The Marlin Sportster is a kit car stalwart – and it’s still going strong. Ian Stent drives a privately owned Rover V8 powered example… and it has left him wanting a V8 in his life. Is this the grown-up alternative to a Lotus Seven style roadster?
Spoiler alert: this is by far the best GBS Zero we’ve ever driven. The company’s constant development has paid dividends – find out why were were so impressed by this 2.5-litre Ford Duratec powered car in the latest issue of Complete Kit Car.
The Adams brothers gained widespread critical acclaim for their innovative designs, and the Probe 15 is arguably the purest form of what they did. Read how this one-off has been restored to as-new spec… even though the owner can’t actually fit inside to drive it!
Take one 1980s kit car and update it for track days… we see how one reader breathed new life into a Ginetta G31 with a Ford Duratec engine conversion and some other choice upgrades.
