Believed to be one of only eight coupes built, this rare Mantara Coupe is a highly original example of Marcos’ first type approved model. Having covered just over 30000 miles from new, the car is in great condition throughout, its usability demonstrated by the European road trips it has covered with its current owner.
Powered by a 3.9-litre Rover V8, this Mantara provides a sporting yet effortless driving experience. To aid the latter, we recently completed a brake servo conversion in addition to fitting new brake discs and pads on all corners.
The paintwork, Cosworth Moonstone Blue, presents well for the car’s age, with only a few minor blemishes present on the bonnet. On the inside, Ink Blue leather upholstery and matching blue carpets contrast with a white headlining, the classic ‘GT’ look completed by an Elm veneer dashboard with Smiths ‘white over black’ instruments. Vital to any Marcos coupe, this Mantara features a recently refurbished air conditioning system.
Marcos’ usual creature comforts are present, including power steering, electric windows, a heated front screen, electric and heated mirrors, and electrically adjustable pedals.
