Frontviewshot On June 13, Marcos released its new TSO GT2, at London’s Canary wharf Autoexpo. This light sports car (1150kg) receives a GM 5.7 V8 engine delivering up to 475bhp. A dreadful power-to-weight ratio indeed! Thus, the new Marcos accelerates to 60mph in 4 seconds, to 100mph in 9 second and hits a top speed of 185mph, on track needless to say. Thanks to its 50/50 weight ratio, Marcos claims it remains quite easy to drive. Besides, with its impressive torque, it can accelerate from 50 to 70mph in… 2 seconds!
The customer can choose between two packages:

  • Sports Package, including the 475bhp V8, sports suspensions and racing brakes.
  • Tourer Package, with a softer suspension and comfort fittings.

Prices start at £49,995. This is not so costly for a car that can humiliate a TVR Tuscan, a Porsche 911 or a Ferrari F430.
