TopGear is working with SSC to make the unveiling of the Ultimate Aero II one of next year’s biggest events. To build up some hype, more images and details of the supercar have been released. The SSC Ultimate Aero II will utilize a 6.8-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine producing a massive 1,350 hp and moving a methodically designed 2,600-pound carbon fiber body to hopefully beat the Veyron at its own top-speed game. Shelby SuperCars even went as far as designing the world’s first one-piece carbon fiber wheels—weighing in at a mere 13 pounds—as part of its weight-saving measures. As you would rightfully think, performance is stellar. It is a bit slower than the Veyron in the low end (due to the Veyron’s all-wheel drive?) but will make up for it with a much higher top speed. SSC estimates that it will go zero-to-60 mph in 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of (fingers crossed) 275 mph. The car will come in at one-million dollars and will start making big news early next year. You can find more pictures of the SSC Ultimate Aero II here.
