World's fastest production car has carbon-fiber wheels

The SSC Ultimate Aero II isn't just the world's fastest production car — it has sleek looks too. If Wall-E's Eva had an older badass brother, this is what he would look like.

Packed with the power of 1,350 horses and capable of hitting top speeds of 275 miles per hour, the Ultimate Aero II will give you motion sickness if you're not used to going faster than 60.

The Ultimate Aero II's raison d'être seems to be to dethrone Bugatti's Veyron Supersport that took away the production car speed record from its maker Shelby SuperCars.

Shelby SuperCars expect to sell these bad puppies next year for $970,000 a piece. You'll get your full money's worth too: the wheels on the Ultimate Aero II will be made from "the world's first one-piece carbon-fiber units" giving the car a weight of only 2,600 pounds — as opposed to the Veyron's 4,000 pounds.
