2015 Morgan Plus 8 SPEEDSTER Headlines Geneva Show Stand



 2015 Morgan geneva

The Morgan Three-Wheeler and Aero 8 hoover up much enthusiast attention, but are they really the sweet-spot of the Morgan Motor Cars lineup?

We would vote in favor of the Plus 8 Speedster -- a stripped-down and chopped-windshield special based on the legendary best-seller. Running the latest 4.8-liter BMW V8 making 367-horsepower through an automatic or manual transmission, the Plus 8 roars to 60-mph in just 4.5-seconds.

But those numbers do not really capture the drama of launching a Plus 8. With your rump almost right atop the back axle, the Plus 8 Speedster removes the bulky glass from your line of sight. You can watch the Plus 8 heel up and snap forward with full 4K-HD resolution. Peering out over the vented hood and plunging fenders is even easier with the Speedster.

The Geneva Morgan Plus 8 Speedster is a very nice monochrome finish with black solid-alloy wheels and a contrast matte-black grille. It is a real stunner.

But don't forget the real glam-pus of the range: the Aero 8.

Simply fantastic as a roadster with a hardtop.
