Ultima Sports Ltd. is a British car manufacturer founded in 1992 by Ted Marlow and Richard Marlow. The company is headquartered in Hinckley, Leicestershire, England, and specializes in producing high-performance sports cars that are designed for track use as well as road driving.
Ultima’s early models were based on the design of the Group C racing cars that were popular in the 1980s and 1990s. These cars were known for their lightweight construction, aerodynamic styling, and powerful engines, and quickly gained a reputation for being some of the fastest and most exciting sports cars on the market.
Ultima is best known for its flagship model, the Ultima GTR, which was first introduced in 1999. The GTR is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive supercar that can be configured with a range of high-performance engines, including a Chevrolet V8 that can produce over 1,000 horsepower. The car is known for its exceptional speed and handling, and has set several world records for track performance.
In addition to the GTR, Ultima also produces the Ultima Evolution, which is an updated version of the GTR that features a redesigned chassis, improved aerodynamics, and other performance enhancements. The company also offers a range of customization options, allowing customers to create a bespoke sports car that meets their specific needs and preferences.
Looking to the future, Ultima is focused on continuing to innovate and push the limits of what is possible with high-performance sports cars. The company is constantly developing new technologies and techniques to improve the performance and reliability of its cars, and is committed to producing vehicles that are not only fast and exciting to drive, but also safe and practical for everyday use.
Ultima has a small but dedicated following of enthusiasts and racing fans who appreciate the company’s commitment to quality and performance. While the company is unlikely to become a mass-market automaker, its unique position in the automotive industry as a maker of high-performance sports cars means that it is likely to continue to attract customers who are looking for something truly exceptional.
