The Ultima RS is ready to hit the road soon

As we all knew, that in July last year, one of the British (road-legal version) racing car makers, Ultima Sports launched its latest 'mechanical beast' named Ultima RS. No half-hearted, the Hinckley-based company created this supercar with remarkable acceleration ability from rest to 100 kph only in 2.3 seconds.

What is the secret? This capability could be happened because the supercar uses a Chevrolet V8 LT5 engine that is capable of spewing maximum power up to 1,200hp, where all the power is then channeled to its rear wheels, through the Porsche-made 6-speed manual transmission system.

But don't expect any automatic transmission options would applied on this beast, especially the newer variants developed by Porsche, the Porsche Doppel Kupplungs getriebe (PDK) or Porsche Double-Clutch Transmission. According to Ultima Sports, due to the automatic transmission is not suitable to represent the Ultima RS power.
Ultima RS also offers a variety of luxury for the supercar that is comfortable when driving on public roads. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2AFO5UD)
"The PDK system seen in many new Porsche cars is currently incompatible with the Ultima ethos, which is primarily designed to maximize driver involvement and to provide a Le Mans racing-style sensation experience on the roads," said Ultima Sports.

The designing and building with aerodynamic levels of race cars is almost no different even about the weight. Most of the body that already utilizes carbon fiber material so as to be able to cut the weight to the level of downforce and the best drag coefficient.
