    Okay, we all know how back in 2004, the Bugatti Veyron was the undisputed king of speed, with a top speed of 253mph, courtesy of a 1001 horsepower quad turbocharged W-16, right?

    Shelby SuperCars didn't like this, so they came out with the SSC Ultimate Aero, which produced 1287 hp, propelling the car to 257mph.

    Bugatti countered the SSC threat with the Veyron Supersport, which used 1,200 horsepower to propel the car to 268 mph.

    Shelby SuperCars is determined to beat Bugatti with the latest reincarnation of the Ultimate Aero. Introducing the 2012 SSC Ultimate Aero II (2):

    It's goal?

    mmmmmmmm,I wonder how much gas the new worlds fastest car will use.

    with gas at the current price,the faster you go & the bigger the engine. the more gas you use.

    no thanks,i'll take the worlds slowest car,as long as it gives me great gas milage.

    Why the hell would one need a car that travels at the speed of a propeller-driven aeroplane?

    you know, this kind of makes me wonder who's going to be the first to build a 300-mph car?

    At those speeds an accident would be fatal so why would anyone want a car that can go that fast but oh well. Maybe 1 day they will get the cars to fly like back the future part 2 did.

    Never say never to Bugatti and Shelby. They will come out with a 300mph car. It might take 10 or 20 years, but it will happen.
    VaderPrime1-When the original Veyron hits top speed, the fuel tank only lasts 6 mins. When they came out with the SuperSport, they had to limit the top speed to protect the tires.

    Might as well get a proper plane, then. You're less likely to bump into things that way.

    iirc the veyron can only go for 13 minutes at full throttle before hitting empty.
    then again having a W16 with four turbos will kinda do that.

    lol, why are you guys missing the point. These car makers are chasing History/industry glory and all you guys are talking about gas:lol 


    That car isn't a daily driver, nobody is like "Shit, I need to get some groceries, jump into my 200,000 dollar sports car":lol .

    The car is a weekend driver or as Borat would say

    "Pussy magnet"

    EDIT: See its not a good daily driver

    I'd like to know where you shop. The Veyron Supersport normally costs around 2.5 million dollars...

    Look's better than the Enzo. The Enzo is the ugliest Ferrari in my opinion.
    What makes the Bugatti so special, is not just it's high-speed. A lot of cars can achieve high-speeds, though maybe not past the 200MPH mark. What makes it special is it does it so solidly and stable. Unlike other super-cars that approach the 200 mark, it does not shake and rattle.
