The Ultima GTR is a fantastic kit car I have always sat and admired the beauty of the Ultima GTR it looks like a real super car and on sunny days, especially at the Stoneleigh kit car show they look absolutely amazing. The noise they make their sleek lines and at this moment, the general feel of them only makes me dribble and one day I will personally I’m own one of these tremendous looking kit cars.
The Ultima GTR is one of the fastest accelerating and decelerating kit cars and production cars ever and has won many world records for its land speeds. The Ultima GTR is the end product of more than 20 years of hard research and development, but this is the reason why the Ultima GTR is such a brilliant well built high-performing sports car it is a super car in every single sense, which is really showing up all the mainstream super cars. The Ultima GTR was officially crowned as the fastest production car ever, it beat other top super car manufacturers like Ferrari Enzo the Bugatti Veyron and McLaren F1 these were all for the acceleration and deceleration records.
The Ultima GTR was put through its paces at the Top Gear track, and it was 6.2 seconds a lap quicker than the Ferrari Enzo, and apparently it was a real site for onlookers witnessing it destroy a £450,000 super car.
The aerodynamics and balance have always been a massive importance of a super car that is more than able to doing over 200 miles an hour and the attention to lengthen the car has always been something that the Ultima GTR has been proud of. The length helps clean the airflow and this in turn improves the down force while still maintaining a very short front and back body over hang, which makes it a lot easier to drive on normal everyday roads. Going over speed bumps and of course getting up and down the multi-storey car parks that are scattered all over the UK, unlike the Ferrari Enzo or the McLaren F1 as these have always been problems that other super cars have encountered.
The one thing about the Ultima GTR is that the bodywork is it gel coat bodywork the has not been designed or achieved through luck it was designed through design. The Ultima GTR feels like a production car from its specially designed headlight moulded housings and its lack of external body catches, it’s massive four wheels to fill its arches, which just sets off the fact that you know it is going to be a very, very quick performing car. It is a truly beautiful car.
Even though the Ultima GTR is a kit car it can also be ordered ready built so it ticks both boxes for the homebuilder enthusiasts like myself who enjoys building kit cars and to the other group of people who just want a brilliant sexy looking super car. Very much like the freestyle kit car the Ultima GTR is extremely easy to build and even for someone with truly little mechanical knowledge, and tools, they can build one safely and have it on the road in a plausible amount of time for a reasonable price.
As with building any kit car if you are the owner and builder of the kit car, you know every single nut and bolt that go into building it. It’s not really an experience with the Ultima GTR, but a part of your life, and an event that you will no doubt talk about to your children and their grandchildren. The sheer presence that the Ultima GTR has on the road has to only be seen to be appreciated and believed; it is astoundingly brilliant.
If I had all the money in the world the Ultima, GTR would be my choice of not only kit car, but super car, and it would be a very, very cheap car compared to the likes Ferrari, Lamborghini, or even Porsche. I said right from the start, I’ve always enjoyed looking at the Ultima GTR, and I will continue to admire them until I get the pleasure of not only owning one but being the proud builder of one.
If you want to order and Ultima GTR straight from the factory, then prices start around £50,000 +VAT which as you can imagine being not a lot of money for a whole lot of car. However, if you are looking at building one, yourself will save you money and is probably the way I would go about it, but if you wanted to have one built for you, then the Ultima GTR is fantastic money well spent.
