Customer Testimonials

I wanted to write to say a big thank you to you and everyone at Ultima for making building the GTR such a great experience. The build quality of the car is fantastic, which has made it enjoyable to work on. I have only done a few miles because the weather has been so bad. I'm looking forward to some dry roads, sunshine and dry tracks.
Richard Sturt
Ultima GTR

Two months old and six thousand miles on the clock. Time to report in? I have used the Ultima Sport every day, in all weathers and for journeys long and short. I just can't get enough hours behind its' wheel! I am delighted with the stunning performance and the effortless way it copes with everything I ask it to do. Needless to say it is the centre of attraction wherever I go. I would like to personally thank you and your excellent team for the help given to me throughout the project. It was tremendously rewarding seeing the car progress from bare chassis to completion and I have enjoyed every minute of it.
Ian Dunn
Ultima Sports

I would like to thank you and your team for the excellent service and help during the construction of the car. Now the Spyder is completed, I must say it is an absolute pleasure to drive, and the performance and handling are truly excellent, making my Audi S2 Quattro feel like a Reliant Robin with flat tyres after the experience.
Nick Wilson
Ultima Spyder

After collecting my car from your factory on Saturday I felt the need to put in writing my gratitude for all help and support given to me during the last 18 months build of my GTR. I was highly impressed by the quality and effort that had gone into finishing off my car and it looked simply stunning. During the 75-mile journey home my confidence grew and the car lived up to all my expectations; it was far easier to drive than I ever imagined. I would especially like to thank Ted, Richard and Andy who never failed to be patient, helpful and polite throughout my 18 months of fussing and questioning. Over the next few years I am looking forward to being the proud owner of an Ultima GTR, during which time I hope to appreciate the car for all it promises to be. Once again, thanks!!
James Crewe
Ultima GTR

I just wanted to thank you all for doing a fantastic job on my car. After two and a half years work, I'm so pleased to have it finally running. The paint job looks wonderful, the interior looks excellent and it handles like something else. I know I thanked you guys on the day, but I wanted to thank you formally. I've done over 500 miles so far and it keeps getting better.
Matthew Yorke
Ultima Spyder

I would just like to say a big thank you to you all at Ultima Sports, who "lovingly" carried out the check-over and work on my Ultima Spyder just recently. I believe that you have a perfect package back there which many so-called "leading specialist car builders" could learn a thing or two from. Lets hope they don't find out too quick! The car is behaving impeccably since leaving the factory. The pleasure as I queued up on the A14 on the way home for 45 minutes or more in the rain, was displayed by the huge grin on my face as the temperature stayed rock steady at 85 degrees and the engine just purred like a pussy cat! The road manners are now a delight to experience and the whole feeling in the "seat of your pants" thing is a joy to behold. Not bad for an "old girl" who has seen some hard action in the last 4 years. The welcome - the attention to detail - the advice - the workmanship - the most obvious enthusiasm, and above all the patience to deal with the like of me! These are qualities that deserve shouting out to all those that have any doubts about the decision of buying one of your fine cars, either direct from the factory or as a private sale.
Robert Shepherd
Ultima Spyder

I'd like to take this opportunity to send my thanks to you and all the employees at Ultima Sports. My GTR made its inaugural trip last weekend and I have not been disappointed. The car has lived up to all my expectations even though I am still running the engine in. I have been very impressed with the support your team have given me over the last year or so. Special thanks go to Richard, Andy & Dave who I have dealt with on numerous occasions and they have been both courteous and very patient! As have all the team, but I mainly found myself dealing with these guys. Thank you once again and I'll see you all at the forthcoming open day.
Paul Buckthorpe
Ultima GTR

The factory is fair and honest and builds a top quality product. The after the sale support is great and I have had no problem getting information or guidance despite being across the ocean from them. Ted and Richard are great to deal with... end of report. Thanks for making my automotive dreams a reality.
Brad Zeman
Ultima GTR

At this point I have only three regrets........
I haven't met all the people at Ultima who helped make my kit and thank them in person.
I haven't had the famous "Ted" ride.
I haven't been able to show you and Richard the finished product.
Hopefully at some point I'll check off all three of these from my list. In the meantime.....I'd like to buy lunch for everyone at your shop as a thank you for the fine job. Please pick a day.....order out what you like and send me the bill.....which I'll happily pay.
Brad Zeman
Ultima GTR

