Morgan are producing a limited edition Morgan Plus 8 Speedster to celebrate 100 years of vehicle production at their Pickersleigh Road factory in Malvern, Worcestershire.
Priced at £69,995 the Morgan Plus 8 Speedster is an evolution of the Plus 8, which has been stripped back in homage to the road going race cars of a bygone era. The Plus 8 Speedster will only be produced during 2014.
The Morgan Plus 8 Speedster is powered by a BMW 4.8 litre V8 engine that develops 367 bhp, which can propel the Plus 8 Speedster from 0-62 mph in 4.2 seconds and then on to a limited top speed of 148 mph. There is the choice of either a 6 speed manual or ZF 6 speed automatic gearbox. And as Morgan tradition dictates each Speedster comes with a comprehensive list of options to enable every car to be personalised by its owner.Published 22 April 2014
