Brief History About SSC
SSC North America was founded in 1999 in the USA by Jerod Shelby. The company was originally called Shelby SuperCars Inc, but changed its name in 2012 due to a settlement with Carroll Shelby International. Jerod is not related to Carroll Shelby.
SSC has held the record for the fastest production car in the world with its Ultimate Aero Twin Turbo, reaching 256 mph in 2007, beating Bugatti, who later reclaimed the title in 2010 with 268 mph in a Bugati Veyron Super Sport. The SSC Tuatara is estimated to be able to top out at 276mph, but will need to do this under the Guinness World Records guidelines.
