1980 Morgan Plus 8


The Morgan Plus 8 is a stunning sports car that combines classic aesthetics with modern engineering to create a truly unique driving experience. With its timeless design, powerful engine, and exceptional handling, the Plus 8 offers a thrilling ride that captivates enthusiasts and collectors alike.

First introduced in 1968, the Morgan Plus 8 was an instant hit. Its nimble chassis, derived from the iconic Morgan Roadster, was paired with a potent V8 engine, making it one of the fastest cars of its time. The Plus 8 quickly established itself as a symbol of British craftsmanship and performance. Over the years, the Plus 8 has undergone several updates and improvements, ensuring it keeps up with the evolving automotive industry. The combination of traditional hand-crafted techniques and modern technologies make the Plus 8 a true masterpiece.

The example we have on offer is a 2008 model year, presents very well in its grey over tan leather interior, and has covered some 3444km indicated on the clock, having gone over the 100 000km threshold. The car has been fully restored, having been fitted with a 6.2L V8 LS1 motor which gives the car a throaty soundtrack and spectacular performance due to the cars low weight. Some of the extensive restoration modifications include; 50mm reinforced extended chassis, bilstein shocks, BTR L/S axle, Vesconite front suspension bushes, “Suplex” front suspension, Quafe steering rack, fitted vacuum brake booster and larger calipers, ventilated disks all-round, new H/D 5 speed manual transmission, heavy duty prop shaft, stainless steel exhaust system with ceramic coated exhaust manifold, upholstered leather seats with diamond stitching, fitted new windscreen and frame to take new soft top, new side screens to fit the longer doors, and an air conditioner fitted, to name a few from the extensive list. This car is truly one to experience and get behind the wheel of, as it is filled with so much emotion.
