Top speed records are about as hot as Top Gears Powerlap times and Nurburgring track records and now that Bugatti Veyron Super Sport has officially taken the reigns as the worlds fastest production car, SCC and the previous record holder prior to the base Veyron, Koenigsegg, are both letting their intentions to beat the new Veyron Super Sport at its own game be known.

SSC with its Because Life Begins at 250 slogan is preparing a new SSC Ultimate Aero to be shown in September that will potentially take back the title from the Halloween-colored supercar. You may also remember that the 2009 SSC Ultimate Aero was altered to produce more power and perform better aerodynamically although no new top speed runs were ever performed. At that time SSC estimated the Ultimate Aero's new top speed to be 270 mph.

Word from Top Gear is that Koenigsegg wants to reclaim the title after a five-year hiatus. No special model is being planned because Christian Von Koenigsegg believes the new Agera is capable of the feat.

This is getting better and better. First Koenigsegg takes it at 240.7, them Bugatti takes it at 253.81, then SSC at 256.14, then Bugatti again at 267.81, and now Koenigsegg is getting into the battle too?

This is going to make for some VERY jaw-droping design and engineering feats in the next few years.
