Jem Marsh On The Marcos TS250Published 20 October 2002
After a few uncertain years, I am delighted to say that the company is now in good hands being backed by Tony Stelliga, a bright and energetic entrepreneur from Silicon Valley and a correspondingly enthusiastic workforce.
It has been a busy six months preparing for the show; and, as always, with any car production, refinements and development programmes continue all the time, but the two cars we have on show are the basis of what I believe to be the best car ever produced under the Marcos name.
The Marcasite TS250 is “a car for all people”; the road holding and torque offers an enviable sports car with head turning looks for those who want to drive something special each day; the huge boot capacity will appeal to sports persons and those who like to shop, and its standard components makes for easy servicing and general maintenance.
Having built cars and raced them for over 40 years, I have been able to draw on the experience and knowledge gained during that time to assist in the production of the TS250, which, together with the marques’ own racing heritage, brings a new lease of life to an “old” favourite thus taking it forward into the 21st Century.
The Great British Sports car is back in no uncertain terms,
and I am thrilled and proud to announce the launch of the
Marcasite TS250 at this Motor Show.
