By the end of this year two of the fastest, most extreme cars to ever grace the earth will be available to discerning buyers. More accurately, they will begin to be delivered to buyers who ordered them well in advance.
McLaren and SSC (formerly Shelby SuperCars) have released more details about their shiver-inducing machines and the timing of their releases, which should be close enough to stage some pretty intense comparison testing. Instead of racing to 60 miles per hour, though, these cars will be measured by the time it takes to approach 200.
With around 2,200 horsepower between the two cars and prices well above a million dollars each, 2013 should end with a blistering battle for supercar supremacy.
