About Shelby Super Cars

Shelby Super Cars (SSC) is an American automobile manufacturer of exotic supercars based out of the Tri-Cities in Washington State. The company is owned by Jerod Shelby, unrelated to Carroll Shelby.

They build the SSC Aero, equipped with supercharged General Motors pushrod engined V8s. Its turbocharged 6.35 liter (387.2 cubic inch) V8 produces 1183 bhp, which makes it the most powerful production car in the world, beating the Bugatti Veyron's 1001. On September 13th, 2007, the "Ultimate Aero" also took the title of fastest production car from the Bugatti Veyron.

In order for the achievement to be official under the Guinness World Records’ guidelines, a vehicle testing for the top speed record must race down the course, turn around, and make a second pass in the opposite direction within one hour. The vehicle’s ‘top speed’ is calculated by averaging the top speeds of each pass in order to negate any favorable road or weather conditions. The Ultimate Aero posted a top speed of 257.11mph (413.83km/h) on its first pass and 254.55mph (409.71km/h) on its return pass to set the new top speed record of 256.15 mph (412.233 km/h). The speeds, on a closed stretch of highway in Washington State, were recorded using a series of satellites and several on board sensors, with independent firm Dewetron on hand to monitor progress.

Car Insurance Comparison – Why It is Important

Knowing what to look for when making a car insurance comparison is getting to be more important all of the time. Most, if not all states require motorists to have some level of auto insurance.

But now, states like Mississippi that do not have insurance databases are going to have them, and there must be proof of insurance before the automobile can get its tags renewed. According to the Jackson Free Press, the Mississippi legislature passed a new law in mid-March of 2011 requiring that motorists have more than just an insurance card, but actually have the insurance and be in the database. No insurance means no tags. This will prevent motorists from signing up for insurance and then canceling the policy to save money and still have the card.

With this becoming more common, it is more important now than ever to know how to make a car insurance comparison. Everyone wants to save money on auto insurance, and if that is the name of your game, you will want to get the absolute minimum that your state requires. That does not necessarily mean that you are going to have great insurance, though, because it will most likely just be liability. If your car still has some value to it, this may not be the best for you. If your car is totaled, you will have no way to recover the loss.

If you are already covered under a health insurance plan, it may not be necessary to get additional medical coverage with your auto insurance. If not, this could be crucial. Other additions that you will have to consider include towing, comprehensive coverage, theft, extra liability, car rental and a number of other options your agent will be happy to show you.
