"Other makes," indeed. Its the first of just 24 to come over the next two years, and it's yours for the right price. Starting out at a mere $280,000 in a no-reserve auction, the SSC Ultimate Aero TT boasts pretty serious performance numbers: 0-60 in 2.78 seconds, 9.90 at 144 mph in the quarter mile and 0-100-0 in 11.66 seconds. Pretty hot, by any standards. The twin-turbo V8 churns out 1180 hp and 961 lb-ft of torque, likely putting it well ahead of the speed-queen Bugatti Veyron (no figures on top speed have been released, but the speedometer tops out at 280).
What's more is that this car is not a speed mule like some other supercars. The eBay listing indicates the car will come equipped with luxuries such as navigation, 8-speaker premium sound system with CD and DVD, and even an automatic backup camera.
The car is scheduled to premiere this January, but we'll have to wait until May to see what it can really do at a speed contest held in Wolfsburg, Germany.
