These are the first official pictures, alright renderings, of the newly developed British supercar Moragn EvaGT. The car is set for debut at the ongoing Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Unlike other Morgan cars, and we mean all of them, the EvaGT looks absolutely magnificent. They obviously went for the best compromise between Morgan traditional design cues and modernity, and the result is an exquisite car.
Like it’s brother Morgan Aero SuperSports, the Eva also uses an all-aluminum structure instead wood. Using aluminum not only helps to keep the weight of the car low, also means that the car has a rigid and well-balanced chassis and will handle like a charm.
As for the engine, Morgan offers BMW’s infamous 3.0 liter N54 twin-charged straight-six unit which at 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque is fairly powerful and also economical for its type. Given the lightweight of the car (2,760 lbs) this engine enables the car to go from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 second and reach top speed in excess of 170 mph, and yet return 33.6 mpg.
Pricing and availability of the Morgan GT are yet to be announced, but the word is it’ll go on sale in 2012 with a price tag between £70,000-£85,000.
