Flat Out: Bare bones speed in an Ultima GTR


#1

In the world of supercar comparisons that pit laps times against dollar signs, there is one underdog not to be missed. The Ultima GTR can humble seven-figure machinery with a fraction of the price tag. Built by Ultima Sports of England, models in the US exploit the loopholes in kit car regulations. American customers buy a fully completed rolling chassis, then fit an engine and transmission specified by Ultima to install with relative ease. Or, as is the case here, you can let someone else do the work and buy a second-hand car.

If I remember right, this was the first car to go 0mph - 100mph - 0mph in under 10 seconds.
