UMM Alter II is a Portuguese automobile produced by UMM from 1986-1994.
UMM Alter II Phase I
In 1986 the Alter II was released by the Portuguese automobile manufacturer União Metalo-Mecânica (UMM). It featured a new 4-speed manual gearbox, a new transfer case and a new suspension. The engine remained the same 2.5-litre diesel engine which developed 76 PS. Although it was a new model it was very similar to the previous one and very difficult to distinguish.
UMM Alter II Phase II
In 1987 a new facelift was made. Alongside with the 2.5-litre naturally aspirated diesel engine, it was available a new 2.5-litre Turbo Intercooler engine, new 5-speed manual gearbox, ventilated disk brakes in the front axle, power steering and a MOMO (company) racing steering wheel.
Some of the last models featured a new steering wheel that came from the Peugeot 405.
UMM Alter II Phase III
1993 saw another facelift. A redesigned dashboard was available, much more modern than the previous ones. Some of the electrical problems were also solved. It had some new suspension adjustments.
In 1996 UMM stops building the Alter II to private customers.
