The new Morgan Plus 8 4.8 litre is all about class, style and uniqueness. It makes use of technology from the aircraft industry in order to achieve weight of only 1100kgs. If this doesn't speak to you anything, well it means that the Plus 8 model is the lightest V8 passenger car in the world, which is approved to European safety standards. In addition, the car also has one of the stiffest chassis of all the convertible roadsters available today. To go further, there are also added wheel speed sensors in the Electronic Control Unit, thus getting the best possible performance from the engine and providing a crisp throttle response. In addition, very surprisingly is that the new Morgan Plus 8 is very economical to drive. This model is undeniably the most comfortable classic Morgan that the brand has ever designed. For instance, the convertible mohair roof is easy to erect with a double thickness liner for insulation. Moreover, there is plenty of space for the tallest of drivers. The air conditioning is featured as standard equipment in the leather lined cockpit which also includes a lockable stowage compartment. Of course, a radio/CD player with a high quality speaker system comes also as standard equipment.

Furthermore, the Morgan Plus 8 is the only Classic Morgan on which is mounted six speed automatic transmission. It can be used in two modes: "Sport" and "Auto". To be more precise, the ‘Sport' mode the engine holds its gear to maximum revs of 6500rpm and blips the throttle before making a down shift. Adding further to the comfort of the ride, the designer have made power assisted steering and ABS brakes. And if one still doesn't find this Morgan to be original enough, there is the possibility of further personalization of the vehicle according to their individual taste.
