Connecting an external GPU via ultrabay pci-express slot Lenovo Y500

Is there a possible way to connect an external GPU (for example GTX 680) via ultrabay pci-express slot? If you put together a cable that connects these two is it possible? Like on some laptops expresscard slot is used to connect external GPUs but it lacks the speed pci-express has.
