Enthusiasts from all over the world now have a chance to actually own this piece of automotive history as the actual record-breaking car is up for sale on eBay. Being only one of 26 cars in 123 years to hold the record, the Ultimate Aero TT joins a special list of cars that include the 1932 Duesenberg SJ, 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, 1986 Porsche 959, 1990 Lamborghini Diablo, 1994 McLaren F1, and of course the 2005 Bugatti Veyron.
This particular car is a 2007 model and is finished in ‘Palladium’ silver, matched with a black Alcantara interior. Other goodies include satnav, a 10-speaker stereo, reverse camera, and a 1183hp (882kW) twin-turbo V8 powerplant.
Despite being the record holder, this particular car may be surpassed by the 2009 model year Ultimate Aero TT, which has been upgraded with an additional 100hp (75kW) and has a theoretical top speed of 270mph (435km/h). No official times has been set but we're sure SSC will do a new world-record run so they can retain the bragging rights.
