Whilst out this evening at Tesco, purchasing a few supplies for the Banger Does Britain run, I was pleasantly disturbed by the familiar, throaty V8 rumble one associates with a the ex-Buick Rover bent eight. Not in a sedate, muffled form, but a sporting application. And what a rarity it was – not the expected TVR behind me but this delightful Marcos Mantara Spyder. Understandably the owner had a big grin on his face as he emerged to do a bit of shopping. Enjoy those 1960s lines, with wheel arches stereoided up to 90s specification.