Now that the build is coming to an end and I can look forward to getting the car on the road, I would be remiss in not letting you know that I have found your whole team extremely helpful in answering my many questions.
Nick Bacon
Ultima GTR

I thought you would like to know that I have just returned from a 900 mile round trip to Germany which included about 100 miles of track time on the Old Nurbergring and the car performed perfectly. The car was the centre of attention despite many Porsche's and Ferrari's being present. A TV crew were there from a German cable channel called Motor Vision who used it to film a trailer, which will be aired during the year to encourage viewers to tune in to their sport programmes. They said they would send me a copy of the film and if they do I will pass it on. I also took a couple of pictures of the filming, which I can pass on if you would like them.
Nick Bacon
Ultima GTR

Just thought I should drop a line to say how very pleased I am with the kit. As I have never built a car before I was a bit worried if this was a good idea or not, as the alloy panelling looked a bit tricky and I certainly was not fitting the body. But when I started to fit the panelling it went so smoothly and easy that it was over in no time, now even when I look at the finished panelling I am so proud that I fitted that and it looks like a very professional job, even though I say so myself. Also like to say that the quality of parts and how easy everything just fits together is excellent, along with the packaging and attention to detail. Everything you need is always packed along with the item in separate bags and labelled accordingly this makes life so much easier. The way the build has gone, it has built my confidence to say that if I can do all this I certainly can fit the body, so fingers crossed it will go as well as the rest of the build. Only trouble is I am running out of things to fit to the chassis before the body arrives, as everything is going quicker than expected. Also just to say how please I am with the help from you and the staff and especially Andy who will be tired of hearing my voice on the phone asking how this fits by the end of the build, if he has not already. One happy customer:-)
Chris Morris
Ultima GTR

I would like to say a monumental thank you to Ted, Richard and the crew at Ultima for helping me realise my dream. There is little doubt that the GTR is a sensational piece of hardware. As for the build, this is easily in the realms of any mechanically minded individual. Combined with the clear commitment and professionalism shown by the factory, this is a stonking proposition for any kit car builder. If you are a car nut then you will find it hard if not impossible, to surpass such an experience. Beg, borrow or even see your bank manager if you have to. One of these beasts sitting in your garage will leave a permanent grin on your face. Guaranteed.
Nigel Dean
Ultima GTR

He takes delivery of the car today. All the best to the team at Ultima. You make a great car and I may well be a customer again someday.
David Fox
Ultima Can-Am

Your Ultima is a fantastic machine and I'd like to assist in your continued success any way that I can.
Jeff Schwartz
Ultima GTR

I have had a blast owning my GTR, how many people in the world own the fastest car in the world.
Gareth Pitts
Ultima GTR

Once again thank you for your assistance and for developing an absolutely awesome car.
Simon Rossinelli
Ultima GTR

I took the car out for a spin yesterday, and I'm still grinning. How many miles does it take to get rid of the nervousness? I've caught myself falling into the trap of "how to make the car better," but driving the car slaps sense into me! I'll probably never earn the cars respect. Right now the car just laughs at me. Ha. You have taken the car as far as a road car can be taken I must admit. God bless you Ted for designing such perfection!
Mack Norris
Ultima Sports

The car's really amazing. I'm no expert driver like yourself, but this car really inspires confidence with novice drivers. I enjoy taking the twisties a lot more with this car than I did with my old BMW M3. I always thought the bimmer was an exceptional handling car, but it doesn't even compare. You sort of know your in a different league of car when you turn onto the motorway with a "half-assed ½ throttle" and your already upto 65-70mph in 2nd gear. Ha. What a beast. No tickets yet. So far the cops just want to wave. Thanks again! Cheers!
Mack Norris
Ultima Sports

Great news about the world record, excellent performance, well done Richard and the rest of the team. So proud to be building an Ultima.
Dave Hodge
Ultima GTR

This level of service and dedication cannot be allowed to go without some mention of my great appreciation. I will forever be grateful and cannot recommend your company highly enough.
Alan Burrows
Ultima Can-Am

