Marcos Mantis

Like many automakers which produced small car in the early 1970s, Marcos has stopped production in those years, and restored him in 1981, when the company's founder Jam March back on the market with improved versions of their sports cars with a body of type В«coupeВ». Although the cars started with four-cylinder engines, in the mid-1980s, used a V-shaped eight-cylinder engine Rover. When Rover withdrew from the production in the mid-1990s, the company Marcos asked the Ford for their V-shaped-cylinders engine and thus was born Mantis. Under the wild species fiberglasovym body was hidden powerful steel backbone frame, with the MacPherson at the front and a lever with transverse links in the back. In front of the used 432 mm wheel disks, while the rear was above and beyond. In all cars Mantis with seven spokes in the wheels had a Vortech supercharger on the engine Ford with 32-valve, with a capacity of 336 kW. Massive hood left the place as for the engine, and exhaust holes ventilation system of the vehicle interior.
