This car entertains and certainly moves... here is a demonstration you tube film of a Sportster, driven by Chris Goffey, albeit with a 2.8 BMW engine rather than the 2.5 BMW engine fitted to this car :-
Read about all the Marlin options : See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marlin_(car)
This car moves along in 5th gear at 2000rpm cruising at approx 70mph according to the owner and comes with a plug-in phone charger / sat nav charge point, a spare brake servo, a spare electronic control box, a set of spark plugs, two Haynes BMW manuals and a full split tonneau, but no weather equipment.
(THIS IS NOT BASED ON EITHER TRIUMPH HERALD OR MARINA running gear - quite a different car)

Used last year on an Alpine trip to Italy and back to great success by septuagenarian owner -
BMW engine from a 525 Saloon
Not perfect cosmetically with slight crazing to GRP - no damage though, just a patinated car
Accent is loosely on Alfa Romeo 8C type looks - the Italians say they were confused last year.
