Marussia, which was last seen showing a new car and new colors at the Frankfurt Motor Show, has spent the intervening months being quiet and productive. In addition to putting together promotional packages like commercials and rolling footage, the three-year-old Russian company is now an official partner of Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Racing.
The details are scant, but the two parties have signed a multi-year deal with Marussia getting "major on car, driver and team branding." Taking the Virgin step further, Marussia signed up with Cosworth, Virgin's engine supplier, and Cosworth will help the Russian company develop gas and diesel engines and drivetrains.
Follow the jump to check out two vids of all three Marussias on track, and the three Marussia commercials along with the official press release. Be sure to watch how the model has to squeeze herself into the cockpit – it looks tiny in there. Hat tip to Greg!
