    Still ugly.

    And that's a lot of record breaking times. None actually. Only skidpad and 60-0.


    And thanks for the pics, Maccie.

    I do believe that the Ferrari F50 has the same stats for skidpad, so that's not a broken record.

    Yes, I only listed the two specifications that were listed under ''Record breaking times''. Didn't say they are records. And probably 60-0 isn't a record...

    I realised that, thus my comment was aimed more at the general public than solely at you .

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Ultima GTR holds the 60-0 record, seeing as it took 10.3 seconds for 0-100(mph)-0 record (3.97 seconds for 100-0, 4.4 including driver reaction time), and it would seem rather unlikely (to me) for the space it stopped in to exceed the "record" set by the SSC.

    This is easily one of the sexiest cars ever made. Maybe Polophony will be wise and pick this up for their next game.

    what sort of engine is in there. The specs don't mention anything about the valve train. Is it an LS2 or something else?

    That I do believe.

    Do you also happen to have the statistics for the stopping distance, both from 100 and 60mph?

    Go to www.ultimasports.co.uk and they have the official timing data sheets from their various record runs.
