World’s Fastest Production Car: Now in Electric?

World’s Fastest Production Car: Now in Electric?

I guess it’s not enough to build the fastest production car in the world. Shelby SuperCars makes the 1,183-horsepower Ultimate Aero, the car that currently holds the title of World’s Fastest Production Car. How fast does it go? Well the speedometer on the 2008 model goes up to “only” 260, while the 2009 model should be capable of burying the needle at 270 mph....
