SSC Ultimate Aero TT

257 Miles per Hour

For those of you who are unaware, the SSC stands for Shelby Super Cars, and it's easy to see this car is quite the beaut. In my opinion it's a mix between the Lambo Spyder and the Saleen S7, both of which are gorgeous. An interesting fact about the creation of this car is that when they decided to build it, their goal was to break the world speed record for production cars, and at the time it was tested in 2007, they did break it! The power plant in this car is a massive Chevrolet v8 with twin turbos, and its capable of making 1180 horsepower and a 0-60 time of 2.78. But the most astonishing feature of this car is that it can get 15 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway! Most super-cars like this get around 6 to 8 mpg, making it hands down the most practical super-car on earth.
