Ultimate Aero TT Hit 652 Km/h Specification Features Price Speed Review

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

Possibly the world’s fastest production car. Never mind the Bugatti Veyron, because SSC, a small manufacturer based in Washington, US, is now turning out the Ultimate Aero TT, and its twin-turbocharged Corvette V8 motor punches out 1183bhp. That’s more power than any road car, ever. It’s been tested to a gentle 230mph so far, but the prediction is that 273mph should be the car’s maximum.

The engine started life as a Corvette 5.7-litre LS6 small-block V8. In standard 2004 spec that makes around 405bhp and 400lb ft. This version has an extra 676cc and two turbos for its 1183bhp and 1094lb ft.

The SSC’s body is entirely carbonfibre, features a flat undertray with twin venturi tunnels and weighs just under 60kg. Within that there’s a steel box-sectioned spaceframe chassis. Front suspension is conventional double wishbones, while the rear features an upper rocker arm with lower wishbone and an anti-roll bar.
The SSC Ultimate Aero is an American-built mid-engine supercar by Shelby SuperCars. The higher-performance limited production version, the SSC Ultimate Aero TT produces more emissions-legal horsepower than any other production automobile in the world and previously held the Guinness book of world records record for being the fastest production car in the world (succeeded by the 2010 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport),[1] with a recorded speed of 652.28 km/h (256.18 mph).[2] This speed was achieved during tests on September 13, 2007 West Richland, Washington, United States and verified by Guinness World Records on October 9, 2007.[3] This speed however does not reflect the Ultimate Aero TT's full potential. SSC estimates that the newer, more powerful and lighter weight 2009 Ultimate Aero TT is capable of a top speed of over 270 mph (430 km/h).[4] The SSC Ultimate Aero does not have electronic aids such as ABS brakes or traction control because (to quote Jerod Shelby) "Early design philosophy on the car was to make it a drivers car. I wanted a car that you not only throttled with your right foot but at times you could steer with your right foot.".
