The McLaren inspired UVA M6GTR started life as the Montage, manufactured by Manta Cars of California. From 1982 to 1985 UVA were the sole UKagent for this car, the photo above show the UVA demonstrator in 1982 when the imported kit was being marketed as the "UVA Montage". The kit at this time costs £5384 and was primarily aimed at VW Beetle power although other engines could be fitted.
UVA then developed the car further and relaunched it in 1985 as the UVA M6GTR. The choice of suitable engines now included Mazda rotary units up to Rover V8s.
The car was a 2 seater mid engined sports car. No single donor was used. All parts were supplied new by UVA with the exception of the engine, gearbox, wheels and tyres.
The M6GTR was the dearest of the kits produced by UVA and was aimed at the high end of the kit car market.More photos of the UVA M6GTR can be found at www.uvam6gtr.com. This site also has listed for sale a UVA M6GTR Chassis and Bodykit along with Body moulds and Chassi jigs!
