Production of the Morgan Plus 8 has seen over 4,000 cars being built to date. Like the 4/4 there still exists a waiting list of several years as demand for this unique car is still healthy.

This model uses Rover's all-alloy 3.5 liter V8 motor and is light, compact and powerful at 165 bhp. Top speed reached 193 km/h with tremendous rapid acceleration that few cars can match. At first glance it looks identical to its predecessor with differences being longer wheelbase and slightly differing body contours.

The obvious difference is the light alloy wheels, the sliding pillar front suspension and leaf-sprung rear suspension remaining as before. Steel bodywork was the norm, but there was an optional lightweight sports version from 1975. Earlier models used the noisy Moss gearbox, but from 1972 the Rover four-speed was used with a five-speed being available from 1977.

In 1984 fuel injection appeared which was joined by rack-and-pinion steering in 1986. Latest models boast a 3.0-liter engine that gives 190 bhp.
