Here comes round 2!
1997 Ursula R1 700
The R1 GT is Ursula’s first GT ever produced. Launched in 1992 and built until 1998, the car was one of the major forces of the market in the 90s, and it was designed to compete in the high-end GT market at that time. Initially the grand tourer was offered in several engines including a 270 PS 3.6 inline-6, 330 PS 4.8 liter V8 and later, a turbocharged 4.5 liter V8 that produced a whopping 400 PS.
In 1996 Ursula have finally released a new facelift model of the R1. Both the 6 cylinder and the turbo V8 was scrapped in favor of an 460 PS 5.5 liter V12 model, and the new V12, designated as the R1 700, is positioned as the new top-level model of the R1. A small wing was fitted to differentiate against it’s lower-end models.
Thanks to it’s immense power and standard AWD, the car could accelerate to 100 km/h from standstill in 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 299 km/h, even beating supercars of that era. Unlike the lower-end models the R1 700 has ESC as an option for more traction control. Despite its capabilities, the R1 700’s launch was unfortunately met with the Asian financial crisis and was therefore halted production after a year and only 1,200 units of the R1 700 were sold in total.
History aside, the car is free to everyone to modify at your own will, whether you want it to be a Le Mans race car, posh luxury cruiser or a mad offroader with an turboed V16. Just don’t make it too crazy enough that even an alien spaceship could mistook it as one of theirs.
