Fastest Car on the Road?

The SSC Ultimate Aero is an American-built mid-engine supercar by Shelby SuperCars. The higher-performance limited production version previously held the Guinness Book of World Records record for being the fastest production car in the world (succeeded by the 2010 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport),[1] with a recorded speed of 412.29 km/h (256.19 mph).[2] This speed was achieved during tests on September 13, 2007 West Richland, WashingtonUnited States and verified by Guinness World Records on October 9, 2007.[3] This speed however does not reflect the SSC Ultimate Aero TT's full potential. SSC estimates that the newer, more powerful and lighter weight 2009 Ultimate Aero TT is capable of a top speed of over 270 mph (430 km/h).[4] The SSC Ultimate Aero does not have electronic aids such as ABS brakes or traction control, as according to Jerod Shelby; "Early design philosophy on the car was to make it a drivers car. I wanted a car that you not only throttled with your right foot but at times you could steer with your right foot."

Who couldn't love a Bugatti?

On the other hand....hmmmmm
and from the viewpoint of a woman who loves's not always the package that's exciting
