13. Marcos TSO
Outside of Britain, Marcos was a little-known sports car manufacturer. But on the domestic market, it had a reputation for building fast and relatively affordable sports coupes. Always considered a kit car company, Marcos used engines and drivetrain components from other brands.
In 2004, Marcos presented the TSO. It was a cool-looking coupe with Chevrolet’s LS1 V8 engine that delivered 400 HP to the rear wheels. Despite its great looks, brutal performance and aggressive marketing, the company managed to build and sell just a few of them before disappearing from the market in 2007.
