New Uprated Ultima Chassis Released


We are proud to announce today’s release of a new uprated and improved chassis for the Ultima GTR and Ultima Can-Am. The improvements focus on giving the Ultima increased torsional rigidity and occupant safety to market leading standards without compromising drivability and ease of build.

This new chassis replaces the older version which is now discontinued. Prices remain the same as before.

Richard and Ted Marlow commented-
“The above announcement is part of our continual development process to keep the Ultima at the forefront of our market. The old chassis is still absolutely sound in all areas as we have already proved with record breaking performance figures but we have now significantly improved the torsional rigidity and safety to take the Ultima to a new level.
The new GTR chassis features a larger diameter fully welded roll cage as standard rather than the bolt on rearward braced version and the rear bulkhead will be fabricated in aluminium rather than the GRP. Also incorporated is the introduction of new twin luggage containers designed as structural members that will increase cockpit rigidity. Keen Ultima observers and owners will be able to spot the numerous differences compared to the old chassis.
We have tested the torsional rigidity of the new design extensively on our rig here at the Ultima factory and we are totally confident that this new chassis design is at the very forefront of our market segment.
The changes will not be available as a retrofit item to the old style chassis but all customers with currently pending new chassis orders will receive this new design of chassis.”

The uprated Can-Am chassis design is currently a work in progress along similar lines.

The new improved Ultima GTR and Ultima Can-Am chassis will be on display on our stand at the forthcoming National UK Kit Car Show at Stoneleigh on the 5th and 6th of May. We look forward to seeing some of you there.
