When Bugatti unveiled the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, Shelby Supercars announced it will not enjoy the title of the fastest car in the world for a very long time as the American company has plans to bring a new generation Ultimate Aero. Compared to the current Aero, the future model will come with a more aggressive design and a sportier look.
There are no official details yet on the car’s specifications, but as it is expected to brake the current 267 mph record, it will be lighter and more powerful than the car it replaces. 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. So, we expect the new supercar to deliver somewhere between 1,300 and 1,400 HP.
Stay tuned! Official details will be revealed on September 8th!
