This is without question the finest Marlin Cabriolet we have ever stocked and has won many awards, including best roadster at the 2011 Stoneleigh specialist sports car show and the best modified roadster at the same event in 2010.

To stop this machine, it is equipped with front and rear discs, utilising soft Green Stuff pads.
