The Plus 8 is an iconic sports car built by British firm Morgan, and it’s making a comeback as a limited edition model.
Named Morgan Plus 8 50th Anniversary Special Edition, the car will be limited to just 50 examples, which will be sold through the brand’s dealership network at an undisclosed price.
Underpinned by a lightweight aluminum chassis, the Morgan Plus 8 50th Anniversary Special Edition “will be the last 50 Plus 8 vehicles Morgan builds with the acclaimed BMW 4.8-liter V8 engine”, the automaker said.
Tipping the scale at 1,100kg (2,425lbs), this is “one of the lightest V8 passenger cars in the world”, according to the firm, needing just 4.5 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100km/h (62mph), before tapping out at 250km/h (155mph).
Nothing else is known about it so far, although enthusiasts won’t have to wait that long for the reveail, as it will celebrate its world premiere at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, which starts on March 6 for the press, and two days later for the public.
