You may remember that last week we reported on Bugatti’s Veyron Super Sport hitting 267.8 mph to set a new world record. Well while we all sit there thinking that this cannot possibly be broken, Shelby SuperCars have had other ideas.
For quite a while now Shelby and Bugatti have been playing a cat and mouse game with outright top speeds. First blood went to the Veyron setting a speed of 253.8 mph back in 2005, then 2 years later SSC released the wrath of their Ultimate Aero TT to take the title. But as reported Bugatti now has the ball back in their court with the Veyron SS.
