The Ultima GTR, the fastest street-legal supercar in the world. This is a place for owners, fans and fanatics to come together.
The Ultima is manufactured by Ultima Sports Ltd. out of Leicestershire, England. It is available as a build-yourself-kit or pre-assembled rolling-chassis. That's right, build your own Ultima, and its not that impossible of a task, even for a newcomer!
The GTR kit does not come with an engine or transmission. It is a mid-engine car, and is designed to bolt right up to a small-block Chevy V8 (American Speed engines are factory recommended) and a Porche G50 or Getrag transmission.
As for horsepower, that is totally up to you. Typically ranges are 300-600bhp, although there have been sitings of 1000bhp and more :)
The world-record setting Ultima with a 720bhp engine produced the following results:
0-60 mph: 2.6 seconds
0-100 mph: 5.3 seconds
0-100-0 time: 9.4 seconds
1/4 mile: 9.9 seconds
skidpad: 1.176g lateral g in 200' circle
This is all on a street-legal and very roadable vehicle!
As for price, a typical Ultima rolling-chassis is estimated at $89,000 US dollars. Building yourself, estimate $27,000 and go up depending on your options. The kit can be purchased in 17 different stages so if you want, you can buy as you go! Build times average between 8-24 months, and has been done in as little as 3 for the very determined :)
Ultima Sports also makes the Ultima Can-Am which is the convertible model, also available as a kit or rolling-chassis.
