The Pebble Beach Concours dElegance is one of the most prestigious automotive events of the year, and is drawing the attention of more and more high-end manufacturers. Count Morgan among them, as the company has just debuted the stunning EvaGT 2+2.
The proportions of the EvaGT are classic Morgan, but the rest of the design is a significant departure from the brands last new model, the Aero Supersports. The flowing lines of this new model are accentuated by flush door handles, hidden wipers, and an overall design that emphasizes aerodynamics. The two-tone paint job doesnt look bad either.
Under the skin, the EvaGT receives an upgraded version of the bonded-aluminum chassis that underpins the Supersports. The turbocharged, 3.0-liter inline-six from the BMW 335i sits under the sculpted hood and produces a healthy 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels by either a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual. Morgan expects a scamper to 62 miles per hour to take 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 170 miles per hour.
If you want one, act quickly as Morgan is limiting production to 100 units and requiring a deposit of 5000 ($7814 at current exchange rates). Production is expected to begin in mid 2012.
