About this Morgan Plus 8 Injection After a successful debut at the 1968 London Motor Show, production of the Morgan Plus 8 commenced initially in 3.5 Litre form then 3.9 Litre (1990), 4.0 Litre(1998 - 2004) with an optional 4.6L (1996 - 2000) all based on the same Land Rover block. While the traditionally styled Morgan's brick-like aerodynamics restricted top speed to around 125mph (more than fast enough for most people driving an open car) the Rover V8's 168bhp and 210lb/ft of torque made for supercar-league performance through the gears. Indeed, in its later 3.9-litre form, the Plus 8 proved quicker to 80mph than the contemporary Porsche 911 Turbo. Its lengthy production run has seen the Plus 8 alter little in outward appearance, save for ever widening wheel arches accommodating fatter rubber, yet beneath the skin the changes have been innumerable. Better gearboxes, fuel injection, rack-and-pinion steering, improved corrosion protection and paint, telescopic rear dampers, air bags and the obligatory catalytic converter have all become part of the Pus 8 picture over the years, along, of course, with bigger engines to offset the inevitable increase in weight.
