From Ultima press: The Ultima Can-Am is a sensational convertible road car that boasts exactly the same league of world beating performance envelope as that of the Ultima GTR, but in an exhilarating wind in the hair experience.
The exciting Ultima Can-Am is the result of over 20 years of extensive research and development. At the heart of every new Ultima Can-Am convertible road car is the company's race-proven spaceframe chassis which, allied to purpose-built independent suspension and bespoke parts throughout, offers a level of handling and road-holding way beyond any conventional car.
Power is provided by a mid-mounted Chevrolet V8 engine mated to a Porsche transaxle. In standard 300bhp tune it's enough to propel the Can-Am from 0 - 60mph in under 4 seconds before posting a top speed which is best described as more than adequate! With the 600bhp and above engine option, it has been officially verified as the fastest supercar available anywhere in the world today exceeding the performance statistics of supercars such as the Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari Enzo and Mclaren F1.
The Can-Am has a full range of road car options available for fitment including a fully waterproof soft top roof which has been designed to remain watertight even at speeds exceeding 200mph, air conditioning, leather trim and sealed luggage compartments for continental touring. The Can-Am also has interchangeable front screen options.
The ultra clean look of the Can-Am and the faultless self-coloured gel coat bodywork has not been achieved through luck, but rather by design. The production car feel of the Ultima is immediately apparent, from the specially moulded headlight housings and covers to the immaculate panel fit and lack of any external body catches. Huge bespoke wheels front and back fill the arches declaring its performance potential. The sensational appearance of the car has been applauded by designers and connoisseurs alike.
