Jalopnik was able to capture a couple leaked images of the upcoming SSC Ultimate Aero II supercar which is slated to take the world’s fastest production car record from the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport which holds it at 267.81 mph. At one time the SSC (Shelby Supercar) Ultimate Aero TT held the world’s fastest production car record at 256mph.

During a private ceremony in Monterey, the Ultimate Aero II was revealed. The official launch of the new Ultimate Aero II is set to be next week along with an appearance in Top Gear magazine.

The new SCC Ultimate Aero II is rumored to have a 6.8-liter twin-turbo V8 producing 1,350hp at 9,000rpm and a top speed of 275mph.

Head over to Jalopnik for the actual leaked images.

The second generation product of America’s fastest supercar has just begun making the rounds – these are exclusive first photos of the SSC Ultimate Aero II. With a new look and a new job at hand, the car seems to be on a mission to knock the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport off the pedestal of ‘world’s fastest production car’.

The Veyron Super Sport boasts a top speed of 268mph, which would have come as a surprise to the SSC Ultimate Aero, which was until then the fastest, getting speeds of 256 mph with the 1,183-hp 6.2-liter V8 engine. As an immediate follow-up, Shelby SuperCars had been at work on the Ultimate Aero II.

These new photos are reportedly of the new Ultimate Aero II. From the looks of it, they have combined the angular look that designer Jason Castriota used on the Stile Bertone Mantide with the wind tunnel-formed slickness of the Ferrari P4/5.

This makes it a look that is familiar to car enthusiasts and at the same time distinct enough to stand out from both the looks.
