This makes the Plus 8 the lightest V8 passenger car in the world approved to European safety standards. The car also has one of the stiffest chassis of all the convertible roadsters available today.

The car is the ideal companion on country and urban roads. It responds immediately to a driver's input yet you can also have fun with a clear conscience knowing that the car's impact on nature is kept at a minimum. Wheel speed sensors inform the Electronic Control Unit to get the best possible performance from the engine and to provide a crisp throttle response. The Morgan Plus 8 has been described as 'a true drivers car' yet it is also surprisingly economical to run.

The car is the most comfortable classic Morgan that the company has ever built. The convertible mohair roof is easy to erect with a double thickness liner for insulation. There is plenty of space for the tallest of drivers. Air conditioning is standard equipment in the luxurious leather lined cockpit which includes a lockable stowage compartment. A radio/CD player is standard equipment with a high quality speaker system.

The Plus 8 is also the only Classic Morgan available with a six speed automatic transmission. This can be operated in two modes, 'Sport' and 'Auto'. In 'Sport' mode the engine holds its gear to maximum revs of 6500rpm and 'blips' the throttle before making a down shift. The steering and the ABS brakes are power assisted.

A customer can also personalise his Plus 8 to his individual taste and the choices are virtually inexhaustible. To see a detailed options list and to explore the possibilities please visit the Morgan website, your nearest dealer or the factory in Malvern.
