Find out more about the Morgan Eva GT, and check out the new 2+2 from several angles, inside.
British automaker Morgan Motor Company has officially revealed the beautiful, long-hooded Morgan EvaGT. The four-seater uses a 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six petrol engine from BMW, though this could change by the time the car enters production in 2012.
The engine generates 306 bhp (228 kW) and up to 295 ft-lb (400 Nm) of torque, and should propel the 2755 pound (1,250kg) car from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds. The car will likely hit a top speed of 170 mph (274 km/h), but when driven normally should get 40 mpg (imperial). Automatic and manual six-speed transmissions will be available.
The Morgan EvaGT makes great use of aluminum, the featured material on the body and chassis. Despite the car's light weight, it will comfortably seat four in a 2+2 setup, with plenty of room for bags and cargo.
Pricing on the Morgan EvaGT will range from £70,000 to £85,000. £5,000 deposits are now being taken for the car.
