American supercar manufacturer Shelby Super Cars (SSC) is aiming to snatch the production world speed record from the 253mph Bugatti Veyron next week.
Seven years in the making, the company’s Ultimate Aero TT certainly sounds like it has the goods. The mid-engined, rear-wheel drive supercar is powered by a 6.3-litre twin-turbocharged and intercooled bespoke V8 boasting 1183bhp and 1094lb/ft of torque.

That’s good for a 0-60mph time of 2.78 seconds and in theory a top speed of 273mph, besting the Bugatti Veyron by a cool 20mph. Worryingly, the speedometer only reads as high as 260mph but at those speeds no-one is likely to have time to check. Stopping is obviously a major concern when your car is capable of clocking up such figures and the Ultimate Aero wears huge 14-inch brake discs grabbed by eight piston callipers up front and six-pistons at the rear. The car will accelerate up to the ton from a standing start and back to rest in just 11.6 seconds.

I’d still prefer a Veyron, even if this Selby does prove faster.
