In this episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, he takes an up-close look at the SSC Ultimate Aero which is powered by a “a 1,183hp (882kW) twin-turbo V8 engine and posted an average top speed of 255.83mph (411.76km/h).” Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

Leno, who at the start of the clip admits he knows very little about the car, interviews the founder of the company behind it, Jerod Shelby, and comes away with a great deal more respect for it.