I want to use this opportunity to say that the service I get from you and your company is always 100%. So if you have any Scandinavian clients and need a reference I will be more than glad to talk to them.
Helge Johnson
Ultima Spyder

Thanks for all of your help as I was impressed at the measure at which Ultima Sports helped me on this project. This is my third car I've completed in the last 10 years and it was by far the best engineered kit I have done. It will also be the fastest by far.
Jack McCauley
Ultima GTR

You'll get a very warm welcome at Ultimas. Guys there are a great bunch, very professional and enthusiastic in their work. I don't think I have had dealings with a better company.
Gary Grist
Ultima GTR

I have so little car building experience, yet had turned out a complete car in about 10 months from delivery. I think this speaks volumes to the incredible design that you have put together. You have truly created an automotive marvel. It is, and will always be, a privilege for me to say that I have built one of your cars.
Craig Dillon
Ultima GTR

As I gradually get more comfortable driving my Ultima, I can't help but be indebted to you both (and the Ultima factory crew, of course), for creating this car. It is absolutely remarkable. Today I finally got comfortable enough to down-shift one gear to overtake on the interstate. The acceleration is incredible, even though I still can't rev the engine over 4000 rpm due to sheer terror! The handling of the car is so incredibly precise, and the intimacy with the road is a completely amazing experience. You have an automotive genius that goes beyond mere superlatives.
Craig Dillon
Ultima GTR

I am extremely impressed and satisfied. I never went past 4000rpm in any gear, but can tell that its performance in the power band will be all that I expected, and more than I will ever need. A wonderful toy for keeping one from feeling the effects of pending old age. Beautiful car. Outstanding support.
Al Rubin
Ultima GTR

I really do appreciate your excellent service and assistance.
Allen Holz
Ultima GTR

Richard, I just put this car on the road a couple of days ago. It is incredible. I just sold my Diablo SVR a couple of months ago and it was fast. The Ultima makes it feel like there was something wrong with it.It is the fastest streetcar I have ever driven. I drive Ferraris, Porsches, Lambos belonging to customers all the time.
Karl Troy
Ultima GTR

I have been impressed by the attitude and willingness of your company. I would have no hesitation in recommending your organisation, the car itself is absolutely tremendous.
Paul Searle
Ultima Can-Am

I am very much impressed with the timeliness and quality of the advise I receive from you. Because of its uniqueness, sensational looks, first class construction and wonderful handling, I am very proud to be an Ultima owner. Knowing the factory stands ready, willing and able to assist makes ownership of this supercar even more special. You can use me as a reference for potential customers anytime.
Al Rubin
Ultima GTR

I must thank you for patiently helping me with my many daft questions and your very professional and efficient asistance, trust me when I say that this has made all the difference to me.
Andrew Walker
Ultima Can-Am

I had my first track day experience last weekend, and it was incredible. I worked with two instructors over the day. I let them drive my car with me in the passenger seat and this was absolutely incredible! After just 3 laps my neck hurt from the sideways g-forces. The current professional race driver got the car to around 165 mph on the main straight and we took turn one at 145 mph and turn two at about 110 mph. His comments were all positive:
- the steering precision was perfect
- the brakes were beyond his expectation, and he felt that there was extra depth well beyond where he used them
- the ability of the car to manage weight transfer coming into corners was incredible - exactly like race cars that he has driven
- the torque of the engine was absolutely unbelievable
- the linearity of the acceleration was perfect (and very desirable)
- he commented that the car had a bit of oversteer, but that is exactly the way he instructed his team to set his cars up, so he really liked this
Thanks again for creating such a wonderful car that someone like me can build and be a proud owner of.
Craig Dillon
Ultima GTR

As someone who has gone through what you are contemplating I can tell you it's one of the most gratifying experiences I've ever had. Dealing with the Ultima factory is a joy as they are responsive, honest and fair. I deal with all kinds in my business but can honestly say Richard and Ted are "the real deal". I'm not on the Ultima payroll either.....just a fan of the product and the great people behind it. One last comment......the car is UNBELIEVABLE!
Brad Zeman
Ultima GTR

