The teaser for the Morgan Eva GT
Call out the lumberjacks. Morgan are planning a new car – the Morgan Eva GT - which will be a limited run, 4 seat coupe which will be previewed at Pebble Beach in August before production begins in 2012.
The Morgan Eva GT is planned to have a bonded aluminium chassis to give rigidity but also to save weight and use superformed aluminium to create the flowing lines of the bodywork. Power will come from a BMW 3 litre straight six mono twin turbo with direct petrol injection and 306bhp which will be good enough for a 4.5 seconds 0-60mph and 40mpg.
Morgan is aiming to bring a new car to the market every two years thanks to its size, flexibility and expertise, and the Eva GT is the first of these. Others planned include electric cars and weekend track event cars.
Proposed spec for the Morgan Eva GT is:
Richard Hammond will be pleased.
