The manufacturing rights and moulds for the Mk 2 & Mk 3 Centaurs passed to John Smith and Derek Green of Mirage Developments who marketed the cars as the Pulsar 2 and Pulsar 3. The business was for sale in 1981 for £4500 including the moulds and one demo car. At this point  six body shells had been completed, four Mk 2s and two MK 3s. Finally the project passed onto MR developments till its final demise in 1982
