Never heard of a Specialized Ultimate, and don't know what they cost. But at this spec, it would have been the Pro, at $2799 retail, according to Bikepedia. In the STX/LX spec the 4.0 originally came in it would have been $1150 according to same site. The frames were the same. From looking at the cheaper bikes on there, you can safely assume that the $=£ there abouts, no need for exchange rates. I don't think they can possibly have been cheaper
Don't know about the pricing for other years, but with my 95 brochure, I have the 95 price list. The WCF frame from that year isn't listed by itself (the only ones that are, are: Axis TT frame and fork, Dual Response Pro frame and fork, Dual Response frame and fork, and Vertex TA frame & fork - they are listed in decreasing order of price).
The WCF is listed as a complete bike at £1099.00 - that looks to be largely XT equipped (although gripshift listed as the shifters).
I don't know what changed from 95 to 96 (my 96 brochure only goes as high as the Apex - they must have had more than one brochure that year).
