SSC’s Former King of Speed is on Sale for $225,000

Year in year out, the world of automobiles is getting thirstier for speed. It is as if speed has become the fuel for car makers to push to their limits more and more since old time. Like in 1938 when Mercedes broke the world record with its experimental W125 that hit a top speed of 432.7 km/h on a public road.

The record remained in Mercedes’ hands for decades until November 2017 when the Koenigsegg Agera RS got angry and won five world land titles in a short time, including the 457.94 km/h top speed record on a public road that beat the W125.

The modern public speed battle also involved production cars such as the Ferrari F40, Porsche 959, Jaguar XJ220, and Bugatti Veyron. 2007 marked the emergence of a new winner for the fastest road car that is called the SSC Aero. It sprinted to 413.83 km/h and 411.76 km/h in a couple of runs, resulting an average speed of 411.76 km/h, which surpassed the Veyron by 5.01 km/h.

Couldn’t simply accept the defeat, the Veyron came back few years later with the Super Sport badge to reclaim the title with a 431 km/h average-speed achievement. Eventually, it was the Koenigsegg Agera RS that beat the Veyron with an average speed of 446.97 km/h.

Now if you like speed as much as those automakers but a Bugatti is too expensive for you, then maybe this 2010 SSC Ultimate Aero TT listed on doPont REGISTRY can be the right car for you. It was once a record breaker and now it’s being offered for $225,000.

This particular model clocked only 1,400 miles from new. It’s also the only unit available for purchase at the moment. In case you don’t know, the rare blue-white SSC Ultimate Aero TT packs a twin-turbo V8 engine cranking out 1,287 HP and 1,507 Nm of torque, which is clearly monstrous.
