Featured Unipower GT
Chassis 1266.8 1966 RHD
Built in late 1966, this chassis was displayed on the UPD stand at the Racing Car Show in January 1967 fitted with a 998cc Cooper engine. Sold off the stand to Count Giovanni Volpi, the car has lived all its life in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
Whilst built as a road car, it never the less competed in hill-climbs in Switzerland for a while, where it's initial Red paint would be replaced by white with a blue stripe down its centre. Wide wheel arches and the oft fitted wide rear clamshell were fitted along with a bag fuel tank along with a Monza fuel filler on the front wing.
The car has been undergoing a true ground up restoration for a while now, recent pictures showing a total strip down with all the paint taken back to the bare resin coat.
Chassis 766.2 Competition GT 1966 RHD
Built in very early 1966, the ex-Works raced chassis was photographed recently as part of a Members Car Collection feature for the Ferrari Owners Club of Great Britain's magazine.
Also in the picture are a Ferrari 458 Spider and a very rare bespoke Jaguar Project 7.

Featured Unipower GT Video
( * Demute on video for sound track)
In 2013/14 chassis # 766.2 had undergone its first comprehensive strip down and rebuild for the first time since it was last raced by the factory team in 1969.
This video is of the shakedown test carried out in April 2014 (track-day rules applied on overtaking) at the famous Goodwood race track in Sussex, England driven by its owner Gerry Hulford. The Jaguar on track had a 5ltr supercharged engine of 500hp and the Aston was the latest Vantage V8 at the time.
The car was running a new setup and tyres, so the on-track pace was exploratory to determine if all was well with the car's mechanicals. All was well !. The latest changes on its setup had improved its handling considerably. These settings and the history of this very successful race car are published in the new Book on the history of the Unipower GT marque which can be purchased through the Shop on this website.
