2007 Marcos TSO GTC

The British manufacturer, Marcos Engineering, this week announced the world premiere of its new TSO super car at London’s exclusive Salon Prive private Luxury and Supercar Show.

The TSO GTC model is a classic British race-inspired 2-seat sports coupe that comes with racing suspension, racing brakes and a rear diffuser. The GTC is priced at 91539$.

The TSO R/T model delivers a thrilling open top driving experience with dual removable roof panels - combining a roadster experience with the safety, confidence and styling of the coupe. The R/T comes equipped with touring suspension, cargo nets and premium sound and is priced at 98865$.

Both models come standard with a 420 horsepower aluminum V8 engine and a 6-speed manual gearbox. A 462 horsepower Performance Pack is also available. TSO’s are being delivered this summer to the Marcos Dealer Network.

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.

The TSO is reliable - with the same proven V8 engine and drivetrain components found in the Corvette and Monaro. Induction, exhaust and electronics modifications by Marcos further enhance the TSO’s drivability and performance.

The TSO is a performer – a 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.

It should be thankful for its parts because they are what have made it attractive.

The main feature was its own figure. If it weren’t for the elaborate components, it would look rather bland.

Its focus is on the appeal of its built, that’s why components have been creatively added to endorse it.

This doubled-purpose car of Marcos has a great exterior design. The color even makes it look cool and at the same time, fierce.

It sure is expensive! I like the design as it emphasized its sexiness, but what I noticed most is the fin look-a-like side; it’s like a shark!

It has the extra ordinary design that it looks so cool. The wheels are striking. Its amazing that it has a maximum speed of 185mph.

This car it is a quite impressive. I just think it is some kind of expensive. But for me it has an attraction and sexy concept.

The bright and shining color Marcos TSO GTC is very impressive. I like the front hood of the car but I think the rear back doesn’t get my taste. I don’t like a car that does not have edges, and I think it is some kind of expensive.

For this car its has bright and shining color is very impressive. I also think it is some kind of expensive. It has an attraction and sexy concept.

Its bright and shining color is very impressive. I just think it is some kind of expensive. It has an attraction and sexy concept.

The bright and shining color of TSO is very impressive. Wow this TSO is not only made for a racing car but also designed to drive in city streets. Dual Purpose, that’s why it has a dual removable roof panels that is changeable in anytime.

Another attraction and sexy concept, not only for aesthetic or impressive bright color used, but because its one of the master of Marcos TSO GTC

Don’t look at the model, they are teasing us. By the way, I like the front hood of the car but I think the rear back doesn’t get my taste. I don’t like a car that does not have edges, and I think it is some kind of expensive.

The car looks like a fish because it has a fin! HAHA! By the way, what really caught my attention is the model. It is a good thing that they are using models to promote their car because it really adds for a car.

Are those U.K. prices meant to be in pounds, or are those the U.K. prices converted to U.S. dollars? If it’s the latter, keep in mind that their pound MSRP is often the same as our dollar MSRP, which means that this vehicle could actually cost ’Vette money in the U.S.
Either way, I want one. Reminds me of the old E-Type.

The GTC is powered by a 6-liter Corvette V8, massaged to produce "a uniquely engineered exhaust note. Just like the TVR. Coincidence?
Some of the lines at this car reminds me of the old Shelby cobra - it sure looks nice!

this is probably as close as you can get to a full blown race car, which is still legal for street use. The TSO is constructed with a lightweight composite body, space frame chassis and comes with 420 hp (313 kW) on tap from the all aluminum V8.
