Is The Speedster Plus 8 The Coolest Morgan Ever Made?

Illustration for article titled Is The Speedster Plus 8 The Coolest Morgan Ever Made?

Morgan built just sixty of these speedsters to celebrate its centenary, and they are all sold out by now. Driving experiences don’t get much purer than this.


Morgan’s mission is to keep the tradition alive. It’s up to them, it’s their responsibility. Who else is going to do it?

Look at the Plus 8 Speedster. It’s got a big, powerful V8, side exhausts and no windshield, because glass is heavy and should have no place on a sports car. Google it!


There will always be people out there who find even the Aero 8 a bit too modern for its own good, but want Morgan’s latest technology in their cars, meaning the same aluminum chassis instead of the classic steel underpinnings, plus the correct number of BMW’s horses under that long hood linked to a six-speed manual.

Since it’s 2015 and not 1935, you can also opt for flappy paddles, but honestly, you might also want to get a windshield while you’re there. The Plus 8 Speedster won’t be your cup of tea.

Is the new Porsche Boxster Spyder a better “pure” sports car? Certainly. But this is a wider grin.

No of course it isn’t. The 3 wheeler is the coolest.
