WELCOME TO THE ULTIMA EVOLUTION BUILD DIARY FOR GERARD ALMON
The Ultima GTR and Evolution cars from Ultima Sports in the UK have quite a history, with many enthusiast around the globe building their own ultimate race car for the road. I could not find any resources for car enthusiast in South Africa wanting to build an Ultima, so I decided that I will create my own build diary, hopefully helping other Ultima builders in South Africa and abroad by sharing my experience.
This is what I am building. Picture courtesy of Ultima Sports UK. Waiting time is usually 24 weeks from date of order, so that means we were looking at mid-December 2017 if there were no unforeseen delays. Unfortunately there were some delays, but everything in the first order was successfully delivered in May 2018.
Below the latest progress photo of my car. The aim was to fire up the engine for the 1st time before 2020. Many people say that any project taking longer than three years will never complete, so the race is on to ensure everything gets finished before then.
