Morgan Plus 8 GTR

 

Morgan Plus 8 GTR

First Of Nine

From Worcestershire England, in striking Yas Marina Blue, the first Morgan Plus 8 GTR evocative of the original design sketches pays homage to prominent nineties Plus 8 race car ‘Big Blue’. Limited to just nine examples, the Plus 8 GTR project has only been possible due to the recent availability of several Plus 8 rolling chassis.

The remaining eight cars are all in production, and the remaining are to be completed in the first quarter of 2022. Each customer has worked closely with Morgan’s design team to commission their bespoke example, further demonstrating the company’s personalization capabilities.

 

 

The nine cars are built in varying configurations of transmission and drive side according to customer requirements, with five of the eight vehicles being exported globally.

Performance upgrades include a new engine tune and cannon-style twin-exit sports exhausts. These enhancements improve throttle response and increase the power output over the previous production Plus 8.

The Plus 8 GTR explores design themes such as the high shoulder line, not seen on a traditional Morgan body for decades. Its five-spoke center-lock wheels are reminiscent of Morgan’s 1990s Plus 8 race cars, framed perfectly by subtly re-sculpted wheel arches. Further design elements include a revised rear end, front wings, and front splitter, all of which are handcrafted using aluminum. A hardtop with a cockpit vent completes the race-inspired aesthetic. 

 

 
 

 

For The Lucky Few

Cues from Morgan's racing history

The interior features new door cards to fit with the high door tops, bespoke GTR dials, and the option of carbon fiber racing seats and harnesses. Unique graphics feature throughout and each GTR is fitted with a plaque denoting its number in the build sequence.

The Plus 8 GTR is the second Morgan special project 2021, following the Plus Four CX-T. Whilst different in their function and appearance, both models demonstrate the flexibility of the Morgan brand, celebrating craft, design, and driving experience. Morgan Motor
