2012 Morgan EvaGT Preview


Morgan Motor Company announced today the debut of the EvaGT at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in Carmel, California, USA on the August 15, 2010. The four-seater coupe that has been inspired from the UK’s early 1950s sport saloons.

The EvaGT is built on a modified version of the aluminum chassis featured on theAero Supersports and is powered by a BMW 3-liter straight six engine that uses mono twin turbo and direct injection technologies and develops a total of 306 hp and a maximum torque of 295 lb-ft. It’s mated to a six speed automatic gearbox or to a six speed manual transmission. The engine sprints the car from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, while top speed goes up to 170 mph.

The new model will be built in limited numbers, with the first 100 units being delivered in 2012. The is the first vehicle that Morgan has launched after they stated plans to debut a new car every two years. A £5000 ($7300) deposit is required when placing your order for the new EvaGT. The full pricing has yet to be released, but Morgan says it will be priced “competitive for a car of this class.”

Stay tuned for further details on the EvaGT as well as the newInfiniti M and the Aston Martin C concept as the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance gets closer!

It is an aluminum version so expect a light-weight car. Well, if that will be the weight of the car, it will surely boost on the road. Admittedly, I think they are teasing us. They did not show the whole image of the car. smiley

Given that the 335i can actually do 0-60 in about 4.9 and this car weighs like 800lb less, I expect the 4.5 second figure to be a tad on the conservative side.

Nice it looks more sexier and bolder.

From the hydrogen-powered LIFEcar concept to the Aero SuperSports to its history of wood-framed cars, Morgan spans an incredibly variety of technology and aims with its cars, all wrapped in a classically-styled package.
