Shelby SuperCars will launch its challenger for the title of world’s fastest production car next month.
The firm previously claimed the record with its SSC Ultimate Aero in 2007 with a speed of 412.28km/h (256.23mph), but this was eclipsed in June when Bugatti’s Veyron 16.4 Super Sport clocked 431.072km/h (267.91mph).
SSC will put 12 units of its new supercar into production, each unit costing between $800,000 and $900,000 (£510,000-£575,000).
The model was shown in private to VIPs and selected guests last month, while a similar event took place at Pebble Beach over the weekend.
The car is the work of new design chief Jason Castriota, who has worked on models including the Ferrari 599 and Maserati GranTurismo.
In a statement last month, SSC said the new model would be “upping the ante on all fronts” over the Ultimate Aero. No location for next month’s launch has been set, although the firm has released a teaser image of the new car on its website.
