SSC Ultimate Aero

I know that people like us, passionate about fine sports cars such as the 930, can share the enthusiam that this American built car is bringing to the market. I think it's still listed as the fastest car on earth, and completed just a couple years ago by a company based in south-central Washington State (about a hundred miles from where I live).

The video isn't the best, but still that car is quite a sight. Twin turbo V8 and over 1100 hp turning 257 mph is one mean road legal car. The road they tested on is alongside the Hanford Nuclear Reservation. I always drive fast through there to minimize my exposure to background radiation (that's my built-in excuse in case I'm stopped).
