Ultima Sports

Ultima Sports

Production Years: 1992-2000

The Ultima Sports has been superseded by the Ultima GTR and is no longer

produced. Spare parts are available for this model.

Launched in 1992, the Sports can trace its roots back to the original Ultima Mk1 of 1984, but was the first in-house creation for the current Ultima Sports operation which has transformed the marque into the global sensation it has become. The Sports took what was previously a track focused race car and completely redeveloped it. The result was a car that was far easier to assemble, benefitted from vastly improved fit and finish, and was redesigned under the skin to create a machine that, while still hugely effective on track, could now be used with ease on the road. It was the start of the Ultima story as we know it.
