The SSC Ultimate TT is one of a select breed of 1000+ horsepower road legal cars, the Bugatti Veyron would be another option. At one point the Ultimate TT held the world record as the fastest production car at 257 mph. That has now been bested by the Veyron Super Sport at 268 mph.

SSC (standing for Shelby Super Car, nothing to do with Carroll Shelby) is an American company, and as such the car uses an American engine, a supercharged 6 litre GM V8 to be precise. This force fed steroidal engine is capable of launching the Ultimate TT to 60 miles an hour in just 2.9 seconds.

Widespread use of lightweight composite materials such as carbon fiber and titanium mechanical components no doubt helps the sprint.
Like the Lamborghini Murcielago the SSC Aero Ultimate has upward swinging scissor doors.
If the 1047 bhp found in the Ultimate TT is too much for you then consider the SSC Aero SC/8T.