Just downloaded, the "World Record", Well Done, Congratulations, You've worked long and hard enough, and a well deserved achievement, I'm extremely proud, to be a proud, and very happy, ULTIMA "GTR", Owner and Driver, Our Car has appeared on the front cover of "Just Parts ", a National Full Coloured Cover, Parts Magagine, together with a half page overview. Also, a double page spread, featuring our car, in Just Cars Magazine,May Edition, 2006. "Thank You", for my car, believe me, its seen virtually on a Weekend basis, here on the Sunshine Coast, Hinterland, and is the MAST-HEAD for the Adds I run, Nationally, as I've said before. I was born to drive an ULTIMA GTR and love it. THANK YOU, very much.
Chris Burke
Ultima GTR

I have thoroughly enjoyed the build, you have a great product!!
Grant Craft
Ultima GTR

As the build is almost over, I'd like to thank you all again for producing such a fine kit. And for all your help. I'm very happy that I chose your kit.
Ray Halin
Ultima GTR

The Ultima is, and always will be, the only car for me. Shaking as I opened the garage doors, jumped in, fired her up and brought her out into the lovely sunshine, 80 miles later after blowing a few cobwebs away, the performance was almost better than sex (lasted longer). You will never regret it, after all you can't take the money with you, and there is no point in being the richest man in the graveyard, GET IT SPENT, buy an Ultima.
Russell Horner
Ultima Can-Am

Thank you so much. The GTR is a joy to own, and drive!!
David Salama
Ultima GTR

I have been fortunate enough to pilot a wealth of seriously impressive and expensive machinery and promise an Ultima of whatever form, be it a GTR or Can-Am, will make any other car you have driven pale into insignificance.
Nigel Dean
Ultima GTR

I have very much enjoyed the build, and still get excited every time I start it! Thanks for all your excellent support and help over these last 3 years. You have been great to work with!
Allan Reinhard
Ultima GTR

Congratulations on your new world record, I own a GTR and love it!
Rick Conti
Ultima GTR

Thank you very much. This is a beautiful kit you've produced.
Paul Champlin
Ultima GTR

Just wanted to let you know that I have finished my build. I registered and tagged the car in the end of December.
Since then I have driven about 800 trouble free miles. I can't tell you both how much I have enjoyed driving this car. It is by far the fastest, best handling, best braking, most incredible looking, etc...,etc ..., etc..., car I have ever driven.
Every time I take it out, it's an adventure. People just can't get over it. Fueling the car is always interesting. I'm sure you have heard all this before and experienced it yourselves, but it's just been such a hoot that I had to share......
I took it to a car show last Sunday and It won an "overall best of show" award. How cool is that? I overheard people calling it a Ferrari, a Lamborghini, etc. I spent 5 hours answering, what is it?, how fast, how much does it cost? who makes it? , over and over again.
I plan on taking the car to Sebring raceway for a track day this spring. I'll send some pix with the Sebring international raceway signs in the background.
I've included some pix of the car, and wanted to thank you again for the great kit, and for all your help. It truly was a pleasure building the car and doing business with both of you.
Ray Halin
Ultima GTR

You build a great car. I am having a lot of fun with it and now the weather is just about perfect.
Thanks again for everything.
Chris Moody
Ultima Can-Am

You guys are the best. I may have a 1 day layover from Abu Dabi back to L.A. in May, if so I would love to travel up from London and buy you guys lunch.
Lee Benson
Ultima GTR

I am very impressed with the chassis, and all of the various components. Thanks for the awesome kit- I'm really looking forward to building it.
Chris Julian
Ultima GTR

Just to say I've thoroughly enjoyed the whole build process and you've met all my high expectations. I'll send you a more formal letter in due course but, for now, many thanks to you, Ted and the rest of the crew! Can-Am next!
Tony Knight
Ultima GTR

My Can Am is complete and on the road. Am very satisfied. The car is awesome.
Eric Kimbro
Ultima Can-Am

Here I was, check it out. The biggest car meeting in Norway. I win the 1st prize for the best sports car. I drive the Ultima from Bergen to Oslo and to the track Rudskogen, + a lot of driving on the track +++ and back home on Monday, to Bergen about 1300 miles. A brilliant car, and big fun.
Oeyvind Sorli
Ultima GTR

I appreciate this wonderful kit your company produced!
Paul Champlin
Ultima GTR

The car is fantastic! I am very happy with it, and you can be proud.
Bo Jorgensen
Ultima Can-Am

