Marcos was a British sports car manufacturer. The name derives from the surnames of founders Jem Marsh and Frank Costin. In 1992 Marcos left the kit car business and launched the Marcos Mantara that was sold through dealers in limited numbers. The main difference between the Mantara and the Mantula was the adoption of McPherson strut front suspension in place of the Triumph suspension, which in turn resulted in a wider front track, different bonnet, and flared front arches. The Mantara was powered as standard by a 3.9-litre Rover V8 or a 4.6 as an optional extra. For a return to GT racing, a range of modified Mantaras was also produced in the LM (Le Mans) versions. In order to qualify as a production vehicle, road going cars were also made. Several version of the LM were made such as the LM400 (with a Rover 3.9-litre engine), LM500 (Rover 5-litre) and LM600 (with 6-litre Chevrolet small-block V8). Only 30 road-going LM cars were ever built, and of these only one was a road-going LM600.
