That's the Top Gear film from last year, fantastic.
On last week's show in the News Section they briefly mentioned a new US or Canadian Supercar that can do 270 MPH, but I can't remember what it was.

Yes Arch, this car is called the Aero TT made by Shelby Supercars, SSC. Now American's can boast about having the fastest "production" car. I have the produced in quotation marks because it is really questionable on how you define production. If they can produce more than 100 cars a year, it is passable. The veyron by VW can easily produce quality cars and have a service department to back it up. I am not so sure about SSC.

Here's a link:

I suppose Bugatti could pretty easily up the turbo boost also to produce even more horsepower. They're running 15.8 psi, relatively low compared to some heavily modded tuners.

Also, I doubt the Aero would be better than the Veyron on a track.

The gas milage is impressive, though. A 1183hp car that gets 15/22 mpg's? That's rediculous.
