Filed under: MARCOS Car News | MARCOS Headlines
The Marcos TSO GTC made its public debut today at the exclusive Salon Prive private Luxury and Supercar Show in Britain. The TSO GTC is a race-inspired two-seat sports coupe that comes with racing suspension, racing brakes and a rear diffuser. The car comes standard with a 420 horsepower Aluminium V8 Engine and a 6-speed manual gearbox. A 462 horsepower Performance Pack is also available.

The regular GTC is priced at £49,950. Meanwhile, the £53,950 TSO R/T delivers an open top driving experience with dual removable roof panels. While there has been no word on U.S. availability, pricing is equivalent to somewhere between $80,000 and $90,000.

The TSO’s lightweight composite body, space frame chassis and V8 engine provide an impressive power-to-weight ratio. With the Performance Pack the TSO accelerates to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and to 100 mph in 8.5 seconds. Huge 340mm AP Racing brakes deliver a 0-100-0 time of 12.9 seconds. Overtaking is effortless with a 50 to 70 mph time of just 2.1 seconds. Top speed is over 185 mph.

"The TSO’s combination of tuned V8 power and lightweight design delivers both stunning performance and breathtaking sound in a reliable, precision Engineered and affordable British Supercar," said Tony Stelliga, Marcos Engineering’s Managing Director.

Composites and components are CAD designed and fabricated in England. The Chassis is Engineered and manufactured by Prodrive - a leading developer of motorsport chassis and race cars that have earned five British Touring Car Championships and six World Rally titles. Designed to be lightweight and responsive, the TSO inspires confidence and is communicative up to and beyond the limit.
