That something extra No: 8

Taurus were another of the tuning companies to benefit from a feature in this long running series in Autocar.

In this article Peter Garnier looks round Taurus & meets Ted Marchant.

A Taurus Mini Cooper.

This is a truly glowing review of the "new" Taurus Stage 1 conversion for the Mini Cooper.

Once again proving that Taurus really were one of the prime movers in the tuning of cars during the 1960's it is a real shame that they have been almost totally eclipsed by the likes of Downton & Speedwell who’s products were only marginally, if any better at all than the products offered by this great London based company.  One of my real favourites!
