Morgan introduces special anniversary edition Plus 8
Malvern, England – The Morgan Motor Company is marking the 35th anniversary of its Plus 8 sports car with a special limited edition of the car. Since its launch in 1968, over 6000 Plus 8s have been built.
Powered by a 4.0 litre V8 engine, the 35th Anniversary Plus 8 is equipped with a number of special trim features to identify its unique status. As production of the current model is scheduled to cease during the first half of 2004, the Anniversary Edition will have an additional ‘collectible’ value for Morgan fans worldwide.
Matthew Parkin, Sales and Marketing Director, said, “The Plus 8 has become in many ways the definitive Morgan sports car. With a high power to weight ratio, exhilarating performance and handling, and a bonnet that seems to reach to the horizon, this is the car that earned Morgan Motor Company the well-deserved accolade of producing “The first and last of the real sports cars.”
“This will be the last chance for anyone who has dreamed of owning a Plus 8 to own a really important piece of Morgan heritage,” he said.
