Ultima Evolution

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 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 powerplant 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. Note: (the car is street legal with street tires, numbers will be amazingly Shocking with slick tires and cat deletes).
Since the extremely successful world record holding Ultima GTR and Can-Am were first launched there have been over 15 years of continuous research and development taking place at the factory to every facet of the Ultima with many enhancements gradually introduced to the range. There is virtually no part of the Ultima Evolution that is in the same specification as when the GTR and Can-Am were first launched with fundamental changes and enhancements having taken place to the chassis, bodywork, drivetrain, wheels, cooling system, fuel system, steering system, suspension, lighting, interior and all key parameters on the Ultima.

The Ultima Evolution is an exciting new model from Ultima and it embodies all that the company has achieved with its previous acclaimed models, whilst incorporating a whole raft of exciting new features. Nothing on the Evolution has been taken for granted and every area has been meticulously researched before dedicated components are designed and fabricated by the factory. Unlike many high performance specialist cars, Ultima doesn't believe in the parts-bin mentality that sees components scavenged from other models. From designing and manufacturing its own cast aluminium uprights and hubs to having new body grills specifically manufactured for the Evolution, Ultima has striven to ensure there are no shortcuts when it comes to the quality of the end product.
