The Morgan Plus 8


The Morgan Plus 8 combines a lightweight aluminium chassis and a 4.8litre BMW engine 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 by European safety standards. Getting behind the wheel of a Morgan Plus 8 is an addictive and uncompromising experience which unlocks the full potential of the driver.

The standard specification for the Morgan Plus 8 is that the motor is supplied with neither windscreen or roof, designed to replicate the “Speedster” style Plus 8 as produced in limited numbers in 2014. The Morgan Plus 8 benefits from many standard features such as silver six spoke ally wheels, manual transmission, heater and power steering and much more.

The Plus 8 comes with the option of adding an easy up hood to protect you and your car from the elements. This hood enables one person to put up or take down the roof quickly and easily. When down, the hood does not disrupt the clean, elegant lines of the Plus 8 and is available in a range of different mohair colours.

The Morgan Plus 8 is available with a manual transmission as standard. However, the powerful Plus 8 can also be managed by an optional 6 Speed ZF automatic transmission with optional paddle shift to further enhance the driving experience.
