2006 Marcos TSO GT2

MARCOS ENGINEERING DEBUTS THE 'TSO GT2' SPORTSCAR

New Lightweight 475 Horsepower V8 Coupe Únveiled at London Motorexpo London, England, 13 h June 2005 – Marcos Engineering Limited is pleased to announce the new Marcos TSO GT2 coupe is making its world debut today at London's Canary Wharf Motorexpo. The GT2 is a race bred Grand Tourer that delivers superb handling and stunning performance. Customers can choose from a Sports Package that offers sports suspension, racing brakes and an awe inspiring 475 horsepower, or a Touring Package that includes softer suspension and additional touring features. Pricing for the GT2 starts at just £49,995.

The design team was driven to capture styling cues from Marcos' 45-year British motorsport heritage. This includes Sir Jackie Stewarts first win in 1961 - in the Marcos Gullwing coupe, numerous finishes at LeMans and the nineties British GT championship race car - the famed LM600. This design effort has produced a distinctly British sports car with classic lines and a stunning exhaust note.

The Marcos motorsport bloodline is also visible in the GT2's impressive test track performance. Weighing just 1150 kg, the GT2 can accelerate to 60 mph in 4 seconds and to 100 mph in 9 seconds with a top speed of 185 mph. The GT2 also performs superbly on the open road. Its 50/50 weight distribution inspires driving confidence and its broad torque curve yields effortless overtaking – accelerating from 50 to 70 mph in only 2 seconds.

Driving agility and impressive road holding are achieved through extensive chassis development under a partnership with Prodrive – a worldwide leader in chassis dynamics, vehicle dynamic systems and powertrains. Prodrive has six World Rally titles and five British Touring Car Championships to their name.

'The TSO GT2 marks the return of the race bred Marcos coupe in modern form', said Tony Stelliga, Chairman of Marcos Engineering. 'Our extensive Engineering efforts have produced an outstanding Grand Touring car with excellent track capabilities – and a new price/performance point in the industry'.
