Here's a teaser image from the quixotic British brand Morgan introducing the upcoming EvaGT.

The EvaGT is a four-seater coupe model based on the Aero Supersports platform but featuring a modified variant of that aluminum chassis - one also used for the Morgan GT3 racer.

The vehicle is being designed by computer software and aims for a very fluid, aerodynamic styling. The body panels, designed and stamped by machine, will also be made of aluminum and feature a hand finish.

Under the hood of this grand tourer will be something far more familiar - a BMW-sourced 3.0 liter, twin-turbo straight-six with 306 PS (225 kW) and 400 Nm of torque featured in every -35i model from the Bavarian brand. That engine will propel the EvaGT to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds given that the weight of the car is only 1,250 kg. Top speed is a serious enough 273 km/h (170 mph) with a very reasonable fuel consumption rating of 7 liters/100 km in a combined cycle.

The EvaGT will have a limited production run of only 100 units. Morgan has begun taking orders on the car requiring a £5,000 pound ($7,315, €6,057) deposit even though pricing has not yet been announced.

The model will debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in California on August 15.
