Ultima GTR 640/720 2005-

ULTIMA FACTORY DEMOLISHES ITS OWN WORLD RECORD

The Ultima Factory, who are the current world record 0-100mph-0 holders, today proved beyond any doubt that the Ultima GTR is the fastest accelerating and decelerating road car on the planet by setting a new world record time of 9.8 seconds for the 0-100mph-0 sprint. This is the first ever sub ten seconds 0-100mph-0 recorded in the world!

The standard factory production specification Ultima GTR was powered by a 377c.i 685bhp Chevrolet V8 engine once again built by American Speed who are the official Original Equipment engine suppliers to Ultima. This engine is a standard part option available from the American Speed pricelist.

The Ultima GTR stormed from 0-60mph in 2.8secs and 0-100mph in 5.8 secs which are in themselves world record times, and braked from 100mph to zero in just 3.6 secs.

Richard Marlow, director of Ultima Sports Ltd and driver of the Ultima GTR during the world record run said “Our new world record once again proves that the Ultima GTR is truly the fastest supercar currently available in the world today, and by a substantial margin. What’s more as with all factory spec Ultima’s the devastatingly fast world record breaking GTR is equally at home on the public roads as it’s an absolute pleasure to drive at normal road speeds thanks to the car’s user-friendly nature and smooth power banded engine. We are also currently installing a 640bhp engine into one of our other demonstrators, to be named the Ultima GTR640 in commemoration of all of our existing world records achieved with 640bhp. We look forward to the Stig taking on allcomers around the Top Gear test track in our demonstrator assuming of course that the BBC feel it is appropriate to give our British built sportscar the opportunity to humiliate their current lap record holder the Ferrari Enzo.”

The Ultima GTR used on the successful record attempt was fully road legal, fitted with road tyres and was driven to and from the test venue. Once again the world record was strictly conducted, overseen and verified by an official from Datron Technology who are acknowledged by the Guinness Book of Records and the motoring press as official timekeepers, using state of the art Microsat GPS equipment.
A submission has been sent to the Guinness Book of Records.

Ted Marlow commented “We are particularly delighted that we achieved two 9.8secs world record runs in a row for good measure. Also the data sheet shows that the full potential of the Ultima GTR at the 0-100mph-0 sprint still hasn’t been realized because if you take our fastest recorded 0-100mph time of 5.5secs (achieved during a successful 0-150mph world record run in September 2004 when track temperature was higher) and marry it to our fastest recorded 100mph to zero braking time of 3.6secs, then a low 9 secs 0-100mph-0 run is possible.That’s something to aim for another day.”

The GTR hasn't changed since launch in 1999.

SO lots of folks have "seen" the same car, just this one has a newer engine/transmission and getting better times. Dont' be so harsh
Back in 1999 anyone could have gone this route with custom engine and beaten the factory
