New Morgan Plus Six Eager To Tackle 2019 Goodwood Hillclimb

Morgan is set to unleash its new Plus Six model onto the Goodwood Hillclimb event next week.

The Plus Six will perform two high-speed runs, thrilling the crowd with its BMW-sourced 3.0-liter turbo six that’s good for 335 HP and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque. With the aid of an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, the Plus Six is able to get from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.2 seconds and max out at 166 mph (267 km/h).

That speed is not due to sheer power alone, but also the fact that it weighs just 2,369 lbs (1,075 kg) – less than a Ford Fiesta supermini.

“It is with great pride that Morgan Motor Company can represent the history and evolution of the automobile in Britain at the nation’s largest, and best loved automotive event. The Festival of Speed has become a national institution over the last quarter of a century, and we are delighted to have our newest, and most exciting sportscar going up the famed Goodwood hill,” said the company’s head of marketing, Toby Blythe.

“The Plus Six’s dynamic global debut is an incredibly significant event in the 110th year of Morgan’s wonderful history, and there is no greater place to present the car than the Goodwood Festival of Speed.”

If you happen to be at the Festival of Speed this year, you will find Morgan’s stand opposite the supercar paddock and hill climb start line. On display there will be another example of the Plus Six along with the all-new Morgan CX platform that will underpin their next-gen sports car.
