Use of “marque”

Use of “marque”

I''m wondering if there is a lesson already in Kwiziq that might help me with my confusion around the use of "marque" below in sentences I read elsewhere: 

1. C'est une marque de voitures anglaise 

2. Nous désirons acheter une voiture d'une marque anglaise 

The What are the rules of placing marque relative to voiture and anglaise? Why is there repetition of "une" in #2 to refer to each noun (voiture/marque), when there is no such repetition in #1? I was expecting to see "Nous désirons acheter une voiture de marque anglaise" (similar to the structure in #1). Thanks for your help! Rod
