THE FACTORY-BUILT MARLIN 5EXi
Marlin Sports Cars have been building specialist sports cars, for customers to drive away from our Mid Devon factory, for more than 25 years.
The 5EXi combines specialist design and small-scale production with well-proven, hi-tech components from Volkswagen and Honda, giving the customer the best of all worlds.
Being hand-built for each individual customer means the final specification of each car can be tailored to their requirements. From body colour and level of trim, to engine spec and wheel choice - you call the shots, with as much expert advice from us as you want.
Maybe budget is a priority – we can keep the cost right down with a gel coat (no spraying required) finish on the bodywork, inexpensive Volkswagen or Honda engine assemblies and basic interior trim. You can even save big money by completing the assembly yourself (see self-build).
Or perhaps you want the no-holds-barred ultimate? We can give you a high-quality, metallic paint finish, leather trim and digital dashboard, and the ultimate in alloy wheels and rubber – all underpinned by a Tarmac-eating, turbocharged engine giving you a power-to-weight ratio that will leave supercar owners sobbing in lay-bys.
Road or track
The 5EXi was created for the road and, although you might buy it as a second or third car, you’ll soon find you’re using it more and more. With a road-tune engine and full weather equipment, it’s surprisingly user-friendly, and will make even busy roads a pleasure again.
But like any true driver’s car, it’s also completely at home on the circuit, making it the perfect trackday device – and one that you can drive there and home again.
If you’re a bit more serious about your trackday action, we can build it with any combination of engine/gearbox so you can discover the 5EXi’s ultimate potential.
In fact, if you want to use your 5EXi for serious motorsport, we can help there too – we already race a three-car 5EXi team in the Castle Combe GT Championship, where we regularly give Porches and Ferraris a run for their money! (see track or race cars)
Or if you fancy a combination of road and race use, we also have experience of sprint and hillclimb cars. You name it!
No choice on quality
But whatever version of 5EXi you finally opt for, our high standards of design, build and service remain the same.
The Marlin 5EXi is built the way a fine sportscar should be – just the way you want it.
