    Morgan Motor Company, widely known as one of the best retro-modern automakers in the world, is building the Plus 8 Speedster straight out of the 1940s.

    Combining modern technology with sleek, old school design, Morgan Motor Company’s new roadster is a tribute to founder, Henry Frederick Stanley Morgan’s factory on Pickersleigh Road in Malvern, United Kingdom.

    Features of the Plus 8 Speedster:

    • 367-horsepower 4.8 liter V8 (from BMW)
    • 6-speed manual or automatic
    • Zero to 62 mph in 4.2 seconds
    • Top speed of 148 mph (governed)

    The Plus 8 Speedster is expected to go on sale this summer for an estimated price of $117,486…

    Needless to say, you’re going to have to pony up a good bit of money to be cruising around in this retro-modern beauty!
