The Ultima Evolution Coupe 1020 features a 6.8L (6,800 cc) supercharged Chevrolet LS V8 with a massive power output of 1020 hp (1034 PS; 761 kW) and an equally massive torque output of 920 ft·lb (1247 Nm). The car uses a Porsche-derived six-speed manual transaxle transmission. Weighing 2094 lb (950 kg), the car has a power-to-weight ratio of 487 hp per tonne.
The Ultima Evolution Coupe 1020 is touted to do 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds and have a top speed of around 240 mph (386 km/h) due to gearing limitations.
The Ultima Evolution Coupe 1020 is, obviously, a greatly improved form of the Ultima GTR 720 and builds on its defining performance traits: superb acceleration, top speed, and handling. The Evolution 1020 can reach 100 mph (161 km/h) faster than most cars and is capable of a top speed of 245 mph (395 km/h). Owing to its lightweight nature, the Evolution 1020's handling (1.325 Gs on average) and braking outshine those of most other cars in the game. Unlike most similarly-ranked cars, the Evolution 1020 doesn't actually suffer a lot of wheelspin, and is thus slightly easier to control.
The Evolution Coupe 1020 beats the Koenigsegg One:1 on tracks that do not have an emphasis on top speed.
