Ultima Sports Ltd. has released more details surrounding its most capable Ultima to date — the RS. This time around, the British supercar manufacturer’s Le Mans-inspired racer features more power, aerodynamics and weight-reduction. Tested at HORIBA MIRA’s full-scale aerodynamic wind tunnel, the Ultima RS features carbon fiber side splitters, a front splitter, vortex generators, a roof scoop, and a large GT wing.
Depending on the option, the Ultima starts at just 2,050 pounds in weight, and is powered by either a 480bhp LT1, a 650bhp LT4, or 800bhp supercharged LT5 V8 Chevrolet engine (tuneable to 1200bhp). The most impressive things is that the Ultima RS remains a street legal supercar. Fitted with a Porsche six-speed manual transaxle gearbox and an anodized-black machined billet quick shifter cable change system, the RS can hit a 0-60 mph time in 2.3 seconds.
Those interested can look to pay $120,000 USD for the fully-loaded version. Head over to Ultima Sports Ltd. for the full spec sheet.
