Morgan Plus 8

A handful of Morgan owners recently received word that the automaker is releasing a new version of the its Plus 8 ahead of next year's Geneva Motor Show. The refreshed Plus 8 will feature wheels borrowed from the Series IV Aero 8 along with air conditioning as standard equipment. Those who prefer to leave cog swopping to hydraulics will enjoy an available automatic transmission. Otherwise, the vehicle remains fairly close to what we've come to expect from the stately 8. A total of eight colors will be available along with a wide selection of interior wood finishes.

According to the TalkMorgan.com forums, buyers can expect to hand over £71,000 plus the value added tax ($112,165 at current conversion rates). Final figures on how many Plus 8 models will be produced are still vague, though it looks as if the company will keep the numbers small.
