Ultima Sports Ltd is a supercar manufacturer based in the UK, which is famous for its world record holding models: the Ultima GTR and Ultima Can-Am. A few hours ago the company has published on their official Facebook page that it is releasing an exciting new car named Ultima Evolution. The car itself will come in two variants – a coupe and a cabrio. The sad news is that these two versions will replace the ongoing GTR and Can-Am that are both currently discontinued.

As you can see from the photos below, the Evolution has kept the Le Mans Group C inspired body shape. Nonetheless, it is also obvious that the design has been improved and made more contemporary. The company says that the new supercar has been actually updated in every sense: from the finish, quality, safety, comfort to the handling and performance.

Under the hood, one finds the gasoline LS Chevrolet V8 engine, which, interestingly enough, is offered with more than fifteen different power level options. The output range starts at 350 hp for the base model and ends with the 1020 hp model.

The first production car is a coupe and it is depicted here. It is said that it carries the supercharged LS V8 1020 hp (750 kW) unit, which is also responsible for 1247 Nm (920 lb-ft) of torque. In fact, the Evolution has already been tested and has recorded a road legal 0-60 mph time of 2.3 seconds. The 0-100 mph sprint is covered in 4.9 seconds, while the top speed stands firm at 240 mph.

With this news we are actually awaiting for a new world record, right?
