Morgan releases teaser image of EvaGT model

Retro-themed British motoring brand Morgan has released a teaser image of its upcoming EvaGT model before its official launch.

The EvaGT is a four-seater coupe model based on the Aero Supersports platform but will use a modified variant of the aluminum chassis – the same one used for the Morgan GT3 racer.

Away from the teaser image Morgan is keeping mum about design details but apparently the vehicle is being designed by computer software and is all about very fluid, aerodynamic styling. The body panels, designed and stamped by machine, will also be made of aluminum and be hand finished.

Under the bonnet Morgan is continuing with BMW-sourced engines and will make use of the 3.0 litre, twin-turbo straight-six unit with 225 kW and 400 Nm of torque featured in the BMW 335i. This high-tech engine will propel the EvaGT to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds given that the weight of the car is only 1,250 kg. Top speed is a law-breaking 273 km/h and fuel consumption is impressive too with a combined cycle rating of just 7 litres/100 km.

After the EVaGT debuts at Pebble Beach in California on August 15, it will have an exclusive production run of only 100 units. Morgan has begun taking orders on the car requiring a £5,000 pound deposit even though official pricing hasn’t been announced.
