eBay watch: Very rare 1970s Marcos Mantis M70 sports car

Marc1

When we say that only 32 of these were ever made and that only 12 are said to be still around, you'll realise just how rare this 1970s Marcos Mantis M70 sports car actually is.

This bizarre British-made car has had just two owners since 1978 and just 44,000 miles on the clock after a full engine rebuild in the 1980s. It also comes with  'a wealth of Marcos paraphernalia' (sales catalogues and magazine articles) and was recently recommissioned, which means it should be good to go. Like the fact that it still has an 8-track player too.

This is a head-turning car and with added rarity value, it's never going to be cheap. This one is up for £14,500. More images on the listing.
