Ultima GTR
British sports car manufacturer Ultima Sports has announced what it calls a new, worldwide, emissions-friendly engine option for fitment into the Ultima GTR and Ultima Can-Am. It was showed on the first weekend of may.

Green doesn’t seems to mean dull in Ultima, since the 7-litre V8 Chevrolet LS7 motor from the latest C6 Z06 Corvette, also available as a complete turnkey package in conjunction with Ultima’s OE engine suppliers American Speed, will provide the sufficient power to enjoy the car.

In the Z06 it cranks out 505bhp, but with an Ultima-built exhaust system it develops 565bhp and 520ft-lb torque. A change of camshafts delivers 650bhp, while the addition of a supercharger provides a very full-fat 800bhp. Remarkably, both the latter options still meet emissions standards.

Company boss Richard Marlow said: “This is a natural progression for us here at the factory as it enables us to tackle the emission stringent European market head-on with our sensational GTR and Can-Am models.

The LS7-equipped Can-Am model which we have built in left-hand drive format will shortly be on its way to Europe for promotional duties. It has already passed SVA and undergone a full testing and evaluation program by us here at the factory and is a lovely unit. Our Ultima-specific LS7 package has been fully developed for production in all respects and is now available for our customers to purchase.

The 800bhp supercharged option will be rather brisk, which I’m confident will enable us to notch up yet further world speed records for our marque in the future should we ever choose to do so.”
