Second generation Ultimate Aero to be unveiled on August 8th

Shelby SuperCars have announced they will unveil the second generation Ultimate Aero at the Boeing Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington on Sunday August 8, 2010 from 5:30 – 10 pm. The evening will begin with a private tour of the museum and will include an intimate dinner event featuring a discussion with SSC owner and founder Jerod Shelby and ex-Pinninfarina designer Jason Castriota (lead designer on historic automobiles such as the Maserati Birdcage , Gran Turismo , and Ferrari 599 ). Th evening will culminate with the first ever showing of the second generation Ultimate Aero full-scale design model.

This falls right into place with the other announcements made by SSC recently. They have already announced that they will unveil a supercar that will compete with the new Veyron 16.4 Super Sport . The current SSC Ultimate Aero is powered by a mid-engined, twin-turbo 6.2-liter V8 engine that delivers a total of 1183 HP and is capable of hitting a top speed of 256 mph. However, in order to run faster than the current 267 mph record, the next Aero will need to be more powerful and lighter.

Tickets for the event are $80 each and selling as we type!

It has mild undertones of the Nissan GTR, Maserati MC12, Audi R8, Lamborghini & Ferrari on the sides. Then again you can say that about any car because they usually have to follow certain guidelines depending on the purpose of the car.

I believe what VW group wanted, and has achieved with the Veyron, is to build a seriously fast car, with a thousand horsepower, but also being luxurious and, as easy and as relaxing to drive as a golf, even at over 400km/h. As a result the Ultimate Aero is on another
planet. Maybe we should compare it to other pure speed hunters like the Hennessey Venom GT or a Koenigsegg (the CCX is not really appropriate actually)

I can’t wait to see the latest innovation they made. Hope they make a early release on reviews about the second innovation so that fans will know on what to expect.

One more upgrade on it’s lightweightness and will surely fly, considering the aerodynamic design of the car.
