Of all of the unknown British automakers you might have never heard about, you will agree that Ultima is for sure one of the most impressive.
This company has created supercars…
…which might be mistaken for a or Daytona Prototype or Group C racer for more than a two decades now, and has just introduced what promises to be the most dominating models yet.
The new Ultima Evolution car is created on the same Lee Noble design as the Ultima Sports and the Ultima GTR before it, but benefits from a long list of enhancements and upgrades.
Today boasts improved levels of fit and finish, higher-quality paint, LED lighting, optimized ergonomics, more carbon-fiber components, upgraded interior equipment, streamlined aerodynamics…
In other words:
almost anything the boys at Ultima were able to improve, they did.
All of these looks well and fine, especially for the company’s customers who have been asking for the improvements, but what makes Ultima’s supercar great is its power to weight ratio.
Motivation comes from a Chevrolet V8 crate engine that can be in fifteen different states of tune ranging from 350 hp right up to 1,020 in the top-of-the-line supercharged version.
But the Evolutino only weighs about one ton – 2,094 lbs, to be more precise…
giving it a far higher ratio than just about anything else on the road.
Meaning on top trim, the new Ultima car will hit to 60 miles per hour in a hardly believable 2.3 seconds, strike 100 in 4.9 and to 150 in 8.9.
It will sprint the quarter-mile in 9.2 seconds, run 0-100-0 in 8.8 seconds and top out at over 240 miles per hour.
Let there be no mistake about it:
those are certifiably insane performance figures.
Even in the 480-hp spec it’ll hit 60 in 3.1 seconds.
This basically means, the Ultima Evolution should not have problem beating the many world records the former GTR has already claimed, and many that it did not.
Be expecting speed records, lap records, and acceleration records to start dropping like dominoes.
Ultima will be now focused on producing the Evolution as it retires the GTR, with an open-roof Evolution convertible to replace the outgoing Can-Am, also.
Both will be available as kits you build for yourself or as turn-key vehicles straight from the factory.
