UT Limited (Unique Toys) was a company which manufactured 1:18 scale model cars in the 1980s and 1990s, trading as UT Models. They were typically of good to high quality and were a bit more expensive than their direct competitors. The company closed at the end of the 1990s, but the essence of the brand is now associated with Gateway Global Ltd which produces models under the AUTOart brand. UT had a partnership of sorts with PMA but the brand never belonged to PMA. Famous UT brand models include the Porsche 993 series as well as the McLaren F1 series.
