ssc supercar

Man, I guess as cars go faster, they start to look more like the McLaren F1. I guess that is the ideal shape of a super car? The new Shelby Supercars’ Ultimate Aero will be outstanding! According to SeriousWheels, they have had the title of the “World’s Fastest Production Car” for the past year. It will be able to do 0-60mph in 2.78 seconds, has 1287 horse power at 6075RPM, 6.3 Liter V8 Engine Twin Turbo…

What does the new ’09 Ultimate Aero have to offer?

It will be able to reach world-record speeds of 270 MPH, raising the benchmark for supercars and pushing the limits of current production car technology. In order to accommodate the ’09 Ultimate Aero’s unique fuel system requirements, SSC turned to American company Aeromotive to develop a flawless system. The aggressive nose is redesigned with enhanced aerodynamics to accommodate the 2009 Ultimate Aero’s higher top speed, and carbon fiber louvers on the side intakes draw in an additional 20% of air into the radiators for improved cooling. The ’09 Ultimate Aero also introduces the AeroBrakeTM a rear spoiler system that deploys under braking situations. Finished in carbon fiber, the rear spoilers actuate up an additional 8″ when the brake pedal is depressed. The speed of the spoiler actuation is set by the amount of brake pedal pressure. The complete AeroBrakeTM system can be disabled by the push of a button, for town driving or situations where braking and downforce assistance are not necessary. [SeriousWheels]
