Information about Unipower

Unipower is a distinctive chapter in British automotive history, famed for its niche approach to car manufacturing and a philosophy rooted deeply in innovation and performance. Founded in the 1960s by Ernie Unger and Val Dare-Bryan, Unipower was born out of a passion for engineering excellence and a vision to craft vehicles that stood apart in both aesthetics and performance. The brand’s debut vehicle, the Unipower GT, launched in 1966, encapsulated this ethos. Designed by a team including Tim Powell and the legendary car designer Tony Underhill, the GT was a low-slung sports car with a fiberglass body and a rear-engine layout, making it a hit among enthusiasts for its handling and distinctive look.

Despite the initial acclaim, Unipower’s journey was short-lived, with production ceasing in the early 1970s after about 75 cars built. Today, the brand lives on primarily in the hearts of classic car collectors and enthusiasts. Although Unipower did not continue to produce new models or achieve sustained commercial success, its brief foray into the car world remains a testament to the spirit of British automotive ingenuity and the enduring allure of its limited-run masterpiece, the Unipower GT. The brand’s story is a poignant reminder of the challenges and triumphs of the automotive industry.
