Ultima GTR

Today we have this supercar, which still looks the same after it was launched at the turn of the century. However, modifications have been made thru the years to improve its performance even more. One GTR currently holds the 0 - 100 - 0 MPH record for a production car, with a time of 9.8 seconds.

The data is from the GTR 640 version.

Engine: American Speed-Modified Chevrolet V8
Displacement: 6,277 cc
Power: 640 bhp @ 6,500 rpm
Torque: 560 lbft @ 4,800 rpm
Transmission: Porsche G50 Five-Speed Transaxle
Configuration: Mid engine, RWD
0 - 60 mph: 2.7 seconds
0 - 100 mph: 5.5 seconds
Top speed: 231 mph (gearing limited)

Re: Ultima GTR

Group C Le Mans style, on the road

Not sure it's much of a daily driver, but sub-zero all the same.

And don't give me that Kristin Scott Thoms BS either, if she doesn't like it she can walk......

Re: Ultima GTR

A genuine supercar that you can build in your garage? Has to be sub-zero.

Re: Ultima GTR

Fantastic car. Incredible performance. Ultra desirable track tool for any petrol head. It would definitely go in my lottery-winning fantasy garage.


But uncool.

Re: Ultima GTR

Hmmm...cool because of its performance (didn't it win Autocars 0-100-0 challenge) but you'd feel a bit of a fool turning up to work in one

Re: Ultima GTR

I love it. Its a road legal racing car that is supercar quick.

Ok the styling is a bit odd from certain angles but it is on many supercars.

Re: Ultima GTR

I think to be cool or better it should tick all the boxes.

It fails in the looks department by a country mile

Re: Ultima GTR

A car for the track and nothing more. On the road it would be awkward, uncomfortable and you would look like a ****. Uncool.

Re: Ultima GTR

As a kit car fan, I love it. Not the best looker in the world but American muscle with a British chassis so it goes fast in a straight line and round corners.

Wonder if they're going to show the 1:12 lap on the Top Gear track it set last year or if they're waiting to get hold of a Caterham Levante or something that can get close to it
