Jump to Images

Since 1992, British manufacturer Ultima Sports Ltd has built extremely high performance lightweight sports cars usually provided with GM engines. The basic design has not deviated too strongly over the years, which has led to continual incremental improvements to a level that was probably not imagined in the beginning. The current top model, the Ultima Evolution achieves 1020 hp in a body weighing only 2095 lbs, for a virtually unprecedented power to weight ratio of 2.1 lbs per hp. By comparison, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport is 3.7 lbs per hp.

0-60 mph is achieved in a blistering 2.3 seconds, on up to a top speed of over 240 mph.


(from Ultima Sports Ltd Press Release) ULTIMA LAUNCHES NEW EVOLUTION MODEL

Ultima Sports Ltd, British manufacturers of the world record holding Ultima GTR and Ultima Can-Am supercars, are pleased to announce the launch of an exciting new updated model today called the Ultima Evolution which is available in both Coupe and Convertible form. The Ultima Evolution Coupe and Ultima Evolution Convertible replace the Ultima GTR and Ultima Can-Am which are both now discontinued.

The Ultima Evolution retains the same timeless Le Mans Group C inspired body shape as the Ultima GTR and Ultima Can-Am but is a vastly improved and modernized supercar in every sense. The superior Evolution model takes the Ultima to even greater levels of fit, finish, quality, safety, driver comfort, usability, practicality, handling finesse and performance. Many of the enhancements found on the new Ultima Evolution model have been stimulated by worldwide customer demand and feedback. The power plant for the Ultima Evolution is the fuel injected LS Chevrolet V8 engine and the factory offers over 15 different power level options ranging from 350bhp for the base model up to the top of the range 1020bhp model.

The first Ultima Evolution Coupe production factory built demonstrator flagship model as pictured is equipped with the monstrous 1020bhp and 920ftlbs torque supercharged Chevrolet LS V8 official engine option delivering a power to weight ratio of over 1050bhp/ton which will really shake up the supercar scene and take the performance envelope of the Ultima to the next level. The new 1020bhp Evolution model has already been tested by the factory and has recorded a road legal 0-60mph time of 2.3secs, 0-100mph of 4.9secs with 0-150mph taking a mere 8.9 seconds! It has the capability to accelerate onwards to over 240mph. The 1020bhp Evolution model will surpass the performance envelope of the famous Ultima GTR720 current 0-100mph-0 world record holder which blasted around the top gear test track in full road going configuration in just 1min12.8secs with full video and GPS verified documentation.
