The Age Ultranova is Age's Special Machine featured in Ridge Racer 6 and 7.
Its strength lies on its extreme rates of Ultimate Charge. In Ridge Racer 6, it is possible for one to collect a full tank of boost in a single Ultimate Charge. Ridge Racer 7 employs a similar system, although the charge rate is slightly lessened for balance reasons. The cost of this is one among the weakest Normal Charge rates among any in-game vehicle. This means the Ultranova is very good on short, tight courses which require several Ultimate Charges; although in the hands of a good driver, it can prove a challenge on other tracks.
Age won 2004's Ridge World Grand Prix, and they decided to make a replica of the winning car. As of 2005, it was still a prototype, but according to Age engineer Francois Juvet, "it's pretty darn close."
The Ultranova takes design elements from the "Mach 5" from the television series "Speed Racer".
