Ultima Evolution Has Truly Evolved
The New Ultima Evolution Kit Boasts Outrageous Performance
Updated September 27, 2018
Although the Ultima Evolution is based on the same Lee Noble design as the GTR and Sports models, the newest incarnation has truly evolved as the name suggests. Everything from the aerodynamics to the weight to power ratio has been tweaked for major improvements over its predecessors from the relatively obscure British sports car maker.
The fact that Lee Noble influenced the final product is enough to recommend giving the Ultima Evolution a whirl. After all, Noble was the driving design force behind such supercars as the Ascori Ecosse, Rossion Q1, and numerous other models put out by his own manufacturing companies of Noble Automotive and Fenix Automotive.
Available as a build-your-own kit or as a turn-key project, the Ultima Evolution supercar is set to completely replace the now-retired GTR and will soon have a convertible option. It retains the same Le Mans Group C-inspired body shape of previous models, but Ultima has developed the chassis for superior safety and performance.
Beneath the hood lies a fuel-injected LS Chevrolet V8 engine with power levels ranging from 355 hp to 1034 hp paired with a six-speed manual Porsche gearbox that is equipped with a quick-shift cable change system. All that power comes in a package that weighs just 2,094 lbs, enabling the Ultima Evolution supercar to go from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.3 seconds with a top speed of 240 mph. The Ultima marketing team assures potential clients that speed records have and will continue to be broken by this new model described as “the quickest accelerating and decelerating supercar of all time and multiple world speed record holder.”
Ultima recognizes that its cars shouldn’t be all about speed – although that’s certainly a selling point; comfort and other features have their place, too. The interior sports plenty of high-quality leather with alcantara trim while entertainment can be had via the Alpine sound system. There are even gadgets purely for convenience, such as the latest style of an engine start button and rear parking sensors. And the Ultima Evolution Kit price? Orders for the kit are currently being taken at prices beginning at around $100K with an anticipated delivery time of this September.
