ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The formidable powerplant fitted to this Roadster is the desirable Ford 3.7 Litre V6 Cyclone unit developing 280bhp. In a car weighing just 950kg, the power output equates to almost 300bhp per tonne with a top speed of 140mph and 0-62mph in just 5.5 seconds! The beautiful centre hinged twin bonnet wings are super-lightweight and lift to reveal a spotlessly clean engine bay with all stickers and build plates present and correct. Rebelling against its traditional appearance, the cars performance is phenomenal with the quiet and silky smooth V6 becoming not so quiet just when you want the foot down thrill that has made Morgan so famous. The six-speed manual gearbox is a joy to use.

The braking system features discs to the front which have been replaced in March 2023 using genuine Morgan items.
