Marcos launches TSO GTC coupé
11 July 2006

Marcos has unveiled the new TSO GTC coupe at the Salon Privé Luxury and Supercar Show in Fulham, London.

The result of a year’s development of the original TSO cabriolet, the GTC uses a spaceframe with composite panels.

Under the bonnet is a version of the Corvette’s 6.0-litre V8, available in either 420bhp or 462bhp Performance versions. The latter shoots from 0 to 60mph in 4.1sec, 0-100mph in 8.5sec and on to a top speed of 185mph, with 50-70mph taking 2.1sec.

Handling has been developed in cooperation with Banbury-based rally specialist Prodrive – which also builds the car’s chassis – so expect a dynamic driving experience.

Alongside the regular TSO GTC, which costs £49,950, is a targa-style version, the TSO R/T, which comes with two removable roof panels.

The TSO will initially be sold through Worcestershire dealer David Gerald Sportscars.

    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
