Morgan announces limited edition Plus 8 Speedster

Morgan has unveiled a new Speedster, the latest evolution of the Plus 8, with power coming from a 367bhp 4.8-litre BMW V8 engine linked to a 6 speed manual or ZF 6 speed automatic gearbox, taking it from 0-62mph in 4.2 seconds, while the top speed is limited at 148mph.

While Morgan did not specify the weight of the Plus 8 Speedster, it points out that thanks to the latest in aluminium chassis developments, its performance and road-holding will match its looks, as well as boasting a power to weight ratio to rival any vehicle in its class.

Every Plus 8 Speedster will sport a series of eccentric styling features only made available on the 100 years celebratory models built during 2014.

The Plus 8 Speedster is priced from £69,995 and production starts this June with first deliveries soon after.
