Just got this from my dealer - these are a little beyond my budget!

Dear Morgan Enthusiast,

Within the next year Morgan will be building two very, very limited production, very special cars, one, 6 of which will be available for the entire world, the other 8-10 of which will be built for the world.

The first will be the Morgan Plus 8 GTR, a full road-going, track ready modernized version of “Big Blue” from the late ‘90s, built to run at LeMans and any FIA events. This will be the Aero based chassis, BMW N62 powerplant,

Fixed hardtop, high non cutaway doors, all the appropriate scoops and equipment to make it any event ready, kind of a serious version of the Morgan 50th Anniversary Edition but on steroids. If sold here in America it will be imported under Show and Display. 6 are available world wide….pricing should be in the $250,000 or slightly above range. Please let me know if you would like to reserve one….they will probably be spoken for in a day or so…..

The other car is the Morgan Plus 4 Cx T, of which 10 will be built. You may have seen the recent prototypes from Singer and Ruf of a Porsche based Paris to Dakar full desert/go anywhere rally car. This will be Morgan’s version of such with an

External roll cage, much larger tires, raised ride height for ground clearance, ‘roo catcher protecting the front, spare gasoline jerry cans built into the wings….much, much more. This is being constructed as a “lifestyle” vehicle with owners participating in a Moroccan based off road event and driving experience later this calendar year. Further events, world wide, are being explored for the lucky owners. Pricing should be, again, the $250,000 range including the rally event in Morocco. If you are familiar with these type events normal entries for historic events usually start at $100,000+ or, participation in the Dakar or African rallies, in the $millions so this is truly a bargain for the adventure(s) of a lifetime! Importation into the USA will be done under Show and Display or Fast Act, whichever is easier and time suitable.

Again, please contact me asap with interest in reserving one….once again, they will be spoken for immediately.

Wow the Plus 8 GTR sounds great, maybe they had an excess of LHD Gts as I havent heard of them being offered elsewhere and this is a way of shifting them, On the other hand the Plus 4 ? rally car sounds diabolical and its not April 1 ?

I wonder if the BMW engines came from the liquidation sale of parts from TVR last year ?

I was going to say the same except for it being Bristol ?
It would have been better if they had used the tweaked lump from AC Schnitzer(?)

That must be the source of the N62 BMW engines I guess.

The Plus 8 GTR I can understand better than the Plus 4 CX-T. I truly hope that MMC can turn a Morgan into a Paris Dakkar type vehicle , but I seriously doubt it . Too many compromises from the word go

An interesting project , but prices are way out of my league.

i think there were some rolling chasis as well, the run out versions of the aero and plus 8 were all stickers tape and vents but to me they did look rather stunning....Em

I thought they might have found a less extreme solution to the Mog ground clearance issues.

I reserve judgement on the plus 4 rally car .... depends how it's done .... the butch rally look can work well with classic car shapes.
