Read what the press had to say ……..
"Its an ugly little bastard the Mini Marcos. Always has been. Mind you there aren't many kitcars with a better following"
"The car positively hugs the inside line as if on rails and its so impressive that I do three laps - once to make sure and again to have a laugh. Now its me with a perma-grin all over my face. This car is irresistible"
"It sounds like a Mini, feels like a sportscar with GT practicality and handles like a deity"
"The Marcos seems to be on rails as you simply control the steering and let the suspension do its job. Impressive"
"Sitting inside a Marcos is confusing. For such a small car, there's seemingly acres of space."
"The 1275cc Carburettor fed A-series up front has some 78bhp to play with in a car weighing 650kg. Consequently, I make short work of overtaking obstacles, but the fun has yet to come."
"The legend has returned and judging by the unabated enthusiasm that continues to exist for the A-series Mini, it seems as if it still has a long way to go"
“Within a minute of driving it I’m exhibiting the classic symptoms of nostalgia”
“ The steering is great; pure Mini, proportional, brimful of feel and yet impressively light at parking speeds. And grip levels are astonishing.”
“..it’s an absolute hoot to drive. Performance is brisk, well up to modern warm hatch standards and, while we didn’t figure it, 0-60mph in 8.5secs sounds about right.”
“The Mini Marcos is one of those designs that just refuses to lay down and die.”
“A well engineered car that simply exudes character.”
“With a lusty 70bhp on tap and good aerodynamics, this car punches above its weight and brisk progress is the order of the day”
“its affordable, tough, and dependable and has huge potential for tuning”
“its very well planted and the all round visibility is simply amazing”
“The MK VI is a free-spirited machine with a great smile – to – mile ratio”
Classic Car Weekly
“The legendary Mini Marcos makes a return at this year’s Prescott Hill Climb…”
“The comeback kid”
“You can still produce this car very cheaply and you are getting a genuine Marcos, nothing less.
“One of the great things about the “classic” race is the “classic” crowd. Rae had nothing but praise for the reception the Marcos received from the hundreds of international enthusiasts at Le Mans”
“.. you wouldn’t be normal if you didn’t want to see a Mini Marcos GT doing 150mph”
“One of the smallest and most quirkily styled GT cars for the 1960’s.”
“The Mini Marcos itself is celebrating a victory of sorts”
