Ultima Sports Ltd has pushed the Ultima legacy to its highest point ever with the launch of the new Ultima RS. This new flagship model is a supercar that’s overwhelmingly capable, delivering the fastest, most sophisticated, stylish and most advanced performance package to date. The Ultima RS is the crowning glory of 35 years of successful Ultima history and the finest expression of Ultima’s core DNA.
The commandingly aggressive stance with its muscular and timeless Group C Le Mans inspired lines to the extensive use of carbon fibre, the new Ultima RS was designed with one purpose in mind: performance. From the stunningly crafted roof scoop, carbon-fibre side splitters and sculpted front splitter which both feature intelligently integrated vortex generators, to the new swan neck top mounted full width carbon fibre rear wing option – each is meticulously crafted to reduce weight. Their shapes are every bit as functional as they are stunning and each has been honed to perfection as a result of extensive testing in MIRA’s full size wind tunnel.
Unfiltered and instinctive. At its heart can be found the latest Chevrolet V8 LT euro 6 compliant direct fuel injection powerplant options - ranging from the 480bhp LT1, 650bhp LT4 and 800bhp supercharged LT5 (as seen in the factory demo car). Finally, the new supercharged LT5 powerplant can be further tuned to a hypercar power capability of up to a staggering 1200bhp. Vitally, the chassis and controls communicate so vividly with the driver that you can truly exploit the extraordinary performance potential.
In terms of the design, the Ultima RS has been focused on increasing downforce and aerodynamic performance as well as increasing cooling and airflow. This can be seen in the striking design and in the extensive range of new aerodynamic elements such as the integrated chassis-mounted front splitter, front dive planes, quad wheel arch vents, vortex generators, NACA ducts, aggressive side scoops and large diffuser at the rear.
Extra cooling for the powertrain and brakes is realised by means of the additional air channels in the nose, rear fenders and roof. The design of the front canopy reduces the frontal area to a minimum and also adds a lower co-efficient of drag, at the same time controlling air flow over the leading edge and maintaining a boundary layer over most surfaces. All of these factors contribute towards providing the Ultima RS with a handling balance and finesse never witnessed before. Total downforce and the ability to shift the aerodynamic balance front or rear are the guiding principles. These elements create the optimal dynamic attributes to produce the ultimate driver’s car.
The new Ultima RS has the overall performance capability to surpass all previous world-beating track times and performance statistics set by the previous generation Ultima cars. In celebrated Ultima tradition the RS has the potential to outrun every other road going hypercar on the planet, a clean sweep of every production road car world speed record is not a pipe dream with the formidable Ultima RS.
The Ultima RS was added in the British Tour Season Update as a mid Class S car with following stats:
- Stock rank: 3,483 ( 1)
- rank: 3,637
- rank: 3,814 ( 40)
- rank: 4,002 ( 45)
- rank: 4,197 ( 60)
- rank: 4,423 ( 70)
- rank: 4,644 ( 85)
The Ultima RS has a good top speed, decent acceleration and nitro efficiency. Similar to to the Hennessey Venom F5, it possesses excellent drifting, very high drifting speed and is very "floaty". However it has physics issues which may impede perfomance.
The Ultima RS must be unlocked with a key, initially obtainable only through its Special Event; this requires the player to complete all 400 conditions in the Special Event, which requires the RS to be starred up to at least , the McLaren P1™ to be starred up to at least , and the remaining featured cars of the British Tour Season to be starred up to at least .
Blueprints for the Ultima RS can be obtained at random during the Passport Events held during the British Tour Season, as well as from a limited-time pack with it as the featured car, which was available for the duration of the RS's Special Event. Up to 40 blueprints are also guaranteed if the player participates in its Special Event.
Outside of its Special Events, there are 1 available for free in its Legend Pass and additional 5 via an in-app purchase.
The Ultima RS was added in the 2022 Lunar New Year Update as a high Class S car with following stats:
The Ultima RS is a hybrid Festival car. Tested at 5555 upgrades, it has good handling, good drifting, and mid-tier nitro efficiency. The Ultima RS has been shown to have excellent acceleration (around the same as the Lamborghini Centenario but significantly behind the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+), based on tests performed by A8 YouTuber Cars On!. The Ultima RS has a high total top speed and a normal raw top speed (TS without nitro) at full-PRO.
The Ultima RS is projected to be a new quasi-king of the game. It's not a perfect king, and it is certainly outclassed by the Lamborghini Centenario, Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+, Pininfarina Battista, Bugatti Bolide, and Koenigsegg Jesko, all of which are unofficially regarded as "Tier 1" cars. With that being said, it seems to be able to hold its own against the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37, Bugatti Divo, Bugatti La Voiture Noire, Bugatti Centodieci, and McLaren Senna, all of which are unofficially regarded as "Tier 2" cars. That probably makes the Ultima RS another Tier 2 car overall. The Ultima RS shares characteristics between both "accelerator" types (like the Divo) and "support" types (like the Senna).
Price & availability
The Ultima RS is obtainable by reaching Tier 15 or Tier 1 of the Premium Pass in its Festival.
