The road legal race car Ultima GTR went through fourteen months of research and development before being launched in 1999. This extensive R+D ensured the low-volume supercar delivered high levels of fit, finish and performance. The Ultima GTR is a supercar in every sense of the word, when coupled with the top spec engine available a maximum speed of over 200 miles per hour is possible. The GTR uses the chassis and suspension package previously road and race tested in Ultima's existing Sports model, the rest of the GTR required a comprehensive redesign.

Aerodynamic efficiency is of significant importance on a car that is capable of over 200mph. Special attention was centred around lengthening the rear of the car to help clean up the airflow and improve downforce. The GTR's developments were fully tested at MIRA (the Motor Industry Research Association) where the group was so impressed by the results that it was happy to have the Ultima GTR as the centre of its show display at the 2000 Autosport International show at the NEC in Birmingham.

The Ultima GTR can be bought as a turnkey supercar, however it is also available in component form, for assembly by the home enthusiast. Ultima took great care with the aesthetics of the GTR and tried to distance itself from any use of compromised styling. The
production car feel of the Ultima GTR is immediately apparent, from the specially moulded headlight housings and covers to the close panel fit and lack of any external body catches. Larger 18" wheels front and back help to fill the re-profiled wheelarches of the GTR while even items such as the purpose-made wing mirrors combine to create the complete picture.
