XCAR: Step back in time with the Morgan Plus 8

2:43 /

A slice of 'proper' British Motoring with the Morgan Plus 8 is never something to turn down. It's got big power, stunning looks and massive fun properly sorted.

Morgan calls this car the Plus 8 not because it's morbidly obese or it can seat 8 people but because it's got a V8 engine, a noisy one at that. The Plus 8 is proper British motor and it's best have with the roof down and you can even take off the doors off for appropriate roads to feel but today, I think we best have the roof up because I really don't wanna turn it into a very expensive [unk]. This Plus 8 is different from the one you may know and love. This one is based on aluminium chassis like you get in the Aero 8 rather than ash wood one like you get in the old Plus 8. It also seats on some quite beefy alloys. It's got some AP racing brakes and has a mini [unk] kit than its predecessor. Don't worry, though, if you still want one of the old ones, Morgan will still happily make you one. It just won't be as good a car as this. Think of the new Plus 8 as a wood in Robert's debut radio. It's like the car you remember but slightly most suited to the modern age. -Well, let me clarify that. You see, Morgan could have stuck to his guns, kept with the old school that may probably old British motor cars. But instead, it's up to its game because it's current audience while it's a little shuffling off the motor crew and a younger audience, well, they want something that still honks back to Morgan's heritage but can grab the establishment by the scruff of its neck and give it a good hiding. And give it a good hiding it can, it comes with a BMW source of 390 brake horsepower, 370 pound per foot torque with 8 liter V8. And because it weighs just over a ton, it will hit 62 miles and hour from rest in 4.2 seconds or as we like to put it not very long at all. Officer but that's all it does come as a price just over 82,000 pounds less before you started putting toys on it. But just look at it. It's the essence of old school British motor. You get this beautiful guttural noise and it's just an incredible thing to experience. Is it worth it? Oh, yes.
