SSC, manufacturer of exclusive exotic super cars announced the release of the 2007 Ultimate Aero TT (Twin Turbo). Specifically designed to challenge and break the world spead record for a production car - currently 253 mph set by Bugatti Veyron - the Ultimate Aero TT underwent extensive full-scalle wind tunnel testing and has proven to not only be stable at speeds over 250 mph , but capable up to 273 mph. Using SSC's proprietary twin-turbo design, the Ultimate Aero TT's power plant has surpassed its original design specifications in all areas producing 1180hp@6875 rpm and 961 lbs-ft of torque at 6150 rpm with a motor that has a wonderful idle, incredible daily drivability characteristics, runs on 91-octane pump gas, and easily handles the rigors of long term red-line rpm usage.

Further establishing its replace among the elite super cars of the world, the Ultimate Aero TT produces more emission-legal horse power than any other production automobile in the world, thanks in large part to the tireless efforts of the dedicated Ultimate Aero design team. The Ultimate Aero TT will make its debut on the International Show Circuit starting in November 2006, culminating with the world record top-speed competition held in Wolfsburg Germany in May 2007.
