MARLIN EXi STILL SUPER ‘SEXY’!

Although it’s never really been away, Marlin’s excellent EXi has been enjoying good sales of late and has been re-launched. There’s also a slight change of name from ‘5EXi’ to ‘EXi’.

The Devon-based company, run by Terry Matthews, has been concentrating on their BMW diesel-powered Sportster model in recent months, but have now turned their attention to the EXi, once more.

It’s a car I’ve always enjoyed, indeed, I spent some time with one at the Nordschleife some years ago and had a great time, aside from running out of petrol on one lap, but moving swiftly on.

These days, Marlin concentrate solely More >
