Marcos Mantis M70 (1970-72)

Second generation of the Marcos Mantis was the 4-seater M70. Launched in 1970 and had a fuel-injected 2.5-litre Triumph TR6 six-cylinder injected engine mated to a 4-speed gearbox. The promotional brochure says the styling "gives high all round visibility", 

and "a low centre of gravity together with an extremely wide track ensures superb roadholding.

The luxurious interior seats four in comfort, and the boot, with a capacity of 10 cubic feet, makes the Mantis ideal for the man who is going places and wants to travel in style." 32 were sold before the company went into liquidation in 1972. (wikipedia)
