The best is getting better.
The Campagnolo Super Record 11 speed Ultra Torque bottom bracket is hardly a component. The CULT ceramic bottom bracket bearings themselves are actually pre-pressed onto the Super Record 11 crankset semi-axles. When you buy a Super Record 11 Ultra Torque BB all you get is two empty bottom bracket cups (read: no bearings), plus one safety spring to hold your driveside crankarm in place while you install the non-driveside arm.
You can install the Ultra Torque Super Record bottom bracket cups with Campagnolo's UT-BB120 bottom bracket installation tool, or with the same Park BBT-9 tool you use to install Shimano Dura Ace BB cups. Campy specifies a 35Nm torque for installation. One other detail of note: The Super Record bottom bracket cups are hard anodized for corrosion-resistance. Unlike the silver color of the Record 11 bottom bracket cups, the Super Record cups have more of a pewter finish. Available in English (68mm) or Italian (70mm) threads.
While these BB's are stamped with "11 Speed Only" on the cups, please rest assured that Campy 10 speed and 11 speed bottom bracket cups ARE 100% interchangeable.
The actual weights of the Campagnolo Super Record 11 Ultra Torque Bottom Bracket: English is 52g. Italian is 48g.
