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.....

Not a very good lookin car but what the heck. At that speed no one will notice it anyway. Nevertheless, its an awesome machine and 5 secs faster than the koenigggggsegggggg is

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.
