Production Years: 1999-2016
Officially the quickest supercar in the world
The Ultima GTR has been superseded by the Ultima Evolution Coupe and is no longer produced although spare parts are available for this model.
Ultima GTR - The quickest accelerating and decelerating supercar of all time and multiple world speed record holder.
The exciting Ultima GTR road car is the result of over 25 years of extensive research and development and is a product that takes the Ultima marque to sensational levels of fit, finish and performance. The world renowned GTR really is a supercar in every sense of the word which has officially humbled every last mainstream car on the planet bar none. The GTR has been crowned as the quickest production car in the world, beating the likes of the Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari Enzo and McLaren F1 to a plethora of world speed acceleration and deceleration records.
The Ultima GTR has also been independently timed around the Top Gear test track and was found to be a blistering 6.2 seconds per lap faster than the £450,000 Ferrari Enzo and 4.0 seconds per lap faster than the £1.5million Bugatti Veyron SS, staggering the onlookers witnessing the remarkable feat!
Aerodynamic efficiency and balance has been of paramount importance on a car that is capable of over 200mph. Attention has centred around the length the rear of the car to help clean up the airflow and thus improve down force, whilst maintaining a short front and rear overhang has ensured that the Ultima performs perfectly on normal roads taking speed bumps and ferry ramps in it's stride. These developments have been comprehensively tested at MIRA (the Motor Industry Research Association) where the group was so impressed by the results that it sought an Ultima GTR as the centrepiece for many exhibition appearances publicising the extensive facilities that they have available for car manufacturers.
The ultra clean look of the GTR and the faultless self-coloured gel coat bodywork has not been achieved through luck, but rather by design. The production car feel of the Ultima is immediately apparent, from the specially moulded headlight housings and covers to the immaculate panel fit and lack of any external body catches. Huge wheels front and back fill the wheel arches declaring it's performance potential while items such as the purpose-made electric wing mirrors combine to create the complete picture. The sensational appearance of the car has been applauded by designers and connoisseurs alike.
Whilst the GTR can be ordered as a turnkey supercar, it is also available in component form, for assembly by the home enthusiast which is how the majority of our customers prefer to purchase their GTR. As part of the GTR's gestation period, a great deal of time was spent to ensure that this is one of the easiest cars in the world to construct by somebody with no previous mechanical or car building experience.
For an Ultima owner, having an involvement in the car's construction and thus knowledge of every nut, bolt and component on the car makes every journey in the Ultima not merely an experience but an event. The sheer road presence that an Ultima commands has to be seen to be believed.
In short the Ultima is the weapon of choice for the car enthusiast that not only wants to own the quickest car on the planet but also wants to experience the intimate knowledge of the car of his desire.
The end result is a car that's causing a real sensation wherever it's seen. Journalists worldwide have been clambering to get a seat in the car and have waxed lyrical about the GTR's unique mind blowing attributes.
