The UVA Montage M6 GTR was a kit car produced between 1984 and 1989.

The car started life as a Volkswagen Beetle based kit offered in America called the Manta Montage. The kit was based on the McLaren M6. UVA imported the kits and sold them to the UK market, which wasn't ready for a VW Beetle based super car replica. 

Around 1986 saw UVA rework the Montage, getting rid of the VW Beetle chassis and creating its own custom chassis with central monocoque. This enabled V8 power courtesy of the Rover V8. 

Common fitment to go with the Rover V8 was a 5 speed Renault transaxle from the Renault 27. Production halted when UVA ceased trading around 1990.
