Hello to all,

As said Derek, this ship seems to be Monza.

United European Car Carrier had several French built carcarriers from 1974 to 1981 :

Built at Le Havre :
Arnage 1974 later Estoril (picture of Arnage is here : http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=195694)
Mulsanne 1974 later Goodwood
Tertre Rouge 1976 later Donington
Hunaudières 1976 later Hockenheim

They were named (at time of launch) with name of sections of famous car race track of "24 hours of Le Mans".

 
Built at La Rochelle Pallice :
Monza 1972
Montlhéry 1982
Le Castellet 1981

Here are 2 pictures of Monza :
