Morgan Eva GT: exclusive pics

Posted: 20 Aug 2010
This is the new Morgan Eva GT. It is a four-seat, luxury GT sportscar and as you can quite clearly see, it is cool.
It is also like no Morgan before it. Far from being made out of wood, iron or the bones of peasants, the Eva GT is instead a podium for advanced materials and motorsports know-how. The body panels are made from aluminium, the chassis (aluminium) was honed in the GT3 motorsport class, and the engine is of award-winning stock, courtesy of BMW.
A twin-turbo 3-litre straight six pumping out 306bhp powers the rear wheels via a manual six-speeder or an auto, and helps propel the Eva GT from 0-62mph in an estimated 4.5 seconds. The company reckons the GT will hit 170mph, while returning 40mpg on the combined cycle, thanks in part to a kerb weight of 1,250kgs.
