Morgan made an announcement earlier this year that it will build a limited number of Morgan Plus 8s as new GTR using the framework it was found many years later Plus 8 production is out. Today, Morgan made the final reveal of the Plus 8 GTR with a final build of the first customer car.
The main difference between the new GTR and the old Plus 8 models is the new engine/power output tuning. It still shakes like before BMW car The same 4.8-liter V8 as before, but this GTR version makes 375 hp instead of the standard 362 hp. Morgan attributes that benefit to a new “cannon-style” twin exhaust system and engine tuning. That makes it the most powerful Morgan ever. Besides the extra power, Morgan says it also improves throttle response.
That’s it when it comes to performance improvements. Aesthetically, the Plus 8 GTR features a unique five-spoke central locking wheel, one tights To lower the vehicle visually, “GTR” trim covers the lights and side slits on the hood for cooling. The particular car you’re looking at here is finished in Yas Marina Blue, meant to pay homage to the “Big Blue” Plus 8 race car that competed in the 1990s. However, each one. The Morgan Plus 8 GTR will be a special edition authorized by each owner and customized to their liking. These images are the first we have of a finished vehicle, and Morgan says the rest of the nine will be completed in the coming months.
There is no public pricing attached to these Morgan models yet, but it doesn’t really matter either. All nine have been talked about, so can’t buy a new one.
