Marauder 1951

Great Britain




Marauder Type A Sports Tourer, introduced in August 1950 three-seater open model has evolved from ideas developed in a single-seater sprint racing car, by a group of enthusiasts with Rover connections. Understandably the Marauder is based on Rover components which includes a shortened Rover 75 chassis, with coil spring IFS, a twin carburettor, tuned version of Rover 75 2.1-litre engine which has an output of 80 bhp at 4200 rpm and four-speed gearbox with overdrive (unless fitted with free-wheel). Certain modifications were made in 1951, at which time a more powerful (Type 100) version became available.
