The Morgan Plus 8 Speedster: Living Up to Its Legend
A limited edition Morgan is headed our way. The company has revealed their newest model called the Plus 8 Speedster. Production is scheduled to begin this June with the first cars available later this year. Wondering what’s to look forward to this time? The Plus 8 Speedster is sleeker and sportier than the Plus 8 yet it retains the timeless Morgan look. Morgan Motor Company practically invented retro and now they’ve combined it with the best of modern technology. The latest aluminum chassis holds everything together with help from a leather belt that keeps the hood in place. The speedster travels 0-62 mph in 4.2 seconds courtesy of the BMW 4.8-liter V8 inside. It seems only fitting that a special edition car come at a special edition price – and it does. The Morgan Plus 8 Speedster will sell for £69,995, which is about $117,000.
