Shelby SuperCars, better known as SSC, makes very very fast cars. Its first effort, the Ultimate Aero TT, was pig ugly but took the Bugatti Veyron's 'fastest car eva' title, causing the firm to release the Veyron SuperSports. Shelby SuperCars' latest, the Tuatara, is set to steal the SuperSports' title back. Just for fun.
Anyway, the first word in Shelby SuperCars' name may sound familiar – though it's not the work of Cobra and Ford legend Carroll Shelby. It is in fact the work of a chap called Jerod Shelby, no relation to the great Carroll.
