Beating the previous Fastest car - Bugatti Veyron, here's the present fastest car on Earth, which says "Life begins at 250...(mph)".

The ultimate Aero has Twin-Turbo V8 Engine with 1183 hp, as compared to Narrow Angle-Aluminum W16 Engine with 1001 hp that of Bugatti Veyron. Surprisingly Aero has been priced at $6,54,400 as against the costly Veyron at $1,444,000.

The speed of SSC Aero has been recorded as 256.19 mph, by Guinness World Records on 13th September, 2007. Whereas that of Bugatti Veyron is 253+ mph. But the 0-60 is done by Veyron in 2.5 secs, which is slightly faster than SSC Aero which is at 2.7 seconds.

SSC Aero 2009
Now, the Shelby SuperCars' Ultimate Aero is receiving several refinements for the 2009 model year. The SSC engineering team equipped the 2009 Ultimate Aero with a 15% increase in horsepower, a revamped front fascia design, and an array of important interior upgrades. The most substantial change is an SSC-designed, 1-piece billet aluminum engine block. A milestone for the limited-production automobile manufacturer, the new block improves structural integrity and oiling capabilities allowing SSC to boost the power output to 1287 horsepower while improving durability.

The new 2009 model is expected to reach 270 mph !

The aggressive nose is redesigned with enhanced aerodynamics to accommodate the 2009 Ultimate Aero's higher top speed, and carbon fiber louvers on the side intakes draw in an additional 20% of air into the radiators for improved cooling. The improvement in overall performance will widen the already sizeable gap between the Ultimate Aero and its competitors. The '09 Ultimate Aero also introduces the AeroBrakeTM a rear spoiler system that deploys under braking situations.
