Most powerful Morgan Plus 4 ever

Most powerful Morgan Plus 4 ever for Geneva reveal

Morgan is to boost power in its Plus 4 roadster; the new car and 3 Wheeler will receive European debuts at Geneva show next week

Morgan will unveil the most powerful Plus 4 it’s ever built at the Geneva motor show next week.

The car is expected to retain a four-cylinder engine, as its name dictates, but bosses are remaining tight-lipped on specification until the show. A Morgan spokesman said it will be “by far the most powerful Plus 4 ever”.

The current model is powered by a 1998cc Ford Duratec engine developing 145bhp and 140lb ft, mated to a five-speed Mazda manual gearbox. The 877kg two-seater can accelerate to 62mph in 7.5 seconds and achieve a 118mph top speed.

Morgan introduced the Plus 4 in 1950 as a more powerful alternative to the 4/4. The original ceased production in 1969, before being resurrected in 1985 for 15 years. The current car launched in 2005.

The 2014 Morgan 3 Wheeler will receive its European premiere at the Geneva show, too.
