Morgan Plus 8 50th Anniversary Edition
The Morgan Plus 8 50th Anniversary Edition celebrates 50 years of a motoring icon and pays homage to Morgan’s most popular 4 wheeled model over the last half-century.
Production of this model is limited to just 50 examples, each one hand-built and carrying a unique model number.
Morgan Cars Australia has managed to obtain 2 of these limited production slots for Australia. The first one has now arrived and the 2nd is due later this year. Both cars are destined for NSW to enthusiastic Morgan collectors.
The Morgan Plus 8 50th Anniversary is a fitting combination of craftsmanship, luxury and technology. A lightweight aluminium chassis and 4.8-litre BMW engine sit beneath the traditional Morgan body. At just 1,100kg, the Plus 8 is one of the lightest V8 passenger cars in the world and is capable of 0-62 mph in 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph. The Plus 8 50th Anniversary Edition will be the last Morgan vehicle to feature the naturally aspirated BMW V8 engine.
The Plus 8 50th Anniversary Edition is available in two striking colours and two specifications – blue ‘speedster style’ with an open cockpit, or green ‘traditional convertible’ with a soft-top.
