1 of 185 examples made
2 owners since new
newly delivered in the UK
11.900 miles since new!
This Morgan 35th anniversary is just superb. Because of the 35th birthday of the Morgan 8 cylinders, a total of 185 anniversary models were made. Approximately 100 Morgans went to the United States and 85 cars stayed in Europe.
This specific example is 1 of those 185 limited edition models and is equipped with a 190 horsepower 4.0 litre V8 Land Rover engine.
One of the main features of this superb and iconic sportscar is the high power to weight ratio. It might be clear that this car is very special to drive if one can accelarate from 0 to 100 in approximately 5.6 seconds.
The superb Land Rover engine makes it possible to both race this car as well as tour the car around different towns.
It is well known that the 35th anniversary +8 is very desirable by Morgan enthusiasts because it is the last opportunity to of owning a Plus 8 including a really important piece of Morgan heritage.
The body of the Morgan is finished in Rolls Royce Moorland Green and the wings are in Rolls Royce Pewter. The interior is in Muirhead Shetland Lagoon and the carpets are in green as well as the softtop and the tonneau cover. The Morgan has driven only 11.900 miles since new.
The walnut veneer decorates the dashboard. Several other options are ordered by the first owner of this Morgan, such as a full weather equipment, a electrically heated windscreen and a radio/cd player.
Under the hood is one of the most impressive points of the Plus 8 Morgan. Equipped with a very powerful 190hp LandRover V8, mated to five-speed-manual transmission the vehicle shifts smooth and effortlessly.
No current production vehicle looks or feels remotely like a Morgan or recalls so much of the past. Peering through the windshield toward such an elongated hood is a unique experience and leaning ones arm on the upholstered upper sill of the rakishly low-cut door is a pleasure.
The Morgan following spans across cities, states and nations. The register of Morgan owners has included King Juan Carlos, Brigitte Bardot, Nicholas Cage, Whitney Houston, Queen Noor of Jordan, Ralph Lauren, Mick Jagger, Lord March, John Peel, Stirling Moss and Peter Sellers.
The Morgan Motor Company marked the 35th anniversary of its famous Plus 8 sports car with a special limited edition of the car that has helped to make Morgan a world famous marque. Since its launch in 1968, over 6000 Plus 8s have been built, and almost all of them are still very much in active service.
This is the last and final edition of a great marque, this is the most refined, most dependable and one of the most desirable Morgan 8 cylinders ever built.
