    SSC Aims for World Production Speed Record

    This should be interesting, can they beat the Veyron

    Quote:
    SSC, manufacturer of exclusive super cars, announced today that testing to set the world production speed record will commence on March 21st, 2007. In conjunction with MKM Racing, SSC has closed down a 12-mile stretch of Highway 93 in Elko County, Nevada to attempt to break the 253 mph record currently held by the Bugatti Veyron. MKM Racing has been hired to oversee safety and provide laser traps to verify speeds to an accuracy of .01 mph.


    Wind tunnel testing at NASA's Langley, Virginia facility revealed a coefficient of drag of just .357 and showed the 2,750 lb Ultimate Aero TT capable of speeds up to 273 mph.
