2002 Morgan Plus 8
The Morgan Plus 8 is a sports car built by British car makers Morgan from 1968 to 2004 and put back into production in 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 Plus 8 was launched in 1968 using Rover's production engine, itself a re-engineered version of the Buick/Oldsmobile 215 motor with a compression of 10.5:1 fueled by two SU HS6 carburetors. At the end of 1983, the company offered an EFI version using a Bosch L-Jetronic based system. With the added power (204 bhp and low weight, the Plus 8 was, according to the magazine road tests of the day, able to best a Porsche up to 90 mph. In 1990 a 3.9 L version of the engine was fitted and that used the Lucas 14CUX fuel injection system. From 2000, all Morgan Plus 8s were fueled by the GEMS system as used on the Range Rover P38a between 1994 and 1999.
