The 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.
