As there are a myriad of posts running on this topic, I felt it was worth combining them for reference in the future. I will close the other threads and ask, for continuity, that we move future discussion of the EvaGT to this thread. thumbs

As a reference:

As per The Morgan Car News , the technical specification in the MMC EvaGT press pack is as follows: -

Quote:
Morgan EvaGT (specification subject to change)

The goal is to manufacture a practical car that could be used everyday and answer all a family’s transport needs. Although it has two large doors the car can seat four adults and has a large boot (reference the current Morgan Aero SuperSport, but it is considerably deeper on the EvaGT with a full hatch style entry). As all Morgans the car will be fun to drive with sensitive hydraulic power steering and excellent balance. The mass is evenly distributed within the axles and the car has short overhangs.

Specification

Weight 1250 kgs

Rear wheel drive

BMW Twin Turbo straight six.

306 Bhp 400 nm torque

Choice of 6 speed manual or automatic gearbox.

Would this mean it will share the transmission from a BMW?

I've looked at the pictures several times during the day and each time the car grows on me more and more.

So whose it aimed at? For me with the aero as a weekend car it won't work and as a weekday car I'd love to say yes but I don't think it would go down well with my customers. I do worry that we will find them outside football training grounds grin2

So for me it would have to be a weekend car, but for that I'd like to see some of the roof disappear, maybe it could come with a webasto style roof.

I hope the life car when we see it if as good, and well done Matt H for carrying it off, first time I've looked on Pistonheads and seen an overwhelmingly positive response on a new Morgan. thumbs

Must admit I too was pleasantly surprised at all the positive comments though there was one with the same old same old doom mongering laugh2

I also agree with Asbo, re my weekend toy being a roof off job and would suggest that applies to most Morganeers but.... the Aeromax sold well!

And maybe the key is for some to have a Trad or Aero for the weekend and an Eva for more everyday or Gt. You can still have your regular everyday mundano as well.


Cheers

The reception has been very positive and the upshot is it has put the Morgan name back on the international stage. The other benefit, and one I have been long a proponent of (in fact, spent 15-minutes waxing lyrical at Wilton House to an attendee about this very point), is that is makes younger generations aware of Morgan Motor Company!

I am with Boshly.

Sunscreen at the weekends is wonderful but I need something more practical for the week. I feel terrible when I get in the VW Mogodon on mondays and press the perfectly formed buttons. It is like having to leave a little bit of myself behind in the garage.

Now an Eva gives me the best of both worlds. I just need a can opener and marking-out kit....sunroof here I come. Yet another benefit of Aluminium.

Well done Morgan.

the max was a very limited run, how about eva?
And I also think the customer base for the eva will be quite different than the max. I can see a lot of these going to russia and middle east.
