Shelby SuperCars and American supercar designer Jason Castriota are raising the bar in the supercar industry with the unveiling of SSC’s yet-to-be-named “Next Generation” supercar. The guys at Shelby Supercars is set to challenge the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport’s official landspeed world record for production cars, which holds at 267.81 mph.
The Shelby Supercars Ultimate Aero II car is powered by a 6.8L V8 engine producing 1,350-hp, and with a light body that weighs a third less than a Bugatti Veyron. That is certain to enable the SSC Ultimate Aero II to sprint from 0-60 mph in merely 2.8 seconds with a top speed of 275 mph. But that is still not faster than the Hennessey Venom GT with sprint time from 0-60 in just 2.2 seconds with a lesser top speed of 262 mph.
But the Shelby Supercars Ultimate Aero II is not just built for sprint time alone, it is built to beat the record landspeed for a production car, which is currently held by a Bugatti Veyron. At 1,350 horsepower in the SCC Ultimate Aero II, the shear acceleration in a light car is sinisterly violent and malicious in which you will feel the crushing on your body of shear G-force and everything else is blurry when the blood rushes swiftly away from your brain. So, do you still to want to drive this production car?
The SCC Ultimate Aero II will clock in at about 275 mph top speed, but Shelby has not made it official yet. As for now, the details of this project are top secret, but what we can tell you is that the Shelby Supercars Ultimate Aero II will be enhanced on all aspects to beat out Bugatti Veyron at any cost.
