Morgan Speedster 8 brings 1950s styling and 367bhp to FoS debut

The new Morgan Plus 8 Speedster is going to make its world debut at the Festival of Speed, going both on static display and also rumbling up the hill in the First Glance Class. But don’t expect a Sunday drive… despite its olde worlde styling, the Speedster uses the Plus 8’s aluminium chassis construction and a 4.8-litre BMW V8 producing 367bhp. No excuses needed, it’s quick: 0-62mph in 4.2sec and a top speed limited to 148bhp.

Such performance in a car that owes its styling to the 1950 4/4 makes bring a smile to our faces. We already have the low-down on the new Plus 8 Speedster, which you can read here.  If you’re coming to FoS, don’t miss it…
