When 300km/hour is not enough, there are some ideas to create jet-powered aircraft using Shark design, so You could fly 400-500 km/hour according to used engine.

Price-induction jet looks nice for that purposes : 
At Take Off Power, you can get up to 255daN, consuming 80kg/h of fuel for the DGEN 380 and 330daN with 100kg/h fuel consumption for the DGEN 390.

of course - this kind of aircraft cannot be called Ultralight, although its empty weight could be  very similar

USA Recognize that tail? You've seen it twice before on designs that earned Special Light-Sport Aircraft approval: Interplane's Skyboy and FlyItalia's Sport Rider. Designer Jaro Dostal's signature is the shark fin vertical stabilizer. Skyboy is sold in the U.S. by LSA America. SportRider (MD-3 Rider in Europe) is not presently available in the USA. *** Now from the fertile mind of Dostal comes the Shark. It will be produced by Comp-Let, a producer of composite parts for many companies including Diamond, Aeropro, and FK Lightplanes. Jaro's design bureau is leading the development effort. "SportShark will fit LSA rules with a larger wing, simpler flaps, fixed landing gear and prop," declared Comp-Let. "We are finishing the aerodynamic design calculations (forces, structure, stability). Designers prepared a cockpit mockup. We have started to work on a fuselage model. The plan is to fly a prototype by spring 2008. Serial production will start gradually by summer." Shark is but one example of a new LSA as the industry continues its acceleration.
