Morgan EvaGT sketch
From the hydrogen-powered LIFEcar concept to the Aero SuperSports to its history of wood-framed cars, Morgan spans an incredible variety of technology and aims with its cars, all wrapped in a classically-styled package. For this month's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, Morgan is turning its eye once again to the future for the EvaGT.
With a more aggressively aerodynamic design that still draws on its classical roots, a taste of the greener side of driving, and still-solid acceleration figures, the EvaGT is shaping up to be an all-rounder of a concept. Borrowing its engine from BMW in the form of the 306 horsepower N54 twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline six, the car is expected to hit 62 mph in just 4.5 seconds, carry on to a top speed of 170 mph, and do it all while averaging 33.6 mpg. Not bad.
Weighing in at 2,760 pounds, the coupe is light by modern standards, helping to enable its solid acceleration and fuel economy figures, though the math seems to be a bit more favorable than we'd expect from a conventionally-powered six-speed manual or optional automatic rear-driver.
The full details on the newest four-seater from Morgan will have to wait just a few more days until the Pebble Beach concours kicks off on August 15, but until then this latest teaser sketch will have to suffice.
