Found this pics at Vintagebikes.de which you should visit if you want to see some real cool oldschool galeries.
Never seen or have heard of a Marin Vario before.
Pics are from the 1995 Downhill Eurocup. The silver one obviously belonged to the back then 17 year old Nolwenn Le Caer.
If you have some information on these bikes or some more pics feel free to contribute.
From my research the later 1996 Marin Monocoque and the 1997 Marin Quake were clearly inspired by this Marin Vario. So any info you want to share with me an the rest of the world?
