Throw some sponsor stickers and some war paint on and that thing would look like a modern Group C car.
I want one.

Love it. My favorite part from the FAQ:
"Is there a PDK option?
No, the Ultima RS is a real driver’s car and therefore is only available with a six speed manual shift gearbox and a clutch pedal."
I've seen an Ultima GTR in person, and unfortunately they do still look very kit car in person. Perhaps fit and finish is a bit improved with this model.
Side note: I decided to have a quick look at how old the GTR is. Turns out the first one rolled out in 1983, so 36 years ago now. There's just something timeless about the shape and they keep making little tweaks and updates to keep it from looking stale, at least to my eyes.
As for the people complaining about the fit and finish, it's a trackday special. You're going to get it scratched up, possibly bust body panels, and repaired a few times if you're really doing track events all the time anyway. I don't do track events anymore for financial reasons but when I did, pretty much every dedicated track car had some wonky fit and finish, regardless of what it looked like when it was new. It just kind of goes with the mission and purpose of these cars. If that's not what you're looking for then there's plenty of other alternatives for ten times as much money that have significantly better fit and finish and interior appointments.
