Proud 19 years after the Aero 8 brings the British sports car manufacturer Morgan a new vehicle on the market. The “Plus Six” is celebrating its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show and is a completely new vehicle. Even if the first glance suggests something else. It is the official successor to the Plus 8 and comes with a glued aluminum chassis on the new CX generation platform. This platform will also provide the basis for other models in the future. Stiffness, driving dynamics, crash safety, weight -> there should be significant improvements everywhere. The vehicle grows in terms of both the wheelbase and the interior. The trunk is a good third larger, but the outside dimensions have remained the same. Morgan is also sticking to the ash wood frame in the new model, although it has been significantly reinforced.

Inside, there is a lot of wood, leather and large round instruments on a flat dashboard. With a view to the future, a TFT display was installed and, of course, an airbag steering wheel with shift paddles should not be missing. Somewhat critically we see the BMW shifter in our opinion, not really fits into the retro interior. In the end but a matter of taste. The highlight of the new is definitely under the long hood. There is the longitudinally installed B58 inline six-cylinder which is also used in the current Toyota Supra A90. Slightly modified, this engine delivers the proud 20 PS in the brand new G340 M374i.
