couldn't get the search to work today, so we'll take a stab at not reposting

Driven by Ultima Director, Richard Marlow, the factory built Ultima GTR set a new world record time of 10.3 seconds to achieve 0-100mph-0 smashing the previous record by half a second. The British built super car stormed from 0-60mph in 2.8 secs and reached 100mph from standstill in an incredible 5.9 secs before coming back to rest a mere 4.4 secs later. The 100mph to zero braking time not including the drivers reaction time was just 3.97secs.

Wow, I wasn't expecting to see a carbed Chevy V8 in there. Nice.

...and actually they beat their own best time. It is down to 9.8 seconds now.

I saw one of these in Denver. It was broken down in the left hand turn lane in a major intersection. hahahaha.
