last resort

Leicester ( UK), April 8, 2015

It seems as if the hunt for absurd acceleration records reopened. Blame the British sports car maker Ultima or better its newest product called Ultima evolution. For all non - hardcore enthusiasts: Ultima has been building for 15 years now, the models GT-R and Can-Am. You are the Le Mans Group C cars modeled and really fast. That the two vehicles are now being replaced by something called " evolution", not necessarily indicate a more leisurely pace. How uncomfortable things get, you have as a last - customer, however, largely in their own hands. The evolution does, in fact equal to 15 levels. Common to all is a Chevrolet LS V8 engine.

Faster than a Bugatti Veyron

Let's go with the equivalent of almost 52,000 euros for the 350-hp version. You need to configure even though. Who ?? For understandable reasons ?? rather can build, pay over 90,000 euros. More spectacular it is but if you the top model of evolution-series leads to heart. Finally, his 6.8-liter supercharged V8 delivers a powerful 1,033 hp and 1,247 Nm. Given a vehicle weight of 950 kilos does this quite ambitious. The price of the equivalent of 130,000 euros also seems competitive. We note: The Ultima Evolution is half the weight of a Bugatti Veyron and costs about one-tenth. Even with the performance he holds with neat. Despite rear-wheel drive, manual transmission and the absence of most electronic helpers. According Ultima evolution flies in 2.3 seconds to 60 mph (96 km / h), the 160 km / h mark is perforated with 4.9 seconds to 240 pass just 8.9 seconds. The quarter-mile eats the Evo in 9.2 seconds at just over 250 km / h, and it creates zero-160-km / h 8.8 seconds to zero ?? one second faster than the Veyron. Vin Diesel and the Fast & Furious colleagues could therefore probably also friends with the British flounder.

Navi and Rear View Camera

Only at the maximum speed of 386 km / h they would compromise over the most expensive VW Hennessey Venom GT or make. After all, there is a choice between a coupe and a convertible-like Speedster. Under the sparse sheet, the Ultima has evolved considerably over the years. In order to prevent the tires a sudden 1,033-horsepower die as the inevitably conveys a tree ward, evolution is a " fundamentally improved chassis design " on the road, which will include the stiffest in the segment. Even more crazed than the performance of Ultima evolution is the fact that you can get it with Infotainment system, navigation, Bluetooth, rearview camera and heated windscreen. Fairly " pure " effect interior but still. For this evolution is also much cheaper than comparable fast supercar. Whether it will adorn so many nursery walls like a Bugatti Veyron, is another question . (sw)
