Launched in 1999, the Ultima GTR was dubbed the ‘quickest accelerating and decelerating supercar of all time’, with official performance records that humbled every mainstream car on the planet bar none - Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari Enzo and McLaren F1; none could match the GTR’s plethora of world speed acceleration and deceleration records, and when independently timed around the Top Gear test track, was found to be a blistering 6.2 seconds per-lap faster than the £450,000 Ferrari Enzo and four seconds per- lap faster than the £1,500,000 Bugatti Veyron SS. Now universally appreciated as a true supercar, not much can come close to the value for money these exceptional vehicles offer in today’s market. What makes this particular example rather special is that, although official production of the GTR ceased in 2018, this car was registered just last year in 2022. The build of DK22 CKX was first started by the current owner’s late father in 1998. A surgeon by trade, but an equally skilled mechanic, he undertook much of the initial build, but eventually handed the car over to Ultima to fit the body in 2004. Most of the build activity was in batches until 2010, with little work completed until his son took over the project in 2021. Shortly after the car passed into our vendor’s ownership, it was entrusted to respected Ultima specialists and race team MacG Racing. MacG collected the car in its project form and undertook an extensive 100-hour completion project, including the rear clam, windows, seat belts, air conditioning, geo setup, a full overhaul of the previous work completed, IVA testing and registration. The heart of this fabulous GTR is the American 5.7-litre V8 Chevy producing 350bhp mated to a Porsche G50 tried and proven gearbox. In terms of safety, a pair of 5-point harnesses were fitted and an RAC-specification roll cage. Overall, this package has been professionally built to a very high-specification and it shows. This must be one of the last registered GTRs registered being a 2022 plate, and it’s finished in a striking shade of yellow with a Black Alcantara interior and is totally pin sharp. Included with the vehicle is a comprehensive history file containing the IVA Test Certificate with accompanying documentation, a large number of invoices including one for c.£8,000 for the engine from American Speed, as well as a number from the completion work by MacG Racing. This is a rare opportunity to join the small club of Ultima owners who know exactly how good these versatile little supercars actually are. One of the last GTRs to be built, with the final build and assembly by Ultima specialists, MacG Racing. More Details Lot 752 Bid On Lot 752
