One of Morgan’s four cars at the Geneva Motor Show 2012 is the new Morgan Plus 8. It revives a name that went out of production in 2004 having originally entered production in 1968. The Morgan Plus 8 is being marketed as a comfortable classic and ‘a true drivers car’. We took a closer look!
The new Morgan Plus 8 makes use of technology from the aircraft industry to achieve an unladen weight of only 1100kgs. This makes the Plus 8 the lightest V8 passenger car in the world approved to European safety standards. It is available with a six speed automatic transmission coupled to a 4.8 liter BMW V8 engine with 367bhp or 390bhp with sports exhaust.
