Morgan pushes back EvaGT launch to incorporate advanced magnesium alloys
The British automaker, steeped in tradition as it is, has reportedly received a significant grant from the UK government's Technology Strategy Board that will see Morgan directing a project to adapt a new magnesium alloy for use in an automotive chassis.
So rather than launch the new EvaGT – which was set to debut in production form at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show this March – Morgan has opted to push the advanced 2+2's introduction back until 2014 in order to make the best use of the development. As a result, prospective buyers will have to wait a while longer, but when they finally do get their hands on the finished product, it promises to be lighter – and therefor better – than previously envisioned.
