Believe it or not, the Ultima GTR was one of the fastest cars on earth and you could build it yourself because it is a kit! Here is a picture of one we saw next to our office in Dubai.
But now, England’s Ultima released the Ultima Evolution Coupe and things just got that much better.
Let’s talk about the Ultima GTR first, so you can understand how serious thing are when we say they got much better. We are talking about a car you build by yourself, a kit that enables you to get from 0-100 km/h in 2.6 seconds, and if you feel like taking it to the drag strip expect a time of 9.9 seconds @ 143 mph for the quarter mile.
Now, let’s discuss the Ultima Evolution Coupe. I’m not going to waste your time with useless chatter about how great this and that is. The Evolution Coupe banks a V8 engine from General Motors that can produce 1,020 hp which means the Ultima Evolution Coupe will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 240 mph if you dare try. Now that we got that out of the way, you might be interested to know that there an Evolution Convertible option if you are crazy enough to accelerate that fast with no roof on.
The update ensures that the Ultima Evolution Coupe gets better quality improvements overall ranging from safety, quality fit and finish plus better handling, driver comfort and overall usability improvements. You will notice that the Ultima Evolution Coupe gets new headlight units made with machined anodized aluminum bezels, carbon fiber accents, forged alloy wheels made from 1 piece, wireless integrated button controls instead of rocker switches, a new uprated chassis and extra trim options for the interior which isn’t fancy – and it should’t be. But if you need some creature comforts, you can get a backup camera, satellite navigation, parking sensors, an Alpine sound system and Bluetooth connectivity.
If you want to purchase the Ultima Evolution Coupe – a complete kit with every bolt needed to get you on the road with the registration papers from the UK based company expect to shed $41,000 with free shipping to the United States only. That’s less than you would spend from an BMW M3 for a car than can destroy most hypercars out there, now that’s something to think about.
