It is then by this observation that the latest car to lap the famous test track is nothing short of phenomenal, beating out the previous lap record holder - the Koenigsegg CCX - by more than an incredible four and a half seconds.

The car in question is the V8 powered Ultima GTR720 which was driven to the test track in full street trim to post a lap time of 1:12.8 - to put that into perspective, at this rate it would lap the Ferrari Enzo every 12 laps.
