2009-aeroThe new Ultimate Aero supercar broke the Guinness-verified top speed world record. This is an amazing feat – but if you think that it is going to sit back and relax than you’re wrong. It’s journey has just begun.

SSC has revamped this already incredible supercar and if you can believe it – they have made it even more powerful. Now it has more power, speed, and better aerodynamics than before. The 2008 model was able to push out an amazing 1,183 horsepower – but that has been increased to 1,287 thanks to a brand new one-piece billet aluminum engine block. This engine also helps to improve upon the structural integrity and the oiling capabilities.

It has also been given a new front fascia with a new center grille opening that helpt to push all of this horsepower through the air. The carbon fiber louvers also help to push 20% more air through to the radiators. These aerodynamics upgrades together with the higher power give this supercar the ability to reach a top speed of 270 mph!ssc-aero Is that actually possible?

Of course if you are going to enjoy more power you have to do it in luxury. The interior has also been given a makeover with new air vents, gauge cluster, door sills, and carbon fiber trim added to the dash.

The new center console now features an Azentek PC Infotainment system that works to process the supercar’s diagnostic system on board. We now hope that that SSC will work to beat out its old record, and set a new one that will have us… once again…. amazed!
