Morgan Eva GT
Along with the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, we've brought you all the details of the new Morgan EvaGT as they've trickled out over the Internet in the past few weeks. Today, at the 2010 Pebble Beach Concours' concept-car lawn, we were able to lens the tradition-breaking EvaGT for the first time.
What's so new about the Morgan? The teardrop motif reminds us of old Talbot-Lago coupes, so it's not that. It's what's underneath, or more precisely, what's not. Morgan's fame has come from building wood-framed cars decades after all other automakers abandoned the technique. The EvaGT jumps several generations of automotive technology and promises a new all-aluminum chassis like the one found in its prior concept, the Aero SuperSports.
The EvaGT is also unique for Morgan, in that it will carry four passengers.
The powertrain's a stock BMW twin-turbo 3.0-liter in-line six, rated at 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Morgan estimates a 0-60 mph time of less than 4.5 seconds, and a top speed of 175 mph.
Pricing likely will start around $150,000, with the first owners taking delivery in 2012.
