PERFORMANCE TO SURPRISE
No matter how fast you’re going, or what gear you’re in, the acceleration of the all-new Morgan Plus Four is effortless. This outstanding performance is thanks to the car’s exceptionally low weight – from just 1007 kg dry – and its BMW 2.0-litre four-cylinder TwinPower Turbo engine, which produces 255 bhp and up to 295 lb ft of torque.
In the automatic variant, 0-62 mph takes just 4.8 seconds (manual model: 5.2 seconds), and the acceleration doesn’t stop until the car reaches its top speed of 149 mph. In fact, performance of the all-new Plus Four is on par – if not exceeds, in the real world – that of the previous generation 3.7-litre Morgan V6 Roadster.
A further focus during the development of the car was optimising its efficiency. Incredibly, its fuel economy remains similar, and CO2 output is significantly lower, than the outgoing model, despite a 65% increase in power and torque.
