We all knew that this would happen. Recently we reported that the new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport stripped the SSC Ultimate Aero of the title of. “Fastest Production Car” by setting a new record of 267.81 mph. In that article I also mention that SSC would most likely not take this lying down and would probably come out swinging. So now, a mere week after their record was broken they’ve released the following statement.
“We’ve been working on a new project to debut before the end of the summer. Not much can be said at this time except that we’ll be upping the ante on all fronts. Having famed American designer Jason Castriota as our lead design enables SSC to reflect its engineer and performance in its aesthetics. It’s impossible for us to be more thrilled about having him on board and we’re anxious to show the world what we have up our sleeve.”
What we have here is something that is so acutely American when someone tries to challenge what we’ve done. You see when this happens we simply open our shiny red tool box and unload the BFH. I have no doubt that SSC is going to regain their title and I am very excited for them to do so, the only part that sucks now is the fact that we’ll have to wait until the end of summer.
