SCC Ultimate Aero TT
The name, Shelby, is infamous throughout the automotive world. However, Jerod Shelby chose to call his company, SSC North America, just to avoid the connection with Carroll to whom he isn’t related. However, both guys named Shelby have a big need for speed. And, Jerod’s materialized in the form of the Ultimate Aero, which he introduced in 2006.
SSC designed the Ultimate Aero to be the fastest, most powerful supercar on the market. It comes with engineering that represents the perfect blend between racing technology and streetcar design. The first Ultimate Aero models used a 6.2-liter Corvette racing engine with almost 800 HP, which propelled this beast to 238 mph.
But they introduced a real treat in 2009 when they released the Ultimate Aero TT. It featured a turbocharged Corvette mill pumping out 1,200 HP. Also, it had an improved suspension, chassis and aerodynamics. Soon afterward, the Aero TT broke the production car speed record by achieving 256 mph, making it the fastest car in the world. With a price tag of close to $300.000, they only built 24 Aeros between 2006 and 2009.
