Additional Info: The Mantula was originally conceived in the early 1960’s, but with a much smaller engine choice back then. It then made a come back I believe in 1981 in kit car form before the 1984 factory one above was built. Uses a Rover V8 engine in many bored out capacities. The Marcos Spyder became available in 1986.
