Morgan Plus 8
The Morgan Plus 8 is the ultimate combination of craftsmanship and technology. A lightweight aluminium chassis and 4.8 litre BMW engine sit beneath the traditional Morgan body. At just 1220kg, the Plus 8 is one of the lightest V8 passenger cars in the world and is fully approved to European safety standards. Unlocking the full potential of the driver, getting behind the wheel of a Morgan Plus 8 is an addictive and uncompromising driving experience. Available with either a 6 speed ZF automatic or a 6 speed manual gearbox, the Plus 8 is as much at home on a winding country road as it is in the city.
A 367 bhp 4.8 litre BMW V8 engine and a 6 speed manual or ZF 6 speed automatic gearbox propels the car from 0-62 in 4.2 seconds with a limited top speed of 148 mph. The latest in aluminium chassis developments ensure that its performance and road-holding will match its looks. The Speedster boasts a power to weight ratio to rival any vehicle in its class.
Following the Morgan tradition, each Speedster comes with a comprehensive list of options to enable every car to be personalised by its owner. Furthermore, every Plus 8 Speedster will sport a series of eccentric styling features only made available on the 100 years celebratory models built during 2014.”
