For automotive enthusiasts when talking about sports cars, or supercars, it seems endless. There are always topics of conversation, ranging from classic models, to futuristic. Well, on this occasion will be discussed again about a beautiful supercar named Morgan EvaGT presented by Morgan Motor Company back in 2010.

Yes, this manufacturer is one of the few sports car manufacturers from the UK that able to survive today. The design of Morgan cars is known to be very classic. As we all knew, Morgan Motor Company was founded by Henry Frederick Stanley Morgan (HFS) in 1913. And today, the company is led by Charles Morgan, one of HFS's grandsons.

To develop its business, Morgan Motor Company is collaborating with BMW, Siemens and Bosch, and also a number of renowned universities in the UK. And starting in 2010 Morgan Motor Company is committed to releasing a new model every two years.

Back to Morgan EvaGT, this is a luxurious 4-seater grand tourer inspired by British sports saloons in the 1950s, such as the Bristol 400 and BMW Frazer Nash BMW 328. This classy car uses an aluminum chassis which is the result of further development of Morgan Aero SuperSports, which is a chassis that successfully competed in the GT3 Sports Car Racing international racing event. And reportedly, the chassis has received the green light from the official safety boards in the US and Europe.

While for its power source, the manufacturer is planted a BMW 6-cylinder engine, 3,000 cc, twin-turbo straight-six capable of spraying power up to 302 hp and 295 lb.ft of torque and combined with ZF automatic transmission systems or manual 6-speed. The BMW engine is also said to have complied with Euro 5 and Euro 6 emission regulations.

The use of the aluminum platform is intended to reduce the weight of the car so that it can save fuel consumption but still provide optimal safety. So, the weight of this car is only 1,250 kg with fuel consumption of 14.16 km/liter. The top speed that can be achieved by EvaGT is estimated at around 273 kph and acceleration 0-100 kph in around 4.5 seconds.

"EvaGT is intended to be able to serve the family's daily transportation wrapped in a luxury GT car," said Charles Morgan.

"The back seat will be comfortable for children and adults, and it should also be able to make it comfortable if occasionally someone taller is used it," he added.
Therefore, in order to provide extra practicality, the dimensions of the Eva GT were made 4.7 meters longer, 1.8 meters wider and 1.2 meters taller than Morgan Aeromax. While the standard features available on the EvaGT include ABS, ESP, Xenon headlight, satellite navigation, and the latest airbag technology, namely multi-stage 'smart' airbags.

Like other Morgan cars, the EvaGT models are made by hand in its Malvern-based sportscar specialized factory. And this British manufacturer has only made it in a limited amount of 100 units and has been produced since 2012. Morgan EvaGT has made its debut at the 2010 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance and is sold at an estimated price ranging of £70,000 to £85,000.
However, in 2012, the Company announced that its deliveries would be delayed to 2014 to allow for the use of magnesium alloy technology. The company reported that they had spent £1.4 million on such development.

In early 2013, dealers confirmed that the model had been canceled. Customer's £5000 deposits would be returned when requested or could be used for the purchase of a different model. And the model that was launched at the 2010 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is probably the only Morgan EvaGT car ever made. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MORGAN CAR NEWS | CLASSIC DRIVERS | WIKIPEDIA]
