Default ULTIMA GTR destroys TOP GEARS quickest

Hey all,

The Bristish Ultima GTR street legal, not only breaks the 0-100-0mph record but whacks the Koenigsegg CXX (with the spoiler) off the Top gear track by a massive 5 secs, but yea it wasnt driven by the stig as TG refused to test the GTR720.

Check it out.....

and also by the sound of the engine, it is clear that the driver is short shifting.
Maybe he is scared. ?

Looks Ugly, but the performance is beautiful,
5 Sec is like 5 lightyears in terms of laptimes.

My nehpew loves the Ultima. It's looks it's speed and it's cost. It is a lot cheaper than it's nearest competition and you can get it in kit form.
