Morgan Plus 8

This year at the Geneva Motor Show, in March, Morgan will introduce a new model, the Plus 8 that is the lightest V8 passenger car in the world that complies with the European safety standards. It only weights 1100 kg. The chassis of the Plus 8 is the stiffest a convertible roadster can have. The model is powered by 4.8-liter V8 engine the same like the new Aero Coupe develop by Morgan as well. It is able to deliver 367 BHP and 490 Nm of torque. Actually, the carmaker offers us two versions: one with a 6-speed automatic transmission and one with a 6-speed manual gearbox and the automatic one also offer two driving modes. Sport and Auto. The model can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds and can reach a top speed of 155 mph. Morgan equips its model with a mohair convertible roof, a radio/CD player, leather upholstery and air conditioning. The price of the Plus 8 is still a mystery.
