World’s fastest car zipping into city as part of auto event 

Do you have a need for speed?

The world’s fastest production car — the 2010 Shelby SuperCar Ultimate Aero, which can reach 265 mph — will be on display at the Fairmont Hotel as part of the GoldRush Rally.

Only two of the vehicles exist in the world.

The Shelby is one of 53 cars rolling through The City as part of the rally, a display of rare luxury cars that’s free to the public.

The event officially started Wednesday in Washington state. Drivers then headed to Oregon and are continuing through San Francisco, arriving Thursday night. At 10 a.m. today, drivers will depart the Fairmont for Los Angeles, ending in Las Vegas on Sunday.

In addition to the Shelby, a 2010 Ferrari Scuderia, a 2009 Maserati Gran Turismo, a 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago, a 2010 Bentley Continental GT and a 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS will be on display.

The cars will be at the Fairmont, located at 950 Mason St., from 7 to 10 a.m.
