The Morgan Plus 8 here at Hofmann’s is a 1999 “V Plate” which has been cared for by 2 previous owners. Finished in the iconic Morgan British Racing Green with Bentley Camel Nappa leather this stunning example has been lavished with no expense spared. A full service history accompanies this vehicle with the last service been carried out less than 1,000 miles ago. Recently this example was treated to a brand new Triple Mohair Hood, Mohair Tonneau, Full Interior Re-Trim in Bentley Mulliner Spec Diamond Quilted Nappa and Wilson Carpets. Other standout items include a sport exhaust including Manifold Kit fitted in 2017 which makes this one of the best sounding V8’s we have ever heard and RPI ECU Chip with Advanced Ignition System.
The Morgan Plus 8 started life in 1968 to 2004 and put back into production in a revised form in 2012. Its instant and enduring popularity has been credited with saving the company and keeping the company famous during the 36 years of its manufacture. Among Morgan enthusiasts, it is deeply associated with Peter Morgan, the owner-chairman behind its design.
The development of the Plus 8 was led by Maurice Owen, an engineer taken on specifically for the role. The Plus 8 prototype was based on a modified chassis from the Plus 4, altered to accept the Rover alloy 3.5l V8 block. During it’s 36 years (until 2004) the Plus 8 grew by 7 inches in width and not many people know this but in the 1960’s the Plus 8 was the fastest-accelerating UK production car.
