There aren't many of them so you'll have to look hard to find one.

Keep an eye on this site http://www.redlinesportscars.com/marcoscars.php. the red one went earlier this year and you have just missed out on the Orange prototype.

Thx for the hint. had contact Jeremy already. It seems that at least 3 of the press cars were auctioned in 2008. Does s.o. know of the whereabouts of the two grey TSO?

I own a grey/silver TSO. A friend of mine has the one that was on top gear. It is a similar colour which some may describe as grey. I can't really speak for both of us but neither of them are for sale. I know that doesn't help you much except that it may help narrow your search.

Are any of these TSO's likely to be available to buy in the not too distant future? I completed my Gap year here during university and would love to own a part of my past.

Hi Steve,

Saw that you worked at the tso factory, I am sure other Marcos owners would be interested to hear your stories/experiences whilst you were there, any photographs of work in progress,

Good luck in your search,


Martyn.
P.S. you could try one of the older models ?

The below comment is at the bottom of the advert, i wonder how much the rights of ownership and tech info would go for, lottery money ?

"Parties interested in TSO Drawings, Design Rights, Brand Ownership and IP Rights might also also like to contact me at giles@gilescooperautomotive.co."

Some real licence being applied there are the reasons for Marcos' failure.
Why let facts get in the way of a used car advert....

Probably the car advertised on pistonheads a short while ago. There is a link to the advert a couple of entries ago although it no longer works. I spoke to Giles Cooper about the car and he told me that a guy came from Germany and took the TSO and a Sagaris. The car appeared identicle to the one I have and posted a picture of.
Sorry don't have a name.

I know the car is sold but I just found this old advertisement

Yes, it went to Hamburg/Germany, sold by Giles Cooper in May.
I know the owner. Rare car indeed, was build for Tony Stelliga himself, mapped to 500bhp.
