Ultima has revealed its latest sports car, the Evolution. Available in both coupé and convertible forms, the newest Ultima offers up to 1020bhp in its most powerful form.
Acting as a replacement for the Ultima GTR and Ultima Can-Am models, the Evolution is already on sale with the first customer deliveries planned for September
While keeping Ultima’s Le Mans-inspired styling, the British firm says the Evolution gets new LED lights, lightweight forged alloy wheels, an infotainment system with satellite navigation and Bluetooth, and an improved chassis.
Power for the Evolution comes from a Chevrolet V8 LS engine, with outputs ranging from 350bhp up to 1020bhp. In total, 15 different power outputs are offered.
In its most extreme form, weighing just 950kg and with 1020bhp coming from a 6.8-litre supercharged V8, Ultima says the Evolution can reach 60mph in 2.3sec and 100mph in 4.9sec, while going on to a top speed of over 240mph. Power is channelled through a Porsche-sourced six-speed manual gearbox.