Richard: thanks for the info. When someone asks me about the possible purchase of an Ultima I always talk about your technical support first. Its one thing to have a great car its another to be able to support it. I guess that shows my helicopter background coming through. Thanks again.
Lee Benson
Ultima GTR

I am very, very impressed with your product. The over all quality, finish and fit, the way you package up and label all the parts, etc.. You guys have a great product and approach.
Randall Duart
Ultima GTR

Building of the car goes very, very well. Outstanding quality of the materials makes it a pleasure to work on the car! Building also goes relatively quick.
Cor Mol
Ultima GTR

I have covered many miles on Shropshire's roads (in most weather conditions) and have thoroughly enjoyed every single mile. No problem with speed bumps, either! I thought that the GTR would be a handful in wet conditions but even in the rain the car grips and handles very well. More importantly, on a cold damp road, the GTR forgives the right foot enthusiasm of someone who has no track day experience. On long trips, the car is comfortable and reliable and the engine note intoxicating. On the open road, the acceleration is mind blowing. Would I swap it for any other car? No chance.
Tony Knight
Ultima GTR

You guys are great! Thanks for the post sales support! I wish other companies would learn from your lead.
Paul Champlin
Ultima GTR

Thanks for producing such an incredible automobile.
David R. TenHulzen

This car is bonkers,best I have had :-)
Barry Ives

Thanks Richard. You guys are the best. I am loving my garage full of parts...I know I'll love the GTR when it is finished.
Jere Haigh
Ultima GTR

Just wanted to let you know how much enjoyment I'm getting from the build, the more I progress the more addicted I'm getting, I went home in my lunch break today to do some work, perhaps I need to get out more!
Anyway thanks for everything so far.
Matt Leckenby
Ultima GTR

All in all though having spent years going through all the Italian exotica and wasting huge sums of money in the process I should have bought a 600hp plus Ultima a long time ago, the driving experience is better than any I've experienced before and the acceleration does just make you burst out loud laughing! I must congratulate you on a stunning product!
Kurt Lillywhite
Ultima GTR

The car is just stunning, the performance and handling is beyond all my expectations and it only promises to get better, truly a credit to the factory and all concerned.
Dan McDonald
Ultima GTR

Thought we would spend a few days driving around northern Spain in the Can-Am. Great roads. What a fantastic car this is. Thanks lots for all your help to date.
Clive Grummett
Ultima Can-Am

I commend Ted and yourself Richard for the wonderful new car you build. In this world of poor quality this car stands out as a shining example of sound design and function with thought and quality. As always your friend.
Jack Allen
Ultima Sports

Thanks very much for producing this outstanding kit! Bernard and I have now finally finished our Ultima GTR in Singapore. In fact it's the first Ultima in Singapore and the second one in Asia after Grant's GTR in Hong Kong. We couldn't possibly be happier with the completed product. The GTR has been creating quite a stir down here and we have received a couple of informal inquiries from interested petrolhead friends. Of course there is no way that we're selling our car. But we're thinking of building a second or third GTR since we had so much fun the first time round.
Willy Ballmann
Ultima GTR

The kit is great your help is great the time you have spent in design and engineering on this car really shows.I love it and I have two customers that have stopped by to watch the build and now want me to build them each one.So shortly i will be ordering two more.
John Dodge
Ultima Can-Am

I wanted you to know that I am proud to be an Ultima owner. It is a wonderfully built car. A real work of art and science.
Tom Nardone

I am bloody loving building this car. So a BIG thankyou.
Mark Higham

Absolutely love the car - just awesome on a bendy B road!!
Ben Russell

Thanks for creating and maintaining such a fantastic and unique car as the Ultima.
Alex Wagner
Ultima Sports

I am loving every bit of my Ultima GTR here in Charlotte NC. I routinely take first place in my local sport car club time trial track events in the unlimited category.
David Salama
Ultima GTR

Having waited so long to get behind the wheel of my own car, the grin factor just gets better and better with every drive.
Lawrence Curtis
Ultima GTR

