BMW B58 versions described here. All the advertised info I've seen points to the Plus 6 having the 335hp (250kW) version and in any case the Morgan Plus 6 has been added (in red) to the Wiki application list.

BMW quote 339hp for the new Z4 and I cannot see Morgan have an up rated version.

However, as I have said in other posts....over 400hp is quite commonly offered by tuning companies.......


Honesty means doing it right, even when no one is looking!

15 mins and a laptop.


Everyone loves a Morgan. Even me, unless it's broken again.

Without an LSD you wouldn't get that power on the road with such a light car. And traction control.

When Plato tested the Aston Martin with 700bhp on a 0-62-0 blat, it couldn't get the power down, and lost big time to the Ferrari it was up against.

Which backs up my theory as to why that Aston couldn't get away from my Plus 4 in Scotland. evil

Could it be that the Aston driver didnt feel like driving faster. Many is the times that my Ferrari has been overtaken by white van man.

I agree quite often an oik in his supernova will sit beside you at the lights revving away, I just let them carry on and "win" the drag race they seem to have something to prove innocent

No he was balls out. It sounded fantastic, but the lack of road width, lack of straights, loose surface, hairpin bends means it isn't good for a lardy high power electronic limited supercar, whereas a simple lightweight Morgan is very well suited.

When he took a wrong turn and we got in front, the way he came past on the only straight told me all I needed to know.

Agreed Howard , there are some ridiculously fast humdrum cars out there with nutters in the driving seat and sometimes families in tow , must be in 2nd gear with foot flat to floor !
