New Images, Details On Shelby Supercars' 275 MPH Record-Seeker

Follow Nelson

When Jason Castriota came on board with Shelby Supercars, we could hardly believe it--but knew something special would result. Something special most certaily has, as these photos reveal. As for the details, they're pretty special, too.

There's no way to talk about this car except in ballistic terms. The target? 275 mph. The ammunition? A 6.8-liter, twin-turbo, 9,000 rpm V-8 monster rated at 1,350 horsepower. The gun? A futuristic carbon fiber and aluminum cocoon penned by Jason Castriota. The person that pulls the trigger? Legally insane.

The next Aero TT, as it will likely be called, also gets carbon fiber wheels, a triple-disc carbon clutch, and, as with all modern supercars, optional paddle shifters.

Those big, jet-like spoilers at the rear? They're real, and functional. Castriota calls them "dihedral rear stabilizers" that creat dynamic tension, controlling the immense volumes of air that flow over the car at speed to improve stability.

  1. insane!

  2. Looks like a spaceship, what an awesome sight.. and is such a huge step when compared to previous cheap and kit-car looking SSC Ultimate Aero.
    Would love to see this and Lambo Sesto Elemento ( resembling F-117 stealth aircraft ) do a shoot-out.

  3. Finally after 100 years of automotive industry... an american car that looks beautiful. But, then again, isn't the designer an Italian?

  4. Haha looks good apart from what looks like huge balls hanging down with the exhaust pipe coming though.....cant be serious.
