Having the success of the modern British sports car makers like BAC, and following their footsteps in making track-focused cars, Devon-based Marlin Sports Cars is introducing the Avatar Roadster.

Add to this the rear-drive chassis and in-board adjustable suspension, and it doesn’t take a genius to tell the car is going to an absolute hoot to drive.
Boasting an unlimited mileage, three-year warranty, Avatar Roadster can also be specified with three-way dampers and stiffer springs, six pot brakes, race pads, semi slick/slick tyre options, as well as some hard-core track equipment such as a full roll cage, six-point harnesses, extinguisher, uprated cooling pack, DL1 data logger and camera, HANS custom seat and race-only aero package.
Performance-wise, the 3.6 meter long Avatar sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 150 mph (2.0 liter model). Guess the only thing left to know about this sports car is how it looks. Stay tuned.
