    New Marcos

    Anyone see the new Marcos/TVR Clone on Top Gear tonight? Richard Hammond was twitering on about how the new SBC powered Marcos was a brilliant combination of Yank Muscle in a Lightweight British sports Car. Familiar Story?

    Missed the start, although SWMBO has it on Sky+ Series Link...

    Bugatti Veyron vs. GD...?

    Sorry, Andy, I think it would piss all over even the T70 (although I'd rather buy the T70 and keep the change... )

    mmm and the new Marcos is so cramped inside even that famous pigmy Hammond complained; note Clarkson didnt even try to get his massive carcass inside it!!
    Hey if you want a Yank V8 in an uncomplicated lightweight car that breaks down a lot, you need a kit car!!!!!

    I forgot that bit, when the 'Hampster' mentioned how cramped it was I noticed he actually had his seat moved closer to the steering wheel!

    Much nicer looking than any TVR will ever be and it had a decent engine in it.

    Bit over priced though for what it was. Did he say about 60 grand.

    P.S. I hate TVR's


    Built a Dax once, Long time ago, painted it blue, original huh...?

    Re: New Marcos

    Just looked at their promotional video on the Marcos site - looks like a great car, very pretty.

    What is it with sports car manufacturers and dodgy music? Anyone who has watched the GD "porn" build videos will understand

    Talking of manufacturers videos, anyone seen the new Honda TV ad? The one where the baldy beardy medallion man guy sets off on a monkey bike, progressing through all sorts of Hondas, and ends up going over a waterfall on a speedboat; somehow coming out in a balloon; brilliant; must have cost a shocking fortune!!!

    Re: New Marcos

    Anyone notice a passing similarity between the Daytona Coupe, (ie the new Shelby Concept posted on here recently) and the new Marcos ?

    The marcos looks nice, but it just shows coming up with something new is not easy..
