I view this from the other angle, in that it's now worth a very pushy offer..

They don't say which Rover v8 it is ie what Litres, you really want 4.6 litres and 300 bhp which is the Range Rover classic engine , I would leave it and ring round some dealers for specs of v8 Mogs and give them an offer saying what you want on the car.

When I was looking for decent exhaust for my Plus 8 , I approached RPI.
At that time they couldn't supply an exhaust which utilised the existing inner wing porting, they did offer to lend me a cutter to cut an additional hole in the inner wing,
I would check this hasn't been done as the original holes in the inner wings when supplied by Morgan have rolled edges to provide additional strength.

It's a little steep price wise for a 20+ year old +8. Exhaust can always be piped out the rear if side pipes too loud. As others said I would look for a 4.6L or if you can afford it a 35th Anniversary.

I'd pm Bob the Train if I were you he has a lovely Plus 8 he is thinking of selling. 50 cars away from mine production wise with similar spec. He has a very sound reason for selling.

I do remember that this car (if it is indeed the one I remember) is loud and then some, so not the most appropriate of purchases for someone living in London with sensitive neighbours. Yes it is nice to hear the V8 burble at low revs , and a crackle as you put your foot down, but you also need quieter phases when causing long distances, and I am not sure this car does quiet.


Hi Andy, back from N Norfolk. Weather unbelievably bad. Will pm you regarding visit.
