SSC prides itself on delivering very exclusive exotic super cars with unmatched horsepower & performance, while also adding luxury refinements. The Ultimate Aero TT is being introduced with a newly developed revolutionary twin-turbo power plant producing 1180 bhp. ACTUAL wind tunnel testing has proven the Ultimate Aero not only stable at speeds of 250 mph plus, but capable of speeds up to 273 mph. SSC is not selling cars based on drawings & virtual engineering, but has completed development, testing, verification and is now in production. During testing by Road & Track magazine the Ultimate Aero broke the all time Road & Track slalom course record, which had previously been held by the Enzo Ferrari, confirming the successful engineering and design. Our next step . . . the top-speed record for a production car. See Road & Track's quotes about the Ultimate Aero on the SSC website.
