Believe it or not, UT is still around. Dealers can still order some UT products. However, what's available are all old stocks. As for their website, sadly, some company decide to capitalize on UT's fame by taking over the site.

GGL did not really kill UT, after all, they own UT since day one. Since Autoart quickly captured the heart of so many collectors so quickly, I would imagine that GGL feels there is no point to continue spend money on UT anymore. On top of which, there are plenty of legal issues to deal with for UT to continue to do what they have been doing. Instead, GGL let UT to fade away slowly. Think of it this way, if UT survives, would they be as spectacular as 4, 5, or 6 years ago? Even if GGL improved UT product lines, the price would not stick around in 24.99 range anyways. I would imagine the price for a UT product (if GGL continue to invest in it) today would cost somewhere along the line of 35 to 40 dollars each.

Still, I do miss some of the subjects they turned into 1:18 though. We can really use some high quality Mclaren F1 GTRs, Porsche 911 GT1, and more. Maybe we will see them in the future? Only time can tell.

Happy Collecting!

Question...if dealers can still order old stocks of UT's, how come they don't? Is it that there isn't enough demand for what IS left, or is it that they're harder to get?

Check out eBay. There are still some UT models available there with absolutely no interest from any bidder. Most of what's left are cars such as BMW 3 series, Porsche Carreras, 2K Corvettes, Z3s, and so forth. Either people have them already or they are not as desirable as other UT models. All of the more desirable pieces have been long gone.

Thanks all. I wouldn't say my info is indeed informative. More or less, it's just my opinion.

so I can get my local dealer to order in a Mclaren F1 GTR or a Impala SS?
Not exactly..

GGL still sells UT products. However, whatever they are selling is whatever they have left. No more new production. Plus, I don't think GGL can make Mclaren F1 GTRs anymore.
