultimate Aero as direct competition to the new Bugatti Veyron. The Ultimate Aero is best known for its stability and endurance at speeds greater than 250 mph. In fact, it is estimated (in wind tunnel tests) that the supercar’s top speed is closer to 273 mph.

This car has not only the superior speed, but also has a luxury design. The Aero is designed with scissor doors, much like the Lamborghini and Ferrari sports cars. It also makes good use of carbon fiber and titanium. This keeps the overall weight of the Aero low to help with overall speed. Fast car Ultimate Aero has further modifications, including making almost all equipment optional, to further reduce weight.

Now, let’s talk about the price. The SSC Ultimate Aero sports car is a premium example of American craftsmanship. Of course, super cars such as this come with a price tag capable of making a serious dent in your bottom line. The base Aero is available from around $240,000, while the Ultimate Aero is projected to reach a price closer to $650,000. For those able to afford the ultimate in speed, no price is too high for such an exclusive and exotic machine.
