The Coolest Car Ever



Shelby SuperCars' Ultimate Aero has received a number of refinements for the 2009 model year, after holding the "World’s Fastest Production Car" title for the year of 2008. The SSC engineering team equipped the 2009 Ultimate Aero with a 15% boost in horsepower, a revamped front fascia design, and a range of significant interior upgrades. A SSC-designed, 1-piece billet aluminum engine block is the most significant change for this model. SSC is able to boost the power output to 1287 horsepower while improving durability, thanks to the new block improves structural integrity and oiling capabilities.

Thanks to the more powerful new engine, the '09 Ultimate Aero will be able to reach world-record speeds of 270 MPH. SSC asked the American company Aeromotive to create a faultless system, in order to accommodate the '09 Ultimate Aero's unique fuel system requirements. Carbon fiber louvers on the side intakes draw in an additional 20% of air into the radiators for improved cooling. The '09 Ultimate Aero also features the AeroBrakeTM, a rear spoiler system that deploys under braking circumstances. The rear spoilers are finished in carbon fiber, and actuate up an additional 8" when the brake pedal is depressed. The speed of the spoiler actuation is set by the amount of brake pedal pressure. If you want to disable the entire AeroBrakeTM, you only have to push of a button, in cases such as town driving or situations where braking and downforce assistance are not necessary.
