Does anyone like the front view?



The Ultima Factory who are the current world record holders, have for the third consecutive year smashed the world record for sprinting to 100mph and back to zero again in the all conquering, multiple world record holding 200mph Ultima GTR supercar.

Driven by Ultima Director, Richard Marlow, the British built and designed Ultima GTR road car set a new world record time of a staggering 9.4 secs for the 0-100mph-0 sprint. The GTR scorched from:
0-60mph in 2.6 secs
0-100mph in 5.3 secs
100-0 in a mind blowing 3.6 secs

which are all in themselves road car world record times.

The Ultima GTR used for the successful record attempt was the factory’s standard production specification Ultima GTR640 demonstrator, which has recently been upgraded with a 720bhp Chevrolet V8 engine, and hence now known as the Ultima GTR720. The GTR720 was fully road legal, road tyred and equipped with a standard 5 speed G50 transmission and a standard production engine option from Ultima’s official OE engine suppliers American Speed. No traction control devices or ABS braking aids were used.

Richard Marlow commented, “ We always knew that the Ultima was more than capable of achieving performance figures of this caliber. There is no other supercar in history which can match the pace of the Ultima GTR in this discipline. Furthermore the GTR720 is available at a fraction of the price of all other supercars and is also fantastic to drive at more sedate road speeds with its road friendly engine

The Ultima GTR with its superior power to weight ratio is now over two seconds quicker from 0-100mph-0 than the £750,000 McLaren F1 LM, and over one and a half seconds quicker than the £450,000 Ferrari Enzo. What’s more the GTR720 performed these world beating statistics consistently and reliably time after time. The mind boggling 30-70mph time of just 1.8 seconds is further proof that the Ultima is so far ahead of any other car in terms of outright performance.

Damn that's impressive! Would love to see someone put a TT on that monster :D

Looks..., I would rather have an Italian super car.

How is the handling compared to the other super cars?

You'll be moving too fast for a blind spot...LOL

And too bad it's ugly...it's a sick fast car though

*EDIT* WTF kind of street tires are those? other than the lines running the length of the tire, there is no tread.

Top flight supercars seem to always have a big issue in some area. It's pretty hard to make a supercar that has superior aerodynamics, top speed stability, goo d overall visibility, good safety all around, handling, etc, all while being unique on it's own, there is always going to be something. With the Enzo the biggest gripe is the styling, they are coming out with a new Enzo that will not be called an Enzo (forgot the name that fast, I think its Nuovo), but it's based off the FXX and will have close resemblance to an F1 car in the front.

I always wanted to see what a turbo LS7 would do in a Mosler MT900S.

Yeah those GTR's are badass! Don't think I would enjoy it on the street too much, but if I had the money to get any track car I wanted, it would be this for sure.

But for people who don't have that much to spend on a badass track car (I know it's technically a street car) I'd go with the Radical, Atom, or Factory Five GTM.

Anyone notice that in that video at the end when he is driving off, it clearly sounds like he is shifting manually, but his left hand is on the streering wheel... where is the shifter?

Badass car though! Id love to drive that! Id drive it everyday...

Btw, those wheels look like Volk GTPs.
