Morgan +8, year 1981. Colour British Racing Green with a black leather interior. This fantastic Morgan +8 was sold new in the Netherlands. The car comes from a Dutch owner who has cherished the car for many years. The Morgan is perfectly serviced and maintained, the car is in very good to excellent condition with a good interior showing signs of use. This Morgan +8 is a sought after early carburettor model fitted with the 3.5 Litre Rover V8 engine. The driving experience of the Morgan +8 is unique; the car feels and drives like a big ‘go-kart’; sporty and blessed with enormous acceleration power. The sound-track of the engine is splendid; the powerful pulses can be felt melting together with all the other impressions of speed. On the other hand, the Morgan +8 can be driven lazily and in comfort over long distances with the sonorous V8 rumble in the background. This fine Morgan features a walnut dashboard, a chrome baggage-rack, side-curtains, a MotoLita steering wheel, a Mohair tonneau-cover, 12V socket, Brooklands racing screens, a badge-bar with additional spot-lamps, safety belts, head-rests and a Stainless-Steel exhaust. This is a formidable Morgan +8!
