Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance hosted the world premiere of Morgan’s new Eva GT. The four-seater luxury grand tourer will be production ready by 2012 as a flagship model for the English company and it is powered by BMW’s award winning engine, N54, twin-turbo.
The engine produces 302 horsepower and 295lb-ft of torque, enough to take the car from 0-100km/h (62mph) in 4.5 seconds. Top speed? 170mph. The car weighs just 1250kg in weight with economy figures of 40 mpg and 200g/km CO2 emissions.
Morgan Eva GT uses lightweight bonded aluminium chassis and offers space for four passengers and their luggage.
Eva GT measures 4.7-meters in length, 1.8-meters in width and 1.2-meters tall.
The car also features electronic stability control, xenon headlights and satellite navigation, as well as the latest multi-stage airbags.
In an interview for Autocar, Charles Morgan said the car “It’s intended to be capable as serving as everyday family transport as well as a luxury GT. The rear seats will be comfortable for children and small adults, and should serve for occasional use for taller occupants.”
Price is expected to be set between £70,000-£85,000.
