This gets from 190-250 faster than my car gets from 90-150.

Holy ****, I wonder what it would hit if he kept going, it was still climbing like no one's business at 250.

The GT is one of the coolest cars I have ever seen.

Designed in less than 2 years, kicks *** in every way save for lugage space and fuel economy. Under 200K new, though I suspect they will be much more valuable than that if they are not already.

The driving was not perfect, but then thats not an easy car to drive. Thats definitely not the stock gear box either, maybe he is not used to it yet?

I still think few things are more impressive than the twin turbo Toyota V8 powered Ultima GTR going from 0-211 in 1000m in 19 seconds.....I'd love to know how fast it would go all out.

You vid failed

For everyone else, type in "0-211" on YT....

And remember kids, 1000 meters = .6 of a mile.....I can only imagine if they let it go a mile!

I like how the first 4 gears are useless.

I'd like to see it with an extra gear. Holy ****, it looks like it would have no problem hitting 280mph, maybe all the way to 300mph.

I was just watching that GTR last night. I want one of those so bad, even if it only had a basic LS1 in it. Those things are monsters.

I like the GTR even in terms of looks. The too tall cockpit is the only thing thats a bit off to me. The overall lines are sweet.
