||4.8 BMW V8
||50 of 50
The Plus 8 50th Anniversary is the last of the line for V8 Morgans. The last of the V8s also being the best of the V8s, with an aluminium Aero chassis coupled with the superb naturally-aspirated BMW N62 engine and the iconic Morgan coach-built body. Limited to just 50 cars, a large number of one-off features separate the 50th Anniversary from the standard Plus 8. Each of these special features was designed in-house and inspired heavily by the original Plus 8 Works race car: MMC II. Through use of straight-cut stainless steel exhaust, the Plus 8 50th Anniversary is arguably the best-sounding Morgan production car of all time.
The example we bring to the open market today car is the most desirable of them all; the final car to be built, number 50 of 50. Indicated by both the lacquered lettering on the rear of the car, and the commemorative plaque positioned between the two seats. Chassis 4058 was completed in Malvern on 28th September 2018 as the last production V8 Morgan, 50 years after the first was created. This car is brand new with delivery mileage.
