Ultima's World Records

Ultima Sports Ltd successfully set a catalogue of world speed records for production road cars to demonstrate beyond any doubt the world beating performance envelope that the Ultima possesses. All world speed and lap records were set in a standard production specification Ultima GTR road car and were all independently overseen and timed in strictly controlled conditions by Datron Technology - official world speed record timekeepers.

The Ultima GTR was driven to and from the test venue on the public roads each time a world speed record was achieved, in the spirit that Ultima Sports Ltd believe all production road car world speed records should be conducted.
