Ultima Spyder

Ultima Spyder

The first Ultima was built in 1986 and entered the British Kit Car Championship, which it won twice. By 1992 the car had been so finely honed in MkIII guise that it made sense for Ultima to offer it as a road car for track day/autocross use. The inspiration for the Ultima was Group C2 racing cars of the 1980s, used at events like Le Mans 24 hours. In 1993, once the MkIV Ultima was thoroughly proven, it was re-bodied with the new Spyder roadster. The car was mid-engined, as per all Ultimas, and ran a tubular steel perimeter chassis with integral roll bar and composite bodywork. Double wishbone suspension was fitted at either end, along with a low-scared steering rack and 12-inch (305mm) four-wheel AP racing vented discs. Though various engine options were available, the one to go for was the small-block ('bevy. This one has Chevy's H.O. unit, with a Porsche 911 transaxle.
