Default Ultima GTR-640! Fastest accelerating and decelerating production car





Previously regarded as the fastest, the top flight McLaren F1 has lost
its place to the Ultima's new record-breaking GTR 640. As a street
legal supercar, fitted with road tires and built to factory
specification, the 640 has reached 0-100-0 mph more than a second
faster then the mighty McLaren. During this run on the Bruntingthorpe
Proving Ground, the Ultima accelerated to 60mph in 2.8 seconds, hit
100 mph 3.0 seconds later, and then slowed to a standstill after only
9.8!
