The PPX stock FASTEST was halted and delisted today after the Ultimate Aero TT, produced by Shelby Supercars, posted an average top speed of 411.76 km/h during speed tests in the Nevada Desert, breaking the Guinness record for worlds fastest production car, and thus unseating the Bugatti Veyron from the record-holding position. The Ultimate Aero is powered by a 6.3-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 882 kW of energy at 6,950 RPMs.
This proposition was trading at just POP$49.75 per share when the record was broken, paying out at POP$100 per share. —Megan Miller

Since PopSci's inception, we've had a special place in our heart for cars. Cars that fly and cars that swim. Cars that glide along on three wheels, or one, or none. Rocket autos, sleeper buses, monster trucks-we've covered them all (and, on occasion, more than once).Launch our blast-from-the-past gallery to see our conception of the future as we saw it way back when, as well as the future as we view it now. Have we guessed right? You be the judge.
