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.

The Varying Drivers License Requirements Around the World

Minimum driving ages, the number of passengers young drivers can have with them at any time, the times of day that drivers under the age of 18 can drive…

These all vary depending on where young motorists are driving. They vary, even, across the United States.

For instance, in Maine, motorists under the age of 18 aren’t allowed to have any passengers with them as they drive for the first 180 days after they obtain their licenses. In Alabama, motorists under the age of 18 can have one passenger with them.

And that’s just one example of the differences in driving license requirements from one part of the country to the next. The differences are even more pronounced when comparing one country to another. Minimum driving ages vary widely across the world. While most states in the United States allow youngsters to earn their learner’s permits at the age of 15, many other countries require their residents to be much older before they get behind the wheel of a car.
