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.

      I visited the Morgan factory in 1982. Rode my motorcycle there from RAF Upper Heyford where I was stationed. I took a lady friend with me. We were allowed to walk around the factory unguided, see how the cars were built, and ask questions of anyone we saw. It was a wonderful experience. We talked to a gentleman while he stamped louvers in a bonnet hood, watched the women sewing the interiors, we even checked out a classic trike being restored by the factory. I'm sure things have changed quite a bit in nearly 30 years, but I hope it's still as easy going today as it was in '82.

      THIS is what Chrysler should be building. The 300 is a good start, but they need to make more cars that look like they belong in Batman: The Animated Series.

        ...What? Chrysler's cars are irrelevant enough to the modern era as it is.

          The new 300 is an excellent, beautiful car, and the 200 is actually half-way decent (if you can over-look the Sebring side profile). They have a way to go, but I think in the past year Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge has impressed me the most. A large portion of their stuff is GREATLY improved. They actually have an idea of where they'd like to be in five years, which is more than we can say about Ceberus-owned Chrysler LLC from a few years ago...

          haha exactly. they have no use in the modern era. might as well build some beautiful nostalgic vehicles.

          I disagree - the 300 is a very nice looking and well reviewed car, and their whole product range has seen either great new models (Jeeps, Durango, the 300) or very vast improvements such as the 200 and the Journey. Chrysler has put itself right back into top contention in several areas: large sedan, SUVs, trucks, and crossovers. If you count the 500 then also in the micro car segment as well.

        you all wouldn't give a crap about chrysler if they didn't channel the classic vehicles of the past with the 300. imagine the 300 not existing. with that, there have been incredible improvements over the years. i agree. but the styling needs to be pushed more with the other vehicles, and even maybe the 300 a bit. i want to feel classy. i want to feel a low stance. and i want it in black. they're very close.

      The 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse called, it wants it's aftermarket wheels back.

        Funny, because I've seen those wheels on other cars other than an Eclipse. You didn't read the article, did you? Those wheels are from the Aero 8 and are actually manufactured by Morgan.

          I think he means those non multi-spoke wheels look ridiculous on a morgan and look more at home on a tuner car. a little humor, elmo

      Duck-and-cover! When those who thought the new 911 looked too much like the old 911 see this, it's every man for himself! If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

      Should I assume this is a BMW v8?

        @Teleny411
        It's probably a Rover V8, much like the last Plus 8. The Aero 8 gets the BMW V8.

      I love Morgan's - I can't help it! They're so beautiful, and it's so great to see a company still building classics with that modern touch. If I remember correctly it was the Aeromax that got me into Morgan's originally, and I'd just die and go to heaven ever since if I could own one.
