Featured Video of the Month

In September 2016, Portuguese Unipower owner Rui Sanhudo took part in an historic hill-climb, the Rampa de Santa Luzia near Viana do Castelo north of Porto. The hillclimb runs from just outside the town and up to the beautiful Basílica de Santa Luzia, from where the panoramic view has been rated by the National Geographic Magazine as the third most beautiful in the World.

Featured Unipower GT of the Month

Chassis 766.2    1966  RHD

   

Built in early 1966, this was the first chassis built and sold, having been ordered on the 4th January at the launch of the Unipower GT marque. Originally correctly given chassis # 766.1 by the factory on its build records, this was subsequently changed to 766.2 on delivery. Ordered as a Competition GT version, this chassis was the subject, after its initial build, to a programme of development, including being the development car for the first Air-dam, before its first race in early 1967 driven by John 'Turner' Miles.

In 1968 the chassis was sold to Piers Weld-Forester who raced it at Club race meetings in the UK before he bought the manufacturing rights to the Unipower GT marque in late 1968.

During early 1969, the chassis was raced in the UK by a number of drivers, entered by Unipower Cars, so becoming a 'Works' entry, before in late 1969 was raced Internationally by the factory in the Nürburgring 500kms and Barcelona 12hrs.

Following its sale to two other owners, the chassis was bought by the Owners Club founder in mid-1976. Thereafter it have been raced in a number of Sports car and Historic races, taking many podium and Championship places along the way.  

The chassis is still in its original specification and race worthy condition. It will be on show at the London Concours in Central London on the 8th -10th June.
