The power to weight equation is the not-so-secret sauce behind some of the quickest supercars on the road. Lots of power and very little weight often means you are hitting some pretty good 0-60mph and quarter mile times. The British have just smacked down ALL of the pretentious supercars running around Hollywood with the Ultima Evolution.
The current “fastest accelerating” car
is was the Ferrari LaFerrari which gets to 60mph in 2.6 seconds with a 9.7 second/149mph 1/4 mile. The Ultima Evolution gets to 60mph in an amazing 2.3 seconds with a 9.2 second/156mph 1/4 mile. That is simply insane. Read on for more details and pictures.
