Traditionally it has been known that the Bugatti Veyron was the fasted production car in the world, but it will have to find a new unofficial claim to fame. Maybe it can be the fastest selling 2nd fastest car in the world? As for being the fastest car in the world the Guinness Book of World Records has officially awarded that title to the SSC Ultimate Aero TT. After its record run across a Washington state highway that yielded an official average speed, as determined by the Guinness Officials, as being 256.19 mph.

In order to be the world’s fastest production model car you have to meet all the safety and emissions standards that production models face, as well as run on fuel from the average pump. The Ultimate Aero TT does all that and more. It carries luxury items as well, such as a 10-speaker sound system, leather/suede upholstery, navigation system and an operable back-up camera. Also included is a front-end lift system that raises the nose of the car 4-inches to aid it in clearing rough roads. Add to all of that the fact that the Ultimate Aero TT achieved its record run with a twin-turbo V8 with 1183-hp and 1094 ft-lbs of torque while meeting emissions standards.. which is another record that SSC is applying for with Guinness.

While the SSC Ultimate Aero TT now owns the bragging rights as the fastest production car in the world they still feel they have room to raise the bar a bit further. The body itself has been tested in the wind tunnel to withstand speeds of 273-mph. Since the record setting run was performed on a public road with an uneven surface it stands to reason that the Ultimate Aero TT could certainly stretch out its lead a bit further.

If you are in the market for the worlds fastest production car then you may want to contact Motor Cars of Las Vegas as they are the only dealership licensed to sell the SSC Ultimate Aero TT. And if you are not in the market you might want to get a hold of the latest Project Gotham Racing 4 as the Ultimate Aero TT is available to you at a far cheaper price. Plus you have a decreased chance of making internet headlines when you crash your Ultimate Aero there than you will in real life.

Good luck, and if you get one be sure to drive down to Phoenix here and give me a ride. (If you drive top speed from Las Vegas it should only take you an hour and fifteen minutes to get here. ;))