I'd like to extend my sincere thanks to all of the staff there at Ultima Sports. From my initial order to all of my silly (and sometimes obvious) questions, everyone has been more than willing to go that extra distance to lend me a helping hand. The fit and finish of the car is superb and the amount of attention it receives in this city of rich Arabs and their exotic super cars is testament to the amount of time and effort that has gone into the engineering and design of this amazing car. Nobody here has seen anything like it and it takes at least 30 minutes to get out of the petrol station as the car is literally swarmed with curious onlookers. Thanks again.
Bill Tate
Ultima GTR

I have just arrived home after driving my Ultima home and have to say it is brilliant. What an experience even in the rain and with a very light foot!! I'm looking forward to the next few weeks trying it out and letting it settle down. Thank you and thanks to Richard, Andy, Jeff and the rest of the team for the effort you have put in. It's fantastic.
Jim Davidson
Ultima GTR

The journey to date with yourselves, the build and final goal has been highly enjoyable; I can't thank you enough for your customer service, attention to detail and efficiency as a business. I am a die-hard enthusiast; there is no other car I want to own and drive more than an Ultima GTR!
Travis Hurlock
Ultima GTR

I am pleased to say that the car drives like a dream the G50 transmission is perfectly synched to the motor. I have to say this car has beautiful stability and the front splitter never bumps. The seats are very comfortable The brakes are amazing, they never lock up and simply scrub speed with precision. I had the car at my local quarter mile track and did one practice run on the very cold pavement and easily hit 10.2 @141 My only problem was too much power on the launch. Did I mention that my reaction time was extremely slow. Some locals said that in the right conditions I could probably see low low 9 second times Once again thanks Ted and Richard for making this whole process easy and truly enjoyable for me.
Brett Weinman
Ultima GTR

Just wanted to say thank you all for the fantastic support I've received throughout my build.
Matt Leckenby
Ultima GTR

I just wanted to say a massive thanks for all of your patience, support and excellent customer service. Building the GTR was a fantastic experience and exactly what I was looking for - an extremely well developed product, but one which allowed me some individual flexibility in my choices.
Paul Buckley
Ultima GTR

I would like to thank you for creating such an amazing car as the GTR, and for making it available to be enjoyed by people like myself.
Eric Paquette
Ultima GTR

I've long held Ultima in high regard just from seeing them at a few shows and pictures on the website but having my own and time to really take it in I'm astonished by just how good they are. I'm sure every new buyer has a moment of "have I done the right thing" when buying a new car but now I've got the chassis I'm 100% sure I have.
Simon Rafferty
Ultima GTR

My prior experience had been with restoration of vintage cars, but this was the first time I have built a new car from scratch. However, soon after opening up the shipping container last August, I knew that I had made a good choice going with Ultima. The packaging of the build parts was so well labelled and complete, and together with the construction CD, and the immediate response of any emails, I knew that I would have full factory backing throughout the project. Again, thanks for a job well done. The car is so much fun to drive - I already have over 2500 miles on the odometer, and I know I am just beginning to enjoy a car that will easily meet and exceed all performance expectations that I will be asking of it.
Robert Wood
Ultima GTR

Thank you so much for your excellent service and the extremely high quality of all the parts supplied.
Graham Reddin
Ultima GTR

I am very impressed with the quality of your product. Everything from the product itself to the packing, crating, and recommended brokerage service. I have owned (and still own) some pretty high end stuff and at this point in my life it is hard to impress me. Well done.
Jon Payne
Ultima GTR

I have been participating in open road racing here in the USA since 1990, driving first a Mitsubishi 3000 VR4, then a Pantera, and latest a Corvette Z06. I wanted to increase my speed bracket and started looking for a car that would meet all the safety requirements of the "unlimited" class of cars- meaning a full roll cage, fuel cells. and on board fire protection system. As most of the cars in this class are trailered to and from the event by their participants, I wanted something more- I wanted a car that I could drive from Los Angeles to northern Nevada, run at 200mph, and drive home. Those requirements led me to find an select the Ultima for my next car. Well, after two prior runs, I was finally able to succeed in meeting my goals when I built the car. This last September, I was able to drive from LA to the Silver State Challenge in Nevada, race the car and beat the 200mph target, and return home without any mechanical problems, a total round trip of about 1800miles. Anyway just wanted to let you know that I am having a great time with the GTR, have just turned over 11,000 miles on the odometer now that the car has been on the road for 18 months, and I LOVE IT!
