Honestly, the SSC looks like ass. You can't outrun ugly even at 250+ miles per hour.

I was just pointing out that in an SSC vs. Veyron thread, looks aren't going to make the difference for most people.

there are no official statements on that, so we only know about the first.

75 (or 85) are supposed to be sold of it.

Damn, you're funny... Where did you get it can handle? For what I've red, it's quite the opposite. Like the Koenigseggseggsegg, the Ultimate Aero is quite uncapable of negotiating corners... With fixed aerodynamics, the balance for optimum top speed (little downforce, minimum drag) has to be contrary to optimum handling (high downforce, more pressure against the ground to improve grip), so it's not suprising it goes straight off the road just with the sight os a bend!
