Morgan Plus 8 Speedster

This is the pinnacle of what a sports car should be, 40’s two seater styling which is handmade combined with modern running gear all built around a bonded aluminium chassis. Throw into the mix that it will be limited to a run of only 60 examples and its damn near perfect. 
 
I love the aero screens, the low slung doors you can put your arm on and those vents all along the hung bonnet. Oh and under that handmade bonnet is a BMW 4.8ltr V8 with 390bhp on tap through either a 6 speed manual or 6 speed automatic gearbox before unleashing all that power at the rear wheels. 0-60 mph, 4.5 seconds and a limited top speed of 155mph!!!!! This thing can shift. 
 
So how much for an out and out sports car, well as a minimum £70,000, but then you’ve got options. 
 
Its simply stunning, the one below was begin taken out of the Morgan Factory showroom ready for delivery to some lucky new owner. I love the little details the racing tow hooks, its lack of bumpers, its huge wheels, those are vents on the side, the leather strap over the bonnet and the roll hoops. Then there’s the sumptuous interior and that exhaust note from the rumbling V8 that sounds like it coxing you to play. The whole car looks purposeful, sleek and designed to go fast.
