• First sketch of the future Morgan EvaGT

A couple of months ago we got a first look at Morgan Motor Company’s plans for an EvaGT when they released a teaser image of the future luxury car. The image was a little dark, but it intrigued us nonetheless. The car is set to debut this weekend at the Pebble Beach Concours, but apparently Morgan thought that an extra little teaser a couple of days before the event wouldn’t hurt. They provided the world with this sketch of the EvaGT and, although it is much better than the obscure teasers Ford provided for the Explorer, it still leaves us wanting more. Ahhh, the beauty of teasers.

The EvaGT is built on a modified version of the aluminum chassis featured on the Aero 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.

If the specifications and teasers are enough to make you want to take a closer look at the EvaGT then come back this weekend as we will have official details once the car debuts at Pebble Beach. But if you are seriously interested then you better act fast; the EvaGT is set to go into production in 2012 with only 100 units planned and Morgan will be taking deposits on Sunday.

I don’t know what to say on this one. I also notice that the hood of the car and the platform used is just like on Bugatti cars. Based on rumors, this will be created for the upcoming auction.

The front hood reminds me of Bugatti car with that speed performance well I don’t think that its appropriate to compare this one with the Bugatti. The long base wheel version is kid of lame and the performance is not that great.

I don’t think that Morgan have an impressive styling and performance. I don’t even think that it would its production version would stand out. I guess they need a overhaul for their production vehicle to make it worth starring!

Well, actually I find this sketch similar with Veritas!hmm. I guess its too early to speculate on this production. It would be better if we will wait on this production.

haha. Yeah , it’s really looks like Bugatti because of those grille. BTW, I think I have seen those wheels on Lamborghini cars and Porsche as well but I can’t remember the maker of that tyres.

When I first saw the sketch I though it was a flat version of Bugatti Veyron. Oh please I wan to see an original platform and amazing performance. Btw, it seem that we need to wait for a longer time before we could see a teaser image for this concept.

It much like a future car, I would really be waiting for this car to come in reality.
