Morgan has revealed its exclusive and limited edition version of the famous Plus 8 at the Geneva International Motor Show.
Only 50 makes of the Plus 8 50th Anniversary will be created, with each separately numbered vehicle costing at the cheapest £107,500 (Approx $189,400 AUD). All things considered, for the huge expense you do additionally receive a Christopher Ward C1 Morgan Plus 8 Chronometer watch, which quite cleverly includes a bit of the very first ‘MMC 11’ 1968 prototype + 8 in the back plate.
It’ll be accessible in two particular renditions – the Racing Green model featuring a soft top, or the blue ‘speedster spec’. Both can, of course, be requested in left-or right-hand drive, as well as manual or automatic transmission.
Whichever form you go for, it’ll keep running on the normally suctioned 4.8-liter BMW V8 motor – and is in fact the last Morgan to do as such. Also, as you would expect, it’s rather fast, equipped for a speed of 0-62 mph in 4.5 seconds and with a best speed of 155 mph (249.45 km/h)
The Plus 8 50th Anniversary vehicle pays reverence to its history in a number of ways. for one, the spun aluminium domed board on its rear to the lively white brake callipers and white ceramic covered twin-cannon style exhaust tips.
Steve Morris, from MMC (Morgan Motor Company) said that:
“For many, the Plus 8 is the archetypal British sports car combining handcrafted, bespoke luxury with exhilarating performance – and that’s exactly why the Plus 8 has been a mainstay of the Morgan range for 50 years.”
Adding “Born on the racetrack, and having been no stranger to it since, has meant performance pedigree underpins every Plus 8. When combined with an uncompromising attention to craftsmanship, luxury and material choice, there is no more desirable Gentleman racer.”
Morgan additionally uncovered photos of its last model of the Aero 8 sports car, the Aero GT.
Only eight GT variations will be hand-created to custom spec for clients, who’ll need to spend at least £120,000 (Approx $211,400 AUD) in addition to tax.
Similarly to the Plus 8 Anniversary, it’ll be fueled by BMW’s N62 V8 motor, which will then be resigned from utilization once the run is finished.
