  1. Are they an english company ?

    This car is good. What make them (the company, please ! LOL) close their doors ?
     
  2. Re: What happened to Marcos ?

    Yes they were.(British)
    Not enough people bought their cars, which made their position tenuous.
    Very fast and exciting cars!

    and their next models will be named Ferdinand and Imelda...(hehe get it? I know that's a bad joke, but it's late...gimme a break lol) actually, this isn't too bad a car..design is pretty original, too bad they didn't catch on, however.
     
  4. Re: What happened to Marcos ?

    I heard they are getting refinanced and may be back in business.
     
  5. Re: What happened to Marcos ?

  6. Re: What happened to Marcos ?

    Marcos failed, dont failed???
    and where's the Marcos LM600 Race Car???

    surprisingly well actually, my neighbour has one. he likened it to a TVR cerbera... its a beast, with loads of oversteer if you dont treat it with the respect it desverves, and is just plain vicious. its no elise, thats for sure.

    scarily fast in a straight line too but its soooo unreliable... its a good idea to have a support team of tow trucks & mechanics even for a short trip to the shops.

  9. Re: What happened to Marcos ?

  11. Re: What happened to Marcos ?

    its nicer in the flesh, pictures dont do it justice. the enigine noise is one of the best ive ever heard.
     
  12. Re: What happened to Marcos ?
