The Morgan Roadster
is the latest model produced by the Morgan Motor Company
. It was introduced in 2004 replacing the Morgan Plus 8
. The car is identical to its predecessor except for new modern Ford V6 mechanicals. The new engine develops similar power, though less torque, and is slightly lighter than the Rover V8
it replaces giving the car increased performance and better fuel economy. Air conditioning is now standard on US models. Like the previous models, the chassis is of galvanised steel and of the ladder type with five tubular or box section cross members. The body is built of steel and aluminum around an ash frame. Suspension is traditional Morgan slider type
up-front and solid axle / leaf spring at the rear.
The standard colour range is Royal Ivory, Corsa Red, Indigo Blue, Black and Connaught green. Any single or two-tone combinations from the ICI Autocolour range is available as an option.
