Behold: the Ultima RS – a street legal flyweight Le Mans prototype supercar available in various levels of trim from spartan to custom luxury and three engine configurations, from an impressive normally-aspirated 480bhp LT1 to a staggering 1,200bhp supercharged LT5.

0-100km/h takes 2.3 seconds, the top speed is 402km/h and the entry-level configuration will cost €107,000.

Obligatory COVID-19 tie-in: While entirely unconnected with the current pandemic, ’Ultima RS’ does have the same number of characters as ‘SARS-CoV-2’ if you leave out the hyphens.

    I like it. Especially side on. Wonder what the full luxe interior looks like also – best coronavirus tie in of the day!

    I like the lines, but the interior is a bit sparse.

    Probably a non sequitur, but out of curiosity, those of you who have driven on both sides of the road, which do you prefer? I learned in Ireland, and got some rally driving training, but was taught defensive and offensive driving on the other side of the road. I will never be a racer, but I like to think I can handle a car at speed if needed. But I have found that trained responses, maybe muscle memory, still has a place.To this day, I reach for the gear stick with my left hand. One reason I will never be a good racer.

    And I really do not like automatics!

    [Note, the day my daughter was born, I got a whole new level of respect for speed limits, in case anyone is worried]
