Damn, you're funny... Where did you get it can handle? For what I've red, it's quite the opposite. Like the Koenigseggseggsegg, the Ultimate Aero is quite uncapable of negotiating corners... With fixed aerodynamics, the balance for optimum top speed (little downforce, minimum drag) has to be contrary to optimum handling (high downforce, more pressure against the ground to improve grip), so it's not suprising it goes straight off the road just with the sight os a bend!
