Why you’d want a Morgan Plus 8

Always sought-after for their uncompromised sports-car image plus effective retro styling and construction, Morgan’s are wrapped up in a legend that keeps them in an economic bubble. Depreciation is virtually unknown, demand is always high and values are remarkably stable and predictable. Scarcely affected by the recent soaring of prices for contemporary machinery, Morgans are in danger of being left behind – making them overdue for a surge themselves. As one of the most desirable models that sold steadily for 35 years, the Plus 8 certainly has to be one of the safest investments in the classic car park right now. Shoehorning the Buick V8 into the Plus 4 chassis was a challenge, ably fathomed by race engineer Maurice Owen. As soon as production was underway in 1969, the Plus 8 grew in width and wheelbase, making it slightly more spacious than other models. Once given the green light to use Rover's newly acquired V8 engine, the Morgan Motor Company lost no time installing it under the bonnet of their traditional sports car. The Morgan Plus 8 became their biggest-selling model, spanning thirty-six years from its 1968 launch to discontinuation in 2004.

This is the only 4.6 litre V8 for sale right now anywhere. The improved torque and increased BHP the optional 4.6 engine upgrade gives over the standard 3.9 is exhilarating and frankly feels like the car it should have been. The noise you’d expect with the performance you didn’t. This is a very quick car by any standard 0 to 60 in 5.3 and romping on to 133 MPH. At the time of her production she was the most powerful Morgan ever produced. The condition and history of this iconic car go hand in hand, couple that with the specification and looks this is an opportunity not to be overlooked. As ever, the car has been prepared to the highest standards by the meticulous Krazyhorse workshop and fully detailed by our partners at MAJ detailing. This includes a full professional paint rectification, then fully protected by a tough ceramic paint protection locking in a shine that has to be seen. Then add in the very significant option of the well known and renowned 5 link SSL rear suspension, tuned front SSL spring set with X4 adjustable shock absorbers, bespoke Morgan Parc Wood dash board with vintage switch set, Mulfab Alloy Radiator and a factory specification tick list to die for, you have what has to be the best Plus 8 available now, and maybe Ever?
