Supercharged Morgan Plus 8 Cafe Racer
Such is the enduring affection for the Morgan Plus 8 that earlier this year the Company decided to reintroduce the model to their current range of cars, with a price tag of over £85,000.
This 1985 Morgan Plus 8 is a very rare supercharged car. The previous owner, and 'Bugattista', had marque experts Libra Motive fit the supercharger (at a cost of over £5,000 back in 1996) and then gave the car its current paired-down appearance with the addition of cycle wings and aero screens to create what is best described as a Morgan Cafe Racer.
A future owner could go further down this minimalist route by removing any remaining brightwork, like rear bumper and luggage rack etc, or alternatively re-instate the front wings, and follow the aggressive new styling of the latest model.
Either way the car now requires work having been enthusiastically driven but not pampered by its current owner, and the cost of a repaint and new interior has been allowed for in the asking price... although the car could be enjoyed 'as is'. Very competitively priced.
