The brand new 2012 Morgan Plus 8 was officially introduced last month and showed its face at the Geneva Motor Show 2012 last week. Tim aka Shmee150 filmed the roadster, which is based on the appearance of the old model with all of the newer underpinings, while it puts down some tread on the road at the Goodwood Hill Climb.
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.
