Quasar Unipower film car survives in France

The Quasar Unipower seen in the French movie 'Elle boit pas, elle fume pas, elle drague pas, mais... elle cause!' driven by the late Mireille Darc (film footage here), appears to survive in great shape in Toulouse, France. 

A number of pictures of the car were posted recently by French garage 'Old Cars City' which did some maintenance work on it, adding: "The owner has had it for a long time, it's part of a collection of over 30 unlikely cars." Apart from the French cult movie, the car with plates '610-VA 75' was seen in a few publications in the period as well.

  1. Hi,
    Sorry, the Quasar-Unipower surviving near Toulouse is not the car used in the Audiard Movie.
    It is the first car build by Unipower and has been the own car of Quasar Khanh.
    This car have some distinctive details with the other cars produced like the handle, seats and other things.
    The car in the film is known to have disappeared in February 1970 shortly after filming. I have found seven surviving Quasar-Unipower but this one is not on the list.
