This Marcos is one of the last cars to be built at the Wiltshire factory. The original TS250 was a Ford V6, the press and enthusiasts where asking for a V8.
The TS500 was the answer, with a wider wheel track, updated stronger LM600 chassis, limited slip diff. The air intake was made larger and the cooling was updated which enables the 5.0L V8 to tick over all day with out any over heating problems.
The photos do not do this car justice, the paint work is in original Sparkling metallic silver now in A1 condition, the car having entered the show and shine at the Marcos National did not disgrace itself, it would not need that much work to make it a show winning car.
The car is great to drive, having previously owned TVRs, Lotus, Ferrari's and MGs this car would have been a great alternative competitor.
It has covered just 15000 miles from new with the all MOTs verified by DVLA.(at time of advert, as the cars mileage will increase during the summer).
The engine is a 5 Litre V8 producing 320 bhp, weighing in at just over a 1 ton. The TS500 is capable of achieving 60mph in around 4 seconds with a top speed of over 160mph and a sound track to match a Aston martin.
Five speed gear box and limited slip differential, along with adjustable suspension and low profile new tyres, keeps this car firmly on the road.
LED rear lamps
Fixed seats with electric pedal box.
With many more extras.
This car was featured in the Marcos sales brochure, and was used at the launch at Canary Warf and Goodwood Festival of speed in 2004.It was also used as the press car for all the motoring magazines at the time.
There is a complete write up about the car by Graham Bell.
