Marcos unveils new TSO models

Specialty sports car manufacturer Marcos took the wraps off its new TSO models Tuesday at London's exclusive Salon Privé luxury and supercar event.

Available in two flavors, the performance-oriented GTC and the targa-topped R/T grand tourer (pictured), the newest TSO is powered by a 5.7-liter Corvette V8, with the R/T spec sheet citing 475 hp. A six-speed manual gearbox is standard. With the optional Performance Pack, 4Car reports that the TSO does the 0-60 sprint in 4.1 seconds, with a top speed of 185 mph. If safety is a primary concern, perhaps you should look elsewhere - the Marcos carries neither airbags nor ABS.

Only 50 or so of the built-to-order TSOs will be made annually, with U.K. prices starting at $92,000 for the GTC and just under $100,000 for the R/T.

See additional live shots of the Marcos TSO models at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend at PistonHeads.
